SOURCE: how do i find the files that have been saved on my

Hi there babyface,

You just have to plugin your Seagate FreeAgent to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. Once plugged in power the seagate on and your computer should pop up a notification, usually in the lower right corner of your computer screen, saying that it has detected a new USB device. Next, right click your Windows Start button and choose Explore to Open Windows Explorer. Once the window opens, look for the drive letter associated with your Seagate FreeAgent under "My Computer" or "Computer" located on the left pane. Click for that drive to show the contents on the right side of the window. Thats it!

If you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Hi, I bought a Seagate

Did you reformat the FreeAgent drive when you backed up the Mac? If you use Time Machine or other backup software for the Mac, you had to reformat the drive. If you want the PC to read the disc, it must be formatted in a FAT32 or NTFS file system. The Mac OS formats discs in the HFS+ (extended hard drive format) system.

Unfortunately, if you reformat the disc to a Windows compatible format, you will lose your current backup. The drive will be as a large media transfer disc but not for the backup images. This site, http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html , has information on splitting the hard drive into two partitions, one HFS+ and one FAT32. Then you could have your backup on one part of the GoFlex and still transfer files from the Mac to the PC and vice versa.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: can you use a Seagate 500GB FreeAgent GoFlex

Yes, but because it's a hard disk and has low transfer speeds it will actually slow down the pc instead of making it work faster. Ready boost is designed to be used only with memory sticks of the latest generation.

SOURCE: I have dropped a Seagate

hello vyseman15,
hard disc drives need to be handled carefully, they can only handle a limited rough usage. especially dropping while it is working is very dangerous, in most cases the head will "scratch" (damage) the discs surface which make the device afterwards useless.
sorry to say there is nearly no chance to make it work again. there are some companies who can rescue some of the data on it, but they are expensive anyway.
regards

Try the drive on another computer. If it is recognized there, you might be looking at a larger issue on your Mac. If it doesn't, the GoFlex's drive or boards may have failed.

Goflex home. How do I restore my original Ip Address


http://www.seagate.com/docs/pdf/en-US/whitepaper/ug-goflex-home-us.pdf

That is the user guide - if you can log into the device, then you can go into the settings and change the IP. Best to do so from Windows, I can't do much from Mac.

I suggest you contact Seagate support via www.seagate.com. It may take a few days for them to respond. If they haven't answered after say 3 days, repeat the request. Please have the model number and serial number of your disk to hand. You need to more specific about the description and name of your product than you have been here - I believe from my readings that Seagate's GoFlex range is huge. Also your computer's operating system and possibly the manufacturer and model of your computer. How are you connecting the drive to your computer (ie which interface are you using) ? On the form describe the issue in as detail as possible. (copy and paste what you have written here). You could also try browsing the Seagate website for ages or joining the Seagate community, and searching that, or posting your problem there.
If you have a GoFlex net, this might be informative:
http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/214495en
If relevant see section 7 of this
http://www.seagate.com/docs/pdf/en-US/whitepaper/ug-goflex-home-us.pdf

ALWAYS keep BACKUPs of data that you cannot afford to lose, in case of events like this.

Here is the link to the pdf for your Go flex.
http://www.seagate.com/files/staticfiles/support/docs/goflex/goflex-net-user-guide-en-us.pdf

This is an excerpt from the file concerning NOT using the pogoplug...

Accessing GoFlex Net Without Using the Pogoplug Service (Windows)
You can access the drives connected to GoFlex Net without using the Pogoplug Web
interface. Follow these steps to set up local network access.
1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Network or right-click My Network Places >
Explore.
An Explorer window opens showing all computers on your network.
2. Locate and then double-click the computer name associated with GoFlex Net.
NOTE: Your GoFlex Net name starts with the letters "FADS" followed by the last six
alphanumeric characters of its MAC address. This 12 digit address, preceded by "MAC:",
is printed on the label on the bottom of GoFlex Net.
You can now access each drive connected to GoFlex Net. Access is regulated by the file
sharing permissions you set using the Pogoplug service.

Hope this helps...

I have the exact same drive. If off-the-shelf cables are not working (which is odd) I would suggest buying a USB 3.0 extender. This will extend it about 3 feet. You can purchase them for <$5 online! Let me know if this helped out any.
