hi, i have an external portable hard drive (250gb) and i recently dropped it, and ever since i cant move anything onto it. i get up to 2gb of files then it just stops and you can hear it clicking away... could i have possibly scratched it maybe? if so, is there any way of fixing this??

thanks

Eddie.

Dropping it probably has severely damaged it and is doubtful that it can be repaired. Someone else may be able to come along and give you another opinion but harddrives are fragile. You may be able to run a harddrive diagnostics on it via your system, but I would get anything you have loaded onto it that you can access and transfer it it to another harddrive, flash drive, etc.
