My friend and i just bought this hard drive and are both missing about 50 gigs from it. is this normal or should we get it exchanged?

That sounds abnormal but here is how to see. Plug the disk into computer and make sure that it registers. In windows right click on my computer or computer in windows 7 and select manage then select disk management. This will show you the hard drive and it partitions. You will be able to see the partitioned drive here make sure that it is occupying the whole disk. If not format the disk by right clicking the drive and selecting format i would go with ntfs file system. It is not uncommon for the disk to be smaller but not 50 gig. if the format doesn't fix it take it back.

My analysis is that your drive might encountered a virus on it. Normally, the file types that were disappeared are the files that was severely infected to it. I suggest to back up your files by transferring the files from your external drive to another drive (could be a CPU internal hard drive or another external hard drive) so that it will not damage the other files. You might as well restart the pc after doing it so..

I cannot see my 'Seagate Expansion 640 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive' listed in 'My Computer' as an option. I need to backup files and cannot drag them to the external hard drive since it does...

Hello, if the drive is new it may just need to be formatted, if it's an existing drive it may have a failed partition.

If it's new, connect it to the computer, right-click on your My Computer or Computer icon and left-click manage. When the management console opens left-click Disk Management, then scroll through the right panel and find your 640GB drive. As long as it's there and unallocated you can right click on the unallocated space and select format. Follow the wizard using the default settings. When you're finished it should show up in My Computer.

If this is an existing drive and has failed, proceed to the management console and see if it shows up, if it does make note of all information show in the right panel and either way report back for further assistance by reply to this response.

Hope this helps FixYa,
