I have a Maxtor One Touch 4 Mini external hard drive which I had purchased 2 years ago. I accidently happen to drop it and it wouldnt just show up on My Computer..I have a lot of unbacked up data on it so I would really appreciate if I could get some help on the same as soon as possible. Thanks Much !
Open the enclosure and re-seat the hard disk - check for performance. If it is still defective, then unplug the hard disk and plug it into an adapter such as http://www.apricorn.com/product_detail.php?type=family&...
If it still won't work, you may have to take it to a computer store for data retrieval.
