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

Does not allow transfer of files or pictures


Plug the external hard drive into your laptop or desktop computer.

Most external hard drives do this through a cable connecting the hard drive to the USB outlet on a computer.


Plug your external hard drive into a wall outlet if it receives power from an AC adapter rather than your computer.


Click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, and open the external hard drive.

It will be located under the USB connecting drive, which is labeled with a letter ranging from "E:" to "K:".


Open the folder on your external hard drive where you would like to save the photographs.

usually in my documents my pictures or if you want to save them to a specific spot so as not get them mixed up.


Create a folder if one is not present right click in my documents select new folder and name it lets say my pics 1


Move this window to the bottom right corner of your screen to be used in future steps.


Open the folder on your home computer where the files are being stored that you wish to transfer to the external hard drive.


These may be on the desktop, in "My Documents" or elsewhere in your computer.

If you are unsure where they are located, you can always search for them by file name by going to "Start" then "Search."


Right-click on the photo file, and select "Cut."


Click on the window showing your hard drive files to bring it into use on the screen.

Right-click on the white space in the window where you would like to transfer the files, and select "Paste."


Your files have now been deleted from their original location and transferred to your external hard drive in the folder you selected


hope this helps

My computer dosen't turn on. How can I transfer the data from the hard drive to an external hard drive


Open the computer and remove the hard drive install it into another computer as a slave drive and read from it. If yo don`t know how to do that then just take the drive to a computer parts store and purchase the necessary cables so that you can attach it to your present computer USB port or have them transfer the files for you for a small fee.

Question about transferring files from computer hard drive.


Is your other drive an external or an internal drive??? If external then attach it to the USB port and see it as an additional drive in My Computer. Then you can use it as any other drive.
If an internal drive then you will have to purchase an adapter that can take this drive and get connected to the PC/laptop to through the USB port. Again visible on My Computer as additional drive and can be used such.

Cannot transfer any files from my computer to my external hard


Did you install the drivers for the drive? Is it recognised in Windows as a device? If not, try reconnecting and Windows should prompt you to install the drivers, Assuming the drive is recognised by WIndows, then are a few causes for not transferring data. I've attached a link to Western Digital's FAQ regarding Data Transfer problems with your drive....

http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php?p_sid=nCt181pj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=1017&p_li=&p_page=1&p_new_search=1&p_search_type=answers.search_nl&p_sort_by=&p_search_text=transferring+data

Several page of possible solutions are listed above.... however, you can refine the search if it is only happening when running specific apps or @ specific times. The answer you seek is located in this link. If you can provide more details on the type of file(s) you are trying to transfer and how, I'll refine the solution for you....
