Windows 7: External USB Drive failed B/U's

21 Mar 2018   #11

Win 7 Home Prem x64 SP1

Thanks for the feedback but I am honestly not interested in doing any diagnostics and/or data recovery at this point. The new drive ran the back up fine and I am happy with that. At least I know I can now recover if I have a problem. Only needed a recovery from backup a few times in the past but when you need it, you need it! Thanks again.
