I agree with the rest about a data recovery company. There are a lot of them out there. I have used http://www.alandata.com/ a few times in the past and so far they have always been able to get that data a needed back.

Good luck

Is this dropped Seagate hard disk recognized on other computers? In fact, in your cases, as long as this hard disk is still readable on other computer, you often can easily download external drive data recovery software to scan this drive and see whether these original drive files can be retrieved manually, like:

But, if the data recovery software still makes no difference, merely ask some professional data recovery experts for help.
In the future, no matter what happens, always make drive data backups well on different drives.

That reads like it could be a HDD motor failure. In that case, you will need to pay a data recovery company to have any data on it recovered.

Sorry to tell you that.

Unfortunately it appears that the internals are shot
if the funny noise is a clicking sound or squeal then the repair is a new hd unit as they are generally not repairable.

How do I get operating instructions for Seagate STBX1000101

Windows 8/8.1 does not use the traditional Windows backup utililty that was found in earlier Windows releases. Instead, a tool is built in called File History. There are several ways to get to this, here's one of the ways:

Tap your Windows key to bring up the Start screen. Start typing the words File History and click on File History Settings.

Here's a link to a page on Microsoft's site to help you with this process:

Sounds like driver problem to me. Re install the driver by using installation disc, or if you have lost your CD, than use this Driver Update Software to update. I hope this helped.

Seagate expansion portable drive won't post makes clicking noise

Very likely the head is no longer aligned, and can no read the disc correctly. This is physical damage that can not be repaired. There are specialist, but at premium prices.

I have a Lenovo H430 Desktop & i Got a Seagate 3Tb Internal Hard Drive & i can't get the computer to detect the hard drive & everything i have tried & even Seagate tried nothing wo

hi..there...

why your lenovo H430 Desktop cannot detect your internal Hard Drive Seagate 3 TB ..because your Lenovo only support maximum 2TB Internal Hard Drive..

so the best thing to solve your problem is replace your hard drive and use only maximum 2 TB for your internal hard drive..

that's will make your lenovo works again

Seagate's DiscWizard, Extended Capacity Manager didn't recognize a hard disc with MBR partition style larger than 2TB when trying to maximize the capacity of the 3TB Seagate ST32000641AS drive...

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager lets your operating system support large size discs with MBR partition style, so then you are able to use the space beyond 2 TB: this free space will be recognized as a separate disc, and will be accessible by your operating systems and applications as if it was a regular physical hard disc.

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager wizard will display all hard discs larger than 2 TB (unallocated or with MBR partition style). You can see, which disc space is recognized and allocated by Windows - this space is called Native Capacity in the wizard.

The space beyond 2 TB is displayed as Extended Capacity Zone. You can enable Extended Capacity Discs, and once it is done, this space will be visible by the operating system and ready for disc management operations.

Click Allocate space to see the possible disc space allocation in the next step.

After clicking Apply changes now button, the Extended Capacity Discs will be emulated on your physical disc. In case your physical disc is larger than 4 TB and the host operating system does not support a GPT partition layout, there will be several Extended Capacity Discs.

Note these Extended Capacity Discs are not bootable, and most properties will be the same as a physical disc's.

After allocating the space, you may temporary switch off Extended Capacity Discs by clicking the corresponding option. This will make Extended Capacity Discs invisible for Windows Disc Management tools, though the disc space will remain allocated.

To disable Extended Capacity Discs, click Remove partitions from Extended Capacity Zone and then click Apply changes now button in the next step: these discs will be removed from your system, and as a result - the disc space beyond 2 TB will become inaccessible

Dropped Seagate 1.5 TB hard drive. Makes a noise

Probably not. A hard drive is very delicate and if dropped the lasers could have broken or even the discs.
