My samsung 1 TB drive did not show up last time I booted up my computer, it was fine the night before with no issue or SMART errors. I have been busy this weekend so no real time to play around with it, but I figure it may be a logic board failure as the drive didn't make any horrible mechanical noises, and I noticed no slow acesses or or other issues. This was my main backup drive and was only 2 years old so I wasn't worried about it going out and I really need a lot of the data off this drive.
I was hoping maybe someone had the same drive that I could pull the board off of and get my data off, or if anyone had any tricks to try and get my data off the drive. I am going to try and see if I can get the drive to work tomorrow.

That is why "Big Data" is trying to sell you on the cloud. Share all your private stuff with the world, in exchange you get massive data redundancy.
