Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Data Storage I have a Seagate Free Agent Pro. I use it to store photos and other data for work. I have it connected to a laptop and I want to delete the older photos from the laptop to free up space. However, when I try and delete the photos from the laptop and then my Seagate updates it deletes the photos from the external drive too. If it helps I store the photos in my documents.

Make sure you are storing them in both places. I have a hunch that even though you are storing them in the my documents folder it is the one on the external drive that is storing them & when you are trying to delete the computer is reading them as stored to the external & is deleting from there. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

HOW TO PARTITION FREE AGENT 500 HARD DISK. i HAVE NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE AND WOULD LIKE TO ENSURE EXISTING DATA IN FREE AGENT REMAINS INTACT. pLEASE ADVISE


First, copy all of the data from the drive to another as a backup.

Now the drive already has a partition or you would not be able to store data on it. Therefore, you could only be speaking about dividing it into multiple partitions.

Therefore you delete the exisiting partition and then create smaller partitions. In Windows you will be limited to 4-partitions.

I hope this helps.

You better check with the Seagate people. This seems to be a problem with the casing. And since you're under warranty, you can get a replacement.

Hi,
It looks like its just the ac-adapter that is dead.
I would contact the store you bought the harddrive, and ask if they just can send you a new ac-adapter.
Btw backup means that you have saved your data 2 places.

Try connecting it to another computer. If you can see your data then back it up etc.
After you have recovered your data connect it to your computer, from Disk Manager, remove the partition, recreate it again and then format the drive, hopefully your external drive will be operational again.
There is a possibility that the hard disk has died and you will have lost your data. If you are desparate, hard drive data recovery companies charge an arm and a leg to recover data from dead drives.
