Seagate Expansion 3TB data recovery / not showing up anymore.

Q: Seagate Expansion 3TB data recovery / not showing up anymore.

I took my 3Tb out of it's external case and put it into my computer and it didn't show up so I put it back and it looked like my data was gone!

I tried a couple programs to get it back because they said the drive was empty or something.

I gave up and now I'm trying to get everything back again but the drive won't show up in windows 8 but my other one days and I'm using the same cords and everything.

It also boots up.

Hey, wondering if someone can help

Bought my new external hard drive and put a load of my files onto it with no problem at all, but today, on the second time of using it, I plugged it in and it seems to be working because the green light is on and the icon to eject is there, but its not showing in My Computer.

I've seen people saying about the Disk Management and changing the name or path.... so when I open up that window, the disk is not named, when I right click on it, everything is greyed out apart from Help and Delete Volume options.

I've tried uninstalling the drive under the Device Manager and re-installing it again. but that doesn't work either.

I have tried this on my 2 laptops, PB and HP, and it is exactly the same on both. Both run windows 7 64-bit.

Hope Someone is able to help me out a bit, Thanks Lynne.

Try right clicking on computer in the start menu, and select manage. In the window that opens after giving admin approval, selece disk management in the left column. It should show every hard drive connected to your computer. In the lower portion of the window, look for your Seagate, right click it and select change drive letter or path, in the next window click add and choosed a drive letter. Click OK. after the drive letter is assigned, you will be able to see the drive in explorer.

Hi,

Can anyone help? I brought a seagate Expansion Drive less than a month ago to store all my music and pictures on. It worked fine until a few days ago when it started clicking and now under my computer it is showing as a local disk.

I'm not great with computers and have no idea what to do! I have tried running sea tools from the sea gate web site and all the tests come back fine! However, I still can't get the expansion drive to work or let me access any of my music etc. I just want to get my music back!!!!

Can anyone help???

A:Seagate expansion hard drive not showing on computers

Sounds like the drive has failed as you had been getting warning signs with the I/O errors and now it has stopped working. There is a possibility that it is just the circuitry in the housing so you may be able to get it going again with a new housing. You could first test the drive by removing it from the housing and hooking it up to the internal connections of a desktop PC or by using a USB adapter.

Hi there,

I'm trying to recover date from my st94019a 30g laptop HD. I've got a IDE/SATA to usb kit however this doesn't fit any of the adapters that have come with the kit.

What interface does the st94019a have? I've read around a few webpages and I'm seeing PATA, EIDE, UTA...I'm lost.

Any help would be really appreciated...

I have a 3g usb seagate expansion drive that is about 3 mths old. It has frequently disappeared from my computer. I would have to reboot and disconnect the power from the drive to get it to come back.

Is this a sign of a bad drive or just a glitch that some kind of a driver update will solve.

In the same system I have a 6g WD drive that works flawless.

Hello again, Datman I have onlya few suggestions.
1. download and install the latest chipset drivers from your motherboards/manufacturers web site
2. Run Seagate's diagnostic tool, SeaTools.
3. See if tis tutorial will help. USB Driver - General Fix for Problems

It is fairly new and I have about 500gb on it so far and I don't want to lose any of my data because most of it is my university files.

I don't know why this is happening and I also can't even change the drive letter, I really don't know much about computers but this forum seems to help people, hope someone can help me Please.

Ameq, Welcome to SevenForums. Sorry you're having issue with you external drive. When you connect the drive to your computer have you gone into Disk Management to see if the disk was showing up there? Does this drive require an external wall wart type power source or possibly need to have dual usb ports to power it?

A:Seagate Expansion Desktop strange failure

Nothing strange there and that behavior is pretty common; external drives fail all the time and fail in various ways.

Best way to determine if its the hard drive or just the enclosure is to take it apart and try the drive by itself either by plugging it directly into a computer or with the use of a SATA to USB adapter. If you do not have access to either one you will need to find a friend who does or take it to local computer repair shop. It's impossible to say if the data can be recovered easily until you determine where the failure is. Even if the actual hard drive has failed there's always data recovery companies that can do it in most cases but that'll cost you.

