I dont think i will get an external harddisk anymore cause everything is inside nothing for me to keep now!

You have to click/doubleclick on WinDlg.exe and not setup.exe.

Yes, that is what I said RMA. But before RMA, you have to run the diagnostics and tell them that it failed - if it fails.

Oh! it failed ! ( not a nightmate , nightmare )

In rare cases, - yes, note the word rare - some users were successful in retrieving data by running a live Linux.

Try your luck.

Yeah, you got a point. I use 4 external enclosures and use only bare bone disks now after a couple of my traditional external disks died. Fortunately I always double/triple copy my important data. The dead disks make nice paperweights, LOL.

Recently I buy SSDs for use in the external enclosures. Up to now they hold up - we'll see.
