This is what the inside of my external hard drive looks like. Jason had to open it and see if the actual hard drive was dead or not because the computer kept telling me I had to format it before it would work. Well, I had all my scrapbook stuff backed up on it and COULDN'T format it. Well, it was all erased....by the sub woofer I had sitting on it. Who knew that there are magnets inside speakers and that it just might, definitely erase my files.
