Thanks everyone. It was a long shot.
I have 7 hard drives.
Three have failed, and only the ones that have photos on them. Two failed
after < 2 months.
The other 4 are used way more but are much older and never failed.
I was trying to figure out what the 3 had in common, so I thought it worth
asking just in case.
I managed to fix this one, the other 2 are permed.
