@parklinkz – Be careful when you carry that drive around. Hard drives are prone to fixed disk failures because of the way they’re made. I fix computers for a living, so I’ve seen a lot of damaged drives.
Don’t drop your disk drive, or the arms that write and read data to and from the disks could become damaged. If they can’t move properly, they won’t be able to access your data. It’s expensive to get the arms fixed, so make sure you keep your data backed up. That way, even if something happens to your drive, you won’t lose all your files.