It's an external hard drive 1Tb and goes with a separate cord power adapter. Here is how i'm using it : I keep the USB port plugged in, when i use it i plug in the adapter to power it up, when i'm done I unplug the cord power adapter only. I use it once a week or 2 weeks, only for backup and store data. Is that good or I should plug the cord power in all the time ? THanks GUys

I have a 320GB Seagate Expansion Drive which worked fine for several months, but in the last week or so the only way I could get it to register on my computer was to push the USB plug into the port on the unit very firmly. This sometimes caused the drive to work for a while, but then later ceased to work when I let go. So, I decided to tape it place very tightly. Wrong move! The whole USB port came loose from the mother board! Is it possible to have this fixed? I have a lot of stuff on the drive I don't want to lose!!!
 

A:USB port loose from Seagate Expansion Drive

I'm not entirely clear on what you are describing. Are you calling an external hard drive and "expansion drive" or is the "expansion drive" a drive physically mounted in a chassis? An external hard drive doesn't have a motherboard.

If the USB port came loose on an external drive enclosure adapter you could remove the drive from the present enclosure and install it in a new enclosure if the external drive is an IDE drive or a standard SATA drive.

Posting a picture may help decipher exactly what you are describing.

ive tried going into disk management and it doesnt show up there either.

ive also downloaded the sea tools after googling the problem but nothing shows up there.

i recently transfered everything from a computer i sold over to the hard drive. i wanted to transfer it over to a second backup hard drive today but with no luck.

on he last use of the hard drive i did disconnect with the remove hardware safely option.

I have a perplexing problem. I have a Seagate 2TB external drive that when I plug it into my USB3 port it appears in Explorer and sometimes I can even navigate through some of its folders. However after 2-5 minutes it just disappears and a message comes up "USB Not recognized".
When I insert it into a USB2 port I cannot see anything. Whilst it is visible I can see it in my Disk Management but as soon as it disconnects itself this disappears. I have tried to format it but it does not stay connected for long enough!
I am running Windows 10. The same problem seems to also occur on a windows 8 machine.

I got my new Seagate 2 TB Expansion Drive and made the first image of my new laptop (running Win 10 anniversary build) using Macrium Reflect. All went well, and I closed Macrium, then attempted to eject the external drive from the notification area. I consistently got an error message saying the drive could not be ejected and until the program using it was closed. Task Manager confirmed no application was running. Device Manager could not remove the drive, either. Shutting down the computer and then removing the drive was no problem, but surely this shouldn't be necessary. Any advice would be welcome!

I think i may have double clicked the dvd rw drive e: too early and it started to format the disk? What do i do?

I want to back up my desktop Dell Win XP hard drive personal data to a Seagate FreeAgent Go 320GB external drive. I would like to know, When I backup data this time, will it overwrite the data from a previous file backup? Will it "append"(?) or add to(?) the first data backup or will I loose that data?

In other words, does the Seagate FreeAgent Backup overwrite the current data with the new data?

I tried many searches without results. (as well as different ways of asking the same question )
Thanks for your time.

Greetings. I have a Seagate FreeAgent Desk external hard drive.

I used to be able to plug it into my laptop, and voila it automatically backed up all my files - and only those that were added or changed.

I gave my laptop a fresh load of Windows 7, and now I can't find the driver disk (if I had one) for the FreeAgent. In any event, now I have to back up manually, and click and paste entire folders (rather than just files that had changed). And I'll be darned if I can find a solution on Seagate's website.

I'd like to get back to the happy place where the FreeAgent detects new or changed files on my laptop, and automatically backs those up.

Suggestions please?

Probably a simple one but im stumped.

Have a SSDIII drive with OS installed via a USB3 4 port PCIe expansion card with SATAIII ports.

Master OS drive is installed and working fine on the drive however is not showing up in BIOS for autoboot, so I have to manually press ESC to enter boot menu and select the SSD drive to boot which works fine.

Have checked all the BIOS advanced boot up devices can see all hard drives, USB drives, CDROMs and external USB drives but not the relevant SATAIII drive. I am presuming its due to the fact its on an expansion card and have not found a solution please help.

Hi

I have bought a 2TB Seagate SSHD to replace my old 500GB Western Digital.

