USB-Disk of 1000 GB suddenly fell into Read Only mode
Hi group, what I have to report today seems a bit strange:
A while ago I bought a Verbatim USB-Disk of one terabyte (model 53016 1TB - originally with a FAT-filesystem) ... In order to make it linux compatible I thought I did a "mkfs" on it creating an "ext2" filesystem.
Then everything was fine until an amount of approximately 17 GB of stored data was reached. Then suddenly I could only access the disk in Read - only mode ... which did not help any more for backup-purposes. Moreover some files were destroyed ... (not all, but about 5 %). I managed to make a backup onto another disk of the remaining data ...
Anybody knows about that problem
