FreeAgent Drive Manager.app does not see drive-Mac

I can see the FreeAgent Drive on the desktop. But the drive manager.app does not see the drive on one of my imacs. (It *does* work on my other identical imac with my second FreeAgent Drive!). Anyone know how to fix this?? Many thanks.

Turned out to be an easy one!! The Seagate tech had me reinstall the drive manager, and it then worked. But he did recommend using Time Machine, which I have, over their software!

Windows xp will not recognise the seagate freeagent desktop drive


Assuming you have tried other usb ports and had no change,remove the usb connection, then go back into device manager and select the usb controller, right click and select delete as this will erase any input driver the usb port recognises. Restart the pc and then the controller should be reinstalled automatically as it sounds as though the controller has become corrupt for some reason. Go back into device manager and check there are no exclamation marks, reconnect the drive and see if it's recognised.

I deleted some folders on my 1TB FreeAgent External Drive for a Mac to free space so that it will have ample space to continue a backup. Even after deleting the files, available space was the same. What...


You probably deleted folders which were not that big in size. You can run some apps that will visualize the drive usage like JDiskReport (http://www.jgoodies.com/freeware/jdiskreport/) or SpaceMonger (http://www.sixty-five.cc/sm/). This way it will be easy for you to see what folders are taking the bulk of the space in your drive. You said you are using a Mac so use JDiskReport app which works on both Mac and PC (SpaceMonger is only for PC).

Try this:

1. Turn off the power supply to the hard drive.
2. Turn off your PC/laptop.
3. Connect the hard drive to the PC/laptop.
4. Turn on both devices.

It worked with mine.


You could also try installing Seagate Manager which can check for errors on the drive.

Turn off computer.  Unplug hard drive from computer port.  Turn on.  uninstall from Add/Remove Hardware in Control Panel.  Reboot computer.  Plug in external hard drive.  Verify Full System functionality in Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device manager.  If nothing is expanded all IS functional.
