dead hard drive revived

9.17: mis.cyb/usb.enclosure/dead drive needs deconnect:
. the backup drive is sputtering instead of on?
this is interesting because the reason I had stopped it,
was that the lightening was so fierce,
I was afraid to have my backup drive connected;
but here's another case where
being turned off is the end! ...
I think it had circuitry zapped that starts trouble,
but that trouble wouldn't show up until
unit was turned off
(I was using a UPS but didn't test it myself).
. anyway,
maybe the enclosure is zapped;
so, try a new drive: the enclosure is fine?
maybe it was the connections;
so, try the old drive again:
ok! my backup drive is humming .
