    Please Read if Your Drive Isn’t “Recognized” Anymore. An Easy Primer and Tutorial. Many people have complained about the Toshiba 2.5″ drives (of all capacities and price points) quickly ‘dying’ after a very short time. This opinion is prevalent on both Amazon and other shopping sites and even Toshiba’s direct site itself.I was in the same boat. My Canvio Basics failed to be “recognized” by my PC within 1 month. My 2-star rating reflects this.HOWEVER, this is directed toward those who believe “all [my] valuable data is lost forever”.

AC adapter). and I want to note that you could spend a…
