I'm not expert but try freeze therapy. I did it in on mine and it did not work but I hear it does rarely. Basically all you do is wrap the harddrive in a plastic bag tightly to prevent any form of moister entering, leave it in for about two days and plug it back it. It's said that sometimes if the lense is shaken out of place the cold would make the metal go back to original placing. This means you plug the harddrive in while still frozen, just something try before throwing it away or replacing it.

SOURCE: I cannot see my free agent external drive

Thanks for your responses...

I've pretty much decided that it must be a hardware problem within the harddrive itself...Can anyone lead me in the right direction to maybe take out the harddrive to put into another external shell in order to hopefully recover my data? Again I'm using a Seagate Freeagent Desktop 500GB external harddrive.

SOURCE: Knocked over Seagate 500GB FA Pro Makes Beep Noise/Can't Connect

it sounds like the disc (inside the hard drive casing) has become jammed or what is known as "stickation". the best way to unstick the disc is usually another sharp blow. the best way to do this is to remove the drive from the external casing and, while holding it by one side, strike the other side downward onto a hard surface like a wood desk. do not strike it on metal or cement as you may cause more damage. make sure the surface is softer than the drive casing. it sounds extreme but it has worked for me on several occasions.

is damaged my friend. Hard drives are very, very delicate pieces of equipment. The disk is paper thin and any sudden jarring, especially dropping it creates a warp in the drive. Unplug it to prevent further damage. Don't worry in many cases you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

How do i fix an external hard drive (seagate freeagent) that makes a beeping sound and is not recognized by my system ?


Look inside your P.C. 1st to check SATA data connection type.
eSATA is a different connection from SATA so you might need an eSATA data lead if you follow the guide in the link, not sure if it just external connections only and plain SATA connection inside.
Google image 'eSATA' data lead/cable and you will see the difference between the eSATA and SATA connection if you don't already know.

It sounds almost like 2 things are happening,

1. The drive itself it going out or the board inside that is connected to the drive is bad.

2. or the drive is not getting enough power through the USB ports (or too much maybe?)

I have only encountered the beeping issue on my free agent 160GB when it was not getting enough power to spin up the platters.

If you still have warranty on it. I would HIGHLY recommend you call western digital about it.

Seagate 250G running out of space


creat incremental backup rather than complete fresh backup.
empty trash can.
either way, it's possible the backup drive uses up more than working drive especially adding/deleting files alot between backup's.
