Harddrive Crash???

Discussion in 'General Hardware' started by Son-Of-Liberty, Feb 21, 2002.

  1. Ok I have a apple G4 80 Gig server that held alot of info and i unpluged the backup power unit after shuting down the computer. And when i restarted it everything was gone. It was not showing the harddrive at all. I dont understand why this happen. My best idea in what happen is that when i unpluged the back up power unit it surged it and sum what erased something important causing it to not be able to read the harddrive. :confused: .

    If anyone can offer any help it would be helpful!!:D

    This is why power switches exist.
