How to recove Seagate external hard drive data?


Probably, the new operating system cannot recognize your Seagate external hard drive. You can connect the Seagate external hard drive to another computer to copy data to another device. If the problem still exists, you might need to perform data recovery. You can free download the data recovery software: http://www.icare-recovery.com/seagate-recovery/seagate-external-cannot-be-recognized.html

My mac wont read my external


Connect it to another computer, to see if the Seagate device works at all.

If not, then disassemble the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Is the manufacturer's warranty still valid? If so, exercise the warranty, to get a replacement, at minimal cost to you.

Just bought Seagate 500mb external desktop drive. I am using it in conjuction with Paragon Back up. The idea was to delete most of the files from my Internal hard disc but will I lose these transferred...


If you backup all the files to the external device,
and then delete them from your computer,
and then the external device "dies", what will you do, other than cry?

The whole point of "backup" is to have a SECOND copy of your files; not to keep your important files in only ONE location.

External hard drive can not be read by the computer


The hard drive was originally formatted for a PC and I was using it with Mac products. I had to delete all the information on the hard drive so that I could reformat the external hard drive to work with my Macbook Pro.
