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.

I have window server 2003 OS and 500 GB free agent desktop USB hard disk is not showing in my computer. So how can i rectify it?


I just finished a Chat exchange with Seagate Tech support. MS Server OS's are not supported for FreeAgent devices.

It appears that whatever drivers exist in the XP install that recognize the USB device connection are not the same in the MS Server environment.

I plan to check the USB device drivers from both systems and see if the XP USB device drivers will work on Server 2003.

Cannot power on Seagate Freeagent Desk external hard drive


Hi,

Hope this has only been used for backups, and not as a primary storage. The best way to trouble shoot something like this is to purchase a USB/SATA adapter. You will need to dissemble the device and take out the hard drive. Connect it to the USB/SATA adapter to see if the drive spins up and can be seen by the PC. This will let you know if the drive is OK and whether the fault is related to the external bay electrices or the drive itself.

Good luck, you can get the USB/SATA devices quite cheap off of eBay.

Cheers,
Ripface.

Tryi8ng to install portable 120GB hard drive (seagate)


If your USB ports do not supply enough power (older computers) then the drive may fail to show up in My Computer.
The Seagate should have a special Y cable. There are two USB connectors on one end that must both plug into your computer - one for data and power - the other for power only. The other end of the cable has the mini USB which plugs into the Seagate.
