I lost my connection to an external hard drive today (a NetDisk 160 GB from ximeta.com).

I removed the software, and updated with a newer version and the drive still doesn't show up ("G" drive).

I am thinking all my files and photos are now in the toilet, but am going to take it to a computer shop tomorrow night to see if they can recover them.

Anyone have any experience with such a problem?

pull the power cord, wait 10 secs or so, power it up again...while your computer is on

I have WD hard drive that won't show up sometimes, even after restarting the computer
