Question about Seagate FreeAgent (ST305004FDA1E1-RK) 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have a 500 GB Seagate Freeagent Pro Ext Hard Drive (USB). The hard drive is appearing in My Computer. But the Icon is not the one that should be appearing. When I click on the drive, the drive does not open immediately. An error message comes like ''H:/ Application not found''. But i am able to open and access the files using explore option. Pl. suggest a solution so that the drive works as before.

    Thank you amruthls. As you said, The antivirus must have removed the infected file. When I restarted the computer, the drive was recognized with the proper icon and now I am able to open the drive with a double click on it. Now As I recall it, a virus was found in the pen drive that I used at the same time and was promptly removed by the anti-virus. Then the problem occurred with the Freeagent Pro. I got a little panicky and posted it on Fixya. If I tried to restart the PC immediately, the problem would have been solved. Anyway, you have accurately diagnosed the problem. Hats-off! Keep it up!!

The autorun file in the drive has been modified. A virus should have done that and in turn your anitvirus must have found and removed the virus. Hence windows is now trying to find the missing application. You can revert this by either removing the autorun file in the root folder, or by modifying it to your liking. If you need further assistance, comment back.
