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

Seagate is a company that manufactures external hard drives.

These hard drives can be used to house large files or even to backup an entire hard drive.


When your Seagate external hard drive is not working properly, you might ready to send it into the company for repair.


Before you send it away, you can troubleshoot the problem and potentially save yourself a lot of time and grief.


Look over the power cable going from the wall outlet to the back of the Seagate hard drive. Make sure that there aren't any breaks or tears in the electrical wiring.

If there are breaks, replace the power cord.


Look over the power cable and make sure that it is plugged into the wall outlet in your home as well as plugged into the back of the hard drive.


Plug the power cable directly into the wall outlet or into a surge protector.

Do not plug the power cable into an extension cord.


Seagate Data Cable

How do I get everything from my external hard drive onto my Mac and then completely clear the ehd?


The problem you really face is a lack of space on the Mac. The movement of files from the Seagate to the Mac is easy. Plug in the drive and open it, then select the items you want to transfer from the Seagate and drag them to the location on the Mac where you want to store them. Job Done. When the files have all been transferred you just need to "Format" the external drive.

How do I work on my data on the Seagate FreeAgent 2TB GoFlex Desktop USB 2.0 Hard Drive as my computer memory is at capacity. I want to be able to use my external hard drive as an extension of my computer...


Assuming you are using a Windows operating system, you can just plug it into your computer's USB ports, and the computer will recognise it as another hard drive.

Instructions:
Double-click on 'My Computer' and take note of what drive letters are there (C:, D:, etc.) before you plug in the Seagate Freeagent.
Plug in the Seagate Freeagent. You'll see the new drive, likely E: or F: (depending on what is already there before you plugged in the Seagate Freeagent)
Double-click on the new drive, and it'll open up and you'll see the files stored on that drive. You can drag and drop files and save to this drive like any other folder on your computer.

How do you back up files


Connect the hard drive to your PC with the USB cable, go to the 'my computer' page and click on the Seagate drive's icon to open it. Minimise the Seagate window and open the folder on your PC where the files are, then re-open the Seagate window, and then reduce it with the double square icon at top right of the page. Then you can just 'drag and drop' the files to copy the files straight onto the drive, or first make a folder on the Seagate to put them in. To copy them back to your PC, reverse the process. Hope this helps!

Itunes messed up my external hardrive


I doubt that iTunes really moved/reorganized files on your computer.

iTunest may have created its own "Table Of Contents", presenting a "view" of all your files.

Open "My Computer" and open your external hard-drive.
The files should be in "your" order.

Open "My Documents". Open "My Music".
The files should be in "your" order.


If iTunes really did "reorganize" your files, there's no way to "go back", because "Windows System Restore" does not automatically created time-stamped backups of your 'My Documents' folder (nor of any external disk-drive -- where would it put that much data???).

Seagate FreeAgent Desk - "Drive cannot be modified"


I went into Disc Utility and partitioned the whole drive for Mac OSX. After that was done, I was able to write to the drive and copy over files.

Can't open files copied to my Seagate Free Agent Go


Ok, install Office onto your laptop and see how it goes. Don't be too panic striken Microsft in general allow one copy of the same program to be running on a desktop and a laptop at the same time on the same license.
It's a home/work thing, Laptop goes to work, desktop stays at home and you can't be using them both right =)
