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

I have the Maxtor OneTouch 4 (750GB) external drive. Somehow I've lost my software that came with this drive. How can I purchase just the disc I need?


Hello,

No need to purchase the software, it's available free from the Seagate website. Seagate recently bought out/merged with Maxtor and has taken over support. Got to:

http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/

Ckick on Maxtor External Drives then click on One Touch 4 Family.

Click on download Software link below the name of the version you have One Touch 4/Mini/Plus and the software will download. You can just install it or you can save a copy to burn to disk and then intall from the saved copy.

Hope this helps FixYa,

I need the software to get into my Maxtor one touch 4 plus


Hello,

all of the documentation and downloads for this product are now available via Seagate, as Maxtor was acquired. They are still supporting all the drives Maxtor produced for the normal periods of time.

Seagate 750GB usb HDD asks to format,when opening by double click


The disk is either damaged or the USB interface is damaged.
1) You could try opening the external case and connect the disk to your computer directly (Using IDE/S-ATA cables)
2) Format the HD and use data recovery software/service.
