Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 80 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Only some are missing? If you can access the drive and see or download some of the files, it probably means the other files are not there. I have found it is easy to move files when transferring from one device to the other, when I meant to copy them. Perhaps this is what happened. If the drive was bad, or some other mechanical issue, I doubt you would be able to access any files.

What has happened is that your file system on the hard drive became corrupt becasue windows had not updated the MFT on the drive. THe MFT is a table of contents regarding whats on your drive.
What happened is similar to someone cutting out a few pages of the table of contents in a book that has a lot of pages.
Windows tried to fix this stupid programming method by asking people to always use the "safely remove hardware" button in the taskbar to force it to update the MFT.
In this case yur a victim of the Hard Discs MFT not updating properly probably because software was accessing the drive when it was disconnected from the machine.
You need to run chkdsk to have it rebuild your MFT.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265 <-- How to perform Check disk
*NOTE: Remember to use the drive letter that the USB External is on.. Not just type CHKDSK. It will default to drive C to scan for errors. ex: c:\chkdsk g: (where g is the drive your external usb is)
If you get an error like "CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.. see my notes below.
Beware that it will take a LONG TIME to perform this procedure.
If this doesn't fix it.. contact a data recovery specialist.. It's worth the cost. There are two types. Simple and Advanced.
Simple= recovering files your deleted with the delete button (fairly easy with the right software)
Advanced = recovering files from a hard disk crash or file system corruption. (Not easy and very time consuming)

Under the Gear looking icon located on each window, there will be a delte option. Just click what you would like to delete, click the icon and press delete.
Let me know if this works.

Try doing flea power & the power cycle.
1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.
And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.
Restart the system & check.
2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.
Restart the system.
If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this :
Check this before you try to edit the registry values.
Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.
And delete all references to the external hard drive.
And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB
and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.
After restarting the system, the drive should be detected & configured automatically by the computer.
Disclaimer : I will not be held responsible for anything that happens to your computer as a result of following my guide. Use this guide at your own discretion and risk.
Also if you still need driver:
This is the best way to download the drivers of all your devices which are connected to the system for free.
You can download the Driver Magician from this link :
Download the reg key from this link :
then doule click & select ok.
Run the program and select update drivers, it will list the list of pdated drivers.
Select the drivers and select download drivers.
If it does not download just select the driver you need and at the bottom you would see a link,
Just copy that link and download from your browser or download manager, I use orbit downloader.
Live, Love, Laugh.
