Having problems with your Fujitsu PC Desktops ?

Dropped new external drive from 2 ft, please help

\015 I just got a new Fujitsu Wyvo 300GB "mobile storage device" (pretty much an external hard drive). The device is 2.5", with an HDD inside. \015\012Soon after opening the packaging, I dropped the drive. I was on my bed; it slid off the bed side and hit the wooden floor. The second thing in the manual says "do not drop". F my life. The drop was 63 cm/24.8 in./2.067 feet. Will this roughly two feet drop do anything??? I then plugged in the drive, for the first time, and it was detected, installed, and worked fine. What can I do to be sure it's okay? Please help, Thanks. It sucks 'cause I just got it too (as a gift).\015

Answers :

You can run a disk utility program such as disc warrior. It can put your hard drive thru read write etc...

if no such program is available to you, I would try a few reads, writes, erases and renames of files... you may just be A-OK..

I've dropped drives, piano keyboards etc... and they've lived to work again...
Besides, if you ever saw how UPS handles their packages before they get to your door or to the stores...

Is the drive working quietly? without any strange hesitations? ... sounds like you may have received grace from the hard drive elf on this one...

Ps. You may want to put in on a no-skid pad or attach a piece to the bottom to help secure it a bit.

Let me know how it goes.
