I recently bought the Maxtor Personal 5000LE 80 gig external drive to back up all my photos. My home computer is a (how embarrassing) Power Computing 125 mhz tower of power running Mac OS 9.1 Here's the problem. I took the Maxtor to work and hooked it up to my G4 DP 800 mhz machine and couldn't get the drive to come up. I called Maxtor and they told me that the Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar had corrupted the directories and I would need to initialize the drive and lose all data. It now won't work on my home computer unless I initialize it. Now for the heartbreaker. What I have on the Maxtor are pictures of my 5 year old daughter who was killed by a red light runner back in November along with her best friend. I have most of the pictures on ZIP but not all, and I have done extensive Photoshop work on many of the pictures that I neglected to back up. DriveSavers wants $1200 to $2400 to recover data. Who has that money? Sorry for the downer. Can anyone help?
