long story short, i bought a Western Digital Tb external in Dubai and had about 460Gb of data on it, including some irreplacable mp3's, images, videos, and personal creations, and after 4 months of service, it's dying on me in a horrible way. pretty much anything i've done on a computer in the last 3 or more years, is disappearing from my life for good... :(

The local geek at the computer shop down the street
was able to read most of the info off my old hd after
it crashed.Took a couple days,cost me $10.00

Unfortunately,they went out of business.
