World Cup is at its climax, and everyone, down to those whom know nothing about football are mentioning the word ‘World Cup’ at least once in a day. This World Cup is all about the underdogs, but I’m happy to see Holland go through the next round though. 🙂
Anyway, this post isn’t about the World Cup, but it’s what I fear I may be loosing very soon. For the past few days, I have tried my very best to try every method, every possibility I know of, exhausting every skill I have… but it all seems futile. My loss seems inevitable. It’s just like when I lost thousands on MP3s I had in my collection, and now… a similar fate seems to be looming over my head.
The external hard disk I purchased a few months back, the 320GB Transcend Hard Disk seems to be corrupted, and it seems that I have no other option but reformat the whole hard disk, hence deleting countless photos, numerous series I’ve yet to watch, software I’ve yet to install and also important documents which I have just recently transferred to this external hard disk.
At the moment, I admit that I regretted buying this hard disk. It looks really nice on the outside, while also claiming ‘anti-shock‘ features, but it’s really impossible to use without installing its ‘special software‘. Without installing the software, I am unable to use the disk, but using it(the software) will only allow me to have one huge partition available to me. Somehow, the manufacturer thought that this hard disk would only serve as a back-up for many and hence the ‘one touch back-up feature‘, but in my case… that wasn’t what I needed.
Everytime I plug in the hard disk, I’d get the notice ‘hard disk needs to be formatted in order to be used‘, and when I open the ‘special software’ which is suppose to help in accessing the hard disk, a command saying ‘The hard disk is manually write protected. Please remove the write protection to access the hard disk‘.
Well, if any of you have any solutions to solve this problem, do let me know.. because if I still fail to solve this problem by the 28th of June, it’s bye bye to all my documents, photos, movies, TV series, software and many more… 🙁
