    Storage Solutions 1TB Toshiba external drive suddenly crashed

    Not sure which one he used. He is sleeping now because he is in another timezone but I just checked with another friend who uses iBoysoft NTFS for Mac. Edit on June 2: He is using Mounty for NFS.

    Storage Solutions 1TB Toshiba external drive suddenly crashed

    My son-in-law, who works a lot on Apple devices and occasionally on Windows, has just informed me that there is a free NTFS plugin on App Store that works very well for him. So I guess I'll stick with NTFS all the way. My drive is coming on Monday. I was not intending to be able to read the...

    Storage Solutions 1TB Toshiba external drive suddenly crashed

    OK here's my plan of action. Open to advice/suggestions. 1. Format my new SSD as APFS. Copy data from my old HDD to the new SSD. 2. Back on the Windows desktop, reformat the Toshiba (still NTFS) and copy over the data from the second HDD in the desktop and put it also on the new SSD on the Mac...

    That does not matter much. When there is bulk data to transfer, I will not be sitting and watching it happen. When it is smaller amount of data, double of a few mSec is immaterial. More importantly, are these kind of utility software available for MacOS?

    Manually tracking checksum is not really practical.

    Storage Solutions 1TB Toshiba external drive suddenly crashed

    Is there anything special I have to do when I first connect the drive to my Mac mini? Like is there a particular format I need to do? Any permissions to set? My first task will be to copy the data from my Toshiba to the new drive. Is there anything I need to keep in mind if I ever want to open...

    Storage Solutions Help me identify my laptop's SSD

    I added a ssd in my son-in-law's HP laptop a few months back. I got tremendous amount of support from the HP support community to identify and choose the correct ssd. I bought and installed the WD SN570 and it works fine. I suggest that you too should check on that community.

    Storage Solutions 1TB Toshiba external drive suddenly crashed

    I opened them on the Mac directly from the Toshiba drive and they worked fine. One pdf, one docx and a few jpgs. I will now need to buy myself a new external HDD so that I can copy the contents of the Toshiba and then reformat the Toshiba and use it as a backup. Then I'll have another backup on...

    Storage Solutions 1TB Toshiba external drive suddenly crashed

    Good news for me. I pulled out my Mac mini and switched it ON. Connected the Toshiba and all the data was there on it. Read only though. At least the data is all there.

    MS is offering this @ Rs 6000/- and I see FK is offering the same thing @ Rs 2400/-. How come? Is it safe? Moreover, FK seller says lifetime account. Does it mean I don't have to renew annually like with MS? The IT Depot and Amazon too have attractive pricing. What happens when one has to renew...

    Storage Solutions 1TB Toshiba external drive suddenly crashed

    Thanks Before my Toshiba 'crashed', I had been worried about deleting those folders from my primary Seagate drive. I had run Recuva and recovered most of the data and saved it on my secondary WD drive. I am reaching the conclusion that my most important data has been recovered from the original...

    My Easus partition recovery full scan is nearing completion. Will this free home edition allow me to perform recovery too or will I have to buy the pro version? Any suggestions for a cheap cloud storage service? Archive needed. Sync is desirable but not essential.

    Storage Solutions 1TB Toshiba external drive suddenly crashed

    Nope. I had seen my data on the external drive after transfer so the data was copied. Did not try other cables. This appears to be a proprietary cable. I don't have another. I did not try the back usb ports but I tried connecting to my office laptop and it is the same. My Easus Partition Master...
