Its the best harddrive i have ever owned. quick transfer, ultra portable, 3 years warranty and a brilliant manufacturer!!

I know it's £15 more than you want to spend but i think its worth every single penny!

Try to get the old drive replaced by the people from whom you bought it.

Remember: Any manufacturer's guarantee is in ADDITION to your rights under law.

As far as the law goes, your contract is with your supplier, not Freecom and the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (aas amended) says that anything you buy should be:

[LIST]
[*]As described
[*]Fit for purpose
[*]Reasonably durable
[/LIST]

If it isn't, you have a right to a repair or replacement.

The right to having something done, can last up to six years, but as time goes by, you're more likely to be able to insist on pnly a repair, I guiess.

Whatever, a drive should have lasted a longer than a few months and legally it's DOWN TO YOUR SUPPLIER, not the maker.

If your supplier doesn't co-operate, involve the Citizens Advice Bureau, local Trading Standards and maybe Which? Legal helpline (About a tenner for 3 months)
