Good as New

Today, my Acomdata 160 GB Hard Drive was delivered back to me good as new. Actually, it IS new. For such a monumentally screwed up drive, the only option was to swap it out for a new one. Now, all I have to do is transfer all the data i pulled off it and onto the server at work back off of the server and back onto the drive. The guys at acomdata formatted the drive (Mac OS Journal HFS+) for me, so i'm kinda hesitant to plug it into a windows box and transfer it directly. Is my apprehension justified?


  • How'd you get it on the server?

    I think the short answer is that a Windows PC doesn't have drivers to see a Mac formatted disk. It may recognize the device and offer to format it for you. On the other hand, an HFS+ format is supposedly compatible with FAT, so who knows!

  • After all attempts to get the data off with the pb, i ended up taking up to the Informatics guys at the office hoping they could get it off for me. When it was plugged into a XP machine (via USB 2.0) his machine read the data and he copied it off to my server dropbox. I guess i'll give the guys at Acomdata a call tomorrow and see what they have to say about. One thing is for sure, recovering all my data in one shot would save a buttload of time.

  • It sounds like it will work with XP, so you shouldn't have too much of an issue. You could always use your iPod as a shuttle.
