    I purchased this just a couple months ago, backed up about 8 jump-drives, 2 laptops, and used it to store all my photos, Powerpoints for school, wedding photos, ETC. Oh, and my dissertation! However, one night last week as I was trying to save a PPT for school, it wouldn't save, and now it won't work at all. 2 tech guys have looked at it and said it's dead, it's not "spinning" inside and won't connect to any computers, and that IF I want to recover ALL my data, it's going to cost a fortune! What good is a back-up hard-drive if it needs another back-up? :( SO SAD.
