Hi Ryan,

I decided that retrieving my data was more important that the seagate warranty and i was not prepared to send the free agent overseas with the data still on it so i removed the hard drive from the freeagent case (case now stuffed) and put the hard drive in an "off the self" hard drive enclosure". All my data was there. It is still working fine. Two big lessons for me - moving files from my lap top to the external drive is not back up and external hard drives can be fragile, best not move them around like a library book. From my low tech view the circuit board on the freeagents is flawed.

Regards,

TMV NZ

Need a power cable


A user on the Seagate forums indicates that his uses a 12V 2A DC power supply. I would suggest, however, that you remove the hard drive from that enclosure and place the drive either inside your PC or inside another enclosure.

If all else fails, contact Seagate: 1-800-SEAGATE

Let me know if this helps!
