Man, this is sad news to hear. I'm sorry you didn't get your data backed up before the IBM died. I read your reply to my other post, and I'm leaning towards the Maxtor. I had a Maxtor in my old system for 2 years and it never even made a peep. I've heard that some of the Western Digital hard drives are now using IBM technology as well, and that they are beginning to fail too.
My 75GXP is failing on me, and it is my second. The first one I managed to keep afloat for about 6 months, and that wasn't easy. I had my computer apart far too many times in that 6 months.
Oh well.. we live and we learn, but lessons can be painful..

I understand how you feel right now. I had the same problem with WD. HD is the most important item in our PC.

Put it in a Ziplock bag in your freezer for a couple of hours, you have a good chance of getting about 15-20 minutes out of your drive, enough to back up your data.

Well, I replied before that, so you can't blame it on me :lol:
Good info for others, though.
