I think the Shaw-supplied external drive on my Gateway may be failing.
A couple weeks ago I noticed 75% of my recorded shows were missing. I rebooted everything and it was asking me to format it. After messing around with it a bit (without formatting) it seemed to fix itself. Now it's happening again. I'm tempted to just format it and see if that fixes it.
I understand Shaw doesn't supply external drives anymore. This drive came from Shaw as a freebie when I got the Gateway. If it ends up this thing is toast what happens? Am I SOL and need to find my own drive?
