Hey guys. I have an answer on how to fix the Trekstor Datastation "Removable Disk" problem.
I also own a Trekstor Datastation 500GB and had the same problem even though it worked for several months then all of a sudden when I tried to hook it up to another computer, it stopped working. It would recognize the USB connection but you could not read the drive as it would say "Removable Disk".
In "Device Manager" it recognizes the drive as Sundata USB2SATA. But what it really should be is "WDC WD50 00AAVS-32ZTB0 USB Device" or something similar to that. For those that are wondering, yes, the hard drive is a Western Digital Hard Drive. Western Digital Caviar to be exact.
Solution: You need to open the cover to the hard drive and reconnect the hard drive to the connector on the board. It's that simple!
It is very loose and this model is not well designed so it can easily come off if you accidentally knock over your hard drive or move it to another location. The hard drive is held in place by screws on a holder where there is room for the screws to slide if the screws are not tight enough.
You'll need a T10 screwdriver bit to remove the cover and a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the hard drive.
NOTE: Doing this will probably voids your warranty but trust me, it works and it's really easy and quick to do. Took me 15 minutes.

SOURCE: Wiping WD hard drive
I suggest that you use Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN")application to completely Esare the Hard Drive. It is a freeware application.
Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.

Thanks for all the info, it really helps us help you when we have the full picture.
The Seagate drive you are seeing is the hard drive inside the Lacie Enclosure. The fact it is showing up in disk management is a good sign for getting your files back. The fact that it shows as empty with no format type listed means that either the partition was deleted or damaged. This would be akin to loosing the microfishe in your local library. All the data is likely still on the drive but windows has no way of knowing what is there or where it is.
In either case the data can generally be recovered by a pro with speciallized software. In some cases you can do this yourself with similiar, less expensive software but I always warn Askers that this software requires significant knowledge to operate and you cannot recover the files back to the same drive therefor you must have another drive with at least double the space free of the data on the drive to do it yourself.
Let me know which approach would suit you better, if you choose the do it yourself method I can suggest software for <$100 that you can try but it carries inherent risk of damaging the data if you make any mistakes. f you choose to have a pro do this for you reply with your Country, State and City and I will recommend someone for you. For this type of failure recovery varries but usually runs $150-$500 depending on the volume of data you have.
In either case DO NOT format the drive or attempt to use it for anything in the mean time as every operation that writes to the drive runs the risk of overwriting your data and rendering it unretrievable.
Hope this Helps FixYa,

Well, data recovery service is pretty expensive. In your case the MOST effective way is to try some so-called data recovery software. See if you can grab some of your precious data back.
First of ALL - Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)
Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem! Remember - Always make multi-Backups of your precious data!

HDD Unlock Wizard is a window based utility.
It works as a new life for your locked hard disks, as it is competent to unlock almost all hard disks of major brands available in market.
Its proprietary unlocking algorithms can remove any unknown HDD password and you do not required to give any hint of password as it is not working as a normal password cracker tool.
Removal of a HDD password is a slow process and total time required to remove HDD password is depending on the size of the hard disk and type of hard disk.
A small 2.5" notebook hard disk takes more time as compared to normal Desktop hard disk.
Presently it supports IDE and SATA hard disks.
