Its my eDrive data HDD - not the Win7 cDrive. If this data is lost I'm as good as dead. Must be a way??

We really need more info about you HD's ?


Start Computer Management Disk Management
Maximize to full screen
Take a Snip of it with the Snipping Tool, Save snip, then upload the snip here in your post.


Sometimes putting an internal HD into a HD Dock unit will read a damaged HD

Big Red is showing up as your E: HD (approx 30gb) Try changing the Data & Power cables to the WD 2tb HD with new cables.

Data Storage via Google
I have several g-accounts. They are the only free site, that I am aware of, that provide 15 GB free data storage. I only use it for this (non-confidential data, e.g mp3, jpg, etc.). Much cheaper than a portable flash drive, yes? Thoughts/opinions/sage advice welcome. - thank you
