I had a 3 Tb external drive croak. It was fine, but after unmounting it, it wouldn't mount again and neither DiskUtility or DiskWarrior could fix it because of an unspecified hardware malfunction. DiskWarrior is able to transfer the files from the dead dog onto a new drive, although it has been beavering away for three days and nights straight and is just halfway there. Is the enclosure of the defunct LaCie drive of any use, or should it just go onto my electronic scrap heap, which is going to cost me a fortune at the recycling center?
