I have a maxtor one touch III. One day it was working fine now all of a sudden it takes a long time for my computer to recognise it and when it finally does insists that I format, which is out of the question because I have some very important info on it. I'm not too sure if I should just take it as is to get a data recovery expert to sort out or give it a crack and pull out the HDD and put it in another caddie...any suggestions.

if you take it out you should be able to connect it to your computers MOBO directly and test it

I had same problem with my maxtor..ended up taking the hd out and buying an ext hd case. Several noted issues with the maxtor 1 touch 3.
