have just ran a recovery program on it, to recover some of my files..and i have come across data that was created before i purchased the drive...so i am doing a full scan now to see what else shows up..
do i contact ebuyer or what?
supposed to be brand new hardrive but obviously it has been used..
Anyone who reads the Consumerwatch pages in PC Advisor each month will know how common this has been in the last year or so. If this turns out to have happened to you, then you should certainly bring it to Ebuyer's attention. For the record, Ebuyer has often been complemented by other users of this forum, and I'm sure it is a genuine error and a very rare occurrence.
but maybe some of the dates i am seeing are the dates that these files were created and not when they were put on the machine..
LET ME ADD THIS:
i have always shopped with ebuyer and i find them a good company to deal with.I don't want to give them a bad name, i have been a customer with them for years, i just hope i don't find any personal information from other poeple on here
just don't want to bad mouth anybody especially if this turns out to be false
bremner when i intially did the scan, go to about 50% and i canceled as it was taking along time..but it showed 50% of the files it found, so had a look through them, found allot of mp3's that i have never heard of, so they were not from me..also the mpeg is not from me also..but when i recovered them they didn't work, so have now done a full scan and i am trying to find them again..going through everything
Rayuk, when i recieved the hdd, i'm quite sure it was sealed..nothing sprung to mind at the time, but cannot be defenate
