My seagate 1Tb is actin strange.. when i try to explore it, it shows it's empty but when i check it through properties.. i have all my files hidden to it.. all my files got invisible.. please help..


Win 7 - open the drive on the computer, click the "organize" drop down menu on the left - go to "folder and search options" - select the second tab (view) - select "show hidden files, folder, and drives" - Hit apply then ok - all of your files should be visible now - select all files by hitting "CTRl" + "A" - right click on one of the files and select properties - uncheck hidden - when/if another window opens select the best option for you - now all your folders should be visible again - you can repeat the first few steps to make your hidden files invisible again if you wish.

How do i find the files that have been saved on my seagate freeagant goflex desk 2TB drive


Hi there babyface,

You just have to plugin your Seagate FreeAgent to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. Once plugged in power the seagate on and your computer should pop up a notification, usually in the lower right corner of your computer screen, saying that it has detected a new USB device. Next, right click your Windows Start button and choose Explore to Open Windows Explorer. Once the window opens, look for the drive letter associated with your Seagate FreeAgent under "My Computer" or "Computer" located on the left pane. Click for that drive to show the contents on the right side of the window. Thats it!

If you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

So my terabyte (external) is showing as a local disk hen i explore...it is saying "corrupt or unreadable" and when i go to properties it is showing all 0 of 0 is used...am i stuck?


Hello Pmtarq, hi, there are two possible bad part, first your hard drive is really bad, you need to reformat your drive, all data will be lost. (this is the common solution) or second the device electronics is bad, you can not do anything if the device fails, all you can do is salvage the hard drive. (this is a long shot, but possible)

Install the seagate manager on a different computer and decrypt the files there first then move it back to your computer using the basic copy/cut and paste.

Seagate Free Agent 1.5TB doesn't encrypt


I was fumbling around with this as well. I found a manual on my external drive itself. I had to read through it carefully before i saw a small note.

Note: After you open your Encryption folder on the first computer and user account with which
you use Seagate Manager, it will be saved on that computer so that will never need to
enter it again. When opening your Encryption folder from another computer or user
account, however, you will need to enter your password.

I have yet to test it by creating another user account, then attempting to access the files. I am confident that this is the answer.

Free agent doesnt encrypt


I Posted a solution to this prob but i don't see it anymore. Your ext drive is Encrypting your folder. It just knows you're the one using it. If I took it and plugged it in to my computer, it would recognize my user name as t0mthab0mb and prompt me for the password. Try it. Create a different user account on your computer, then try to access the encryption folder from the new account.

Forgotten seagate freeagent pro encryption password


Hi dollarbilll,


You can ask for your password hint to help you remember your password, as long as you
originally created a password hint.
If you still can't remember your password, the only way to regain access to your Seagate
Secure drive is to KeyErase it. This will erase ALL of your files and allow you to reset your
password.
Once you KeyErase your Seagate Secure drive, there is no way to recover your files (even by
using a data recovery service). Only do this as a last resort!

The one other thing you may try is to copy the folder if you can get to it, someplace else on another drive and go to properties and see if you can change the ownership of the folder and gain access.

Otherwise, keep trying to remember.
