A friend of mine contacted me this morning to ask for help with an external
USB hard Drive.
He believes the data is intact.  It just won't power on.
I don't have the time or tools to help him... if you do, please email me
directly and I'll pass along his contact info. (or I can get him to contact
You can work out the $$ details with him.  I'm sure he'd be willing to
compensate.  The data is related to his work.
He is in the River Heights area.
The drive is:
Maxtor OneTouch Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo Edition (RAID 0/1, USB
2.0/FireWire 400/FireWire 800 (1TB))

If you'd rather just supply some hints and tips I can relay them to him.


I was going to put this on the "jobs at muug.mb.ca", but after reviewing some
of the posts there it seems they are oriented to "positions" rather than
piece work.
