Yeah, I called off from work cause of the snow storm. The roads are not looking good.

Dead Red My Passport!
« on: March 03, 2022, 03:22:29 PM »
Back in January, 2021 I ordered a WD 4TB My Passport Portable External Hard Drive (Red) from Amazon and now, a couple of days ago, it died. It started with a few of the files folders coming up empty and while I was trying to do some testing and investigating it just went all the way dead. Windows can see the drive, but will not open it.

So, as a replacement I'm ordering this one; WD 4TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive.
It's supposed to get here tomorrow.

Funny that you should mention this because I had been thinking about getting something similar to back everything up as my PC is starting to show its age.

Not sure why it died only after 1 year, tho. I guess you didn't get a Protection Plan with it?

There is a reason for not getting an extended warranty... in most cases recovery or repair means that you would have to send the drive into a repair center. I have/had lots of banking, taxes and other sensitive information on my external drives, so... I ain't gonna let anyone dig around in my files.  laughing7
