  1. Hi,

    I am looking for recommendations of books related to storage that can give me a deep understanding of the overall technology. Wondering if this group has any recommendation? My goal is to be able to no only understand the storage basics, but dive into the the capabilities, settings, performance, vendors etc....


  2. Hi Folks...so here is the issue that has been taking my sleep for about two weeks already. Have a Toshiba External Drive 2TB that worked great for about two years storing all my stuff, and two weeks ago it simply decided not to work anymore and it became RAW. Basically I have 500GB worth of data that I would like to recover however it has shown to be to be more complicated that I thought.

    Found TestDisk tool which has already recovered as small portion of my files (not even 5%) and it takes days running. Also found a tool called EaseUS (U$60,00 - I bought it) which apparently could see my files then I selected all of them and the program took 3 days when it finally said "completed" but NOT icon_evil.gif - I would never recommend their software to anyone.

    So here I am, there is lots of data I still need and no solution seem to be able to do the job. 

    Has anyone faced, solved or have any suggestions to a case late this?Image3.thumb.JPG.aab9c09ffc4bc76846a40b76df3ed23a.JPG

  3. Hey Guys,

    Just wondering if you guys have ever seen this issue before. Toshiba 2TB HDD stopped working. I have attached all the error images so it makes it easier to understand....

    Things I have tried;

    1- Check Disk (Failed)

    2- Connected to 3 different machines, none of them will open the disk

    3- Found this tool online Minitool Partition Wizard, and from there I can browse all of my content (Thanks God) but do not know exactly how to use it. Didnt do much with it at this point.

    Some images attached, I would appreciate knowledge sharing.
