I have a dell xps 435mt, read more about my rig in my profile.
Ive had nonstop issues but i'll skip the sob story.
I have lost over 3 terabytes of valuable information in the past few months.
The first one was my two 1.5TB ecogreen samsung drives in this enclosure (ICY DOCK MB662US-2S dual bay 3.5" SATA I & II to eSATA / USB 2.0 Screw-less external hard drive RAID enclosure for Mac & PC
I lost so much data it was awful, and i'm still not even near recovering.
Today it was my 750gb hitachi drive in an external enclosure as well.
Both of them connect to the PC through esata.
I think maybe esata is to blame, or windows, but i cant do this anymore!
I've lost sooo much valuable and important stuff to me that it's nearly destroyed me.
The point is I can come to terms with the lost data (
) but for this to happen again would be even more catastrophic.
How do I ensure this doesn't happen again?
Is there a driver
or fix by microsoft for esata?
I have taken such good care of these drives and the oldest one is only about 8 months old.
They are not supposed to be acting up! So what's going wrong here?
I mean FFS I have a maxtor external connected through usb and it hasn't given me the slightest issue in the past 6-7 years.
