Hello, does anyone know how to backup an external harddrive without a power supply? is there an adaptor available like an icy box? i have an icy box but it only works for internal hd. In particular, i need to get the data from a seagate backup plus drive. The power cable is broken and importing seems impossible. I can try to ask a local electrician if the cable can be repaired or not. The problem with the adaptor is that it is North American and not available for sale in Germany. I assume that the inner workings of a Seagate Backup plus are actual plates, which means that i have no idea how to copy the data without a power supply.