The Seagate came with Acronis, but Acronis failed to see my new disk.

I went into Computer > Manage > Disk Management but it wasn't showing there either.

I went into the BIOS and both disks show in the BIOS. The BIOS is uptodate, the MB is a Gigabyte H61 S2PV

I tried to clone the disks from the CD by using Seagate Disk Wizard but it fails to see the Seagate HDD.

I tried my Paragon Restore Disk to Backup and Restore from one to the other from the CD, but Paragon can not detect the Seagate HDD.

I tried the Windows 7 Restore Disk but Diskpart can only detect my old 500GB WD HDD.

What should I try next?

Thank you for your help with this.

Its always handy if you fill in your system specs in your profile then everyone will know exactly what they are dealing with

When you enter into the disk management MMC console (start, control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management), does it show any trace of the disk?

This happens frequently with flash drives as well, drives that are formatted for mac FIRST usually have a hard time being used with Windows machines and formatted by Windows machines. My recommendation: plug it back into your GFs mac, use disk utility to format the drive to FAT32. Then move the drive back over to your PC and check your results.

A:seagate usb external hdd - showing as 'unknown device'

Welcome to the Se7en Forums! FrEnZyUK

One suggestion given when buying any new external hard drive or flash drive often when simply being used as a storage device is to first reformat the factory Fat volume to NTFS for making it readily available. In 7 the support for Fat and exFat has returned allowing you to simply go into the Disk Management tool and assign a new drive letter for the drive. This will initialize the drive as part of the process making it available again.

If you have only a small amount of files and data on the drive presently you could simply elect to backup them up and reformat to NTFS while in the Disk Management at the same time as you custom assign a new drive letter. Windows will then remember the new letter that replaces the temp letter assigned when working.

With usb not so much eSata drives that are plugged in and unplugged often that will even be more of a help once a reformat is performed in automatically being reinstalled by Windows upon plugging the drive back in if unplugged at all.

Welcome to TSG:
Those HP Pavillion Slimline's are nice.
Have you tried going into safe mode and see if you can highlight it and select properties?
If you can - check the "Security" tab and see if you need to take ownership of the drive.
Are you using XP - Vista - or 7 ?

is there a problem with the external hardrive?
 

A:Seagate FreeAgent external hard drive not showing up on Windows?

It is likely formatted as Mac OS Extended (journaled), HFS+. Windows can't natively read that.

"I try to take the files out that I put on a windows 7 PC" is a confusing statement. If you want to read the files on the drive from 7, you can't without a 3rd party tool. If you are just wanting to put stuff on there from the PC and don't care about the Mac backup, then just format the drive. Do that through Disk Management in the Admin Tools control panel.

My 320 GB Seagate external hard drive is detected but not showing up in my computer. What should I do?

In cmd> diskpart> list volume it does not show up. (screenshot attached)

In Device Manager it gets detected. (screenshot attached)

In disk management it shows up as 'unallocated'. If I initialize it, will I lose all data on the drive? It had 4 partitions. (screenshot attached)

In My Computer also it does not show up. (screenshot attached)
Even BIOS recognizes it.

What to do? I don't want to lose any data on the drive. If I initialize it in device manager will I lose data?

I was installing window XP on my computer, usually I remove the external drive but this time I did not. The external drive was shown as 4 drives in partition manager during installation. But the installation failed. The next time I was installing windows again, the external drive was shown as 1 single unknown or unrecognized drive. I'm not sure if it was unknown or unrecognized. I'm sure I didn't format it. So what I need to do now? I don't want to lose any data.

Yes, if you initialize it you will 'lose' everything. You will want to try something like [email protected] Recovery or maybe Easeus Partition Recovery.

After that i tried to convert the data into JSON Object by using GSON library. I am not able to produce the Json Tree data. I am facing so many problems. Can anyone please explain me how to convert the Data available in that table to Json tree Data. If json data is ready i can use alloy ui tree javascript to display the tree view in my Jsp.

It says it cant find, the files are there:

The following folders are empty and cannot be read or added to:

Ceedo

This is one suggestion off of WD. (the .exe file should be there)
The second is to download the 30 day trial copy of software. Not being real familar with this particular software or drive it's the best shot I can take. Jazz

A:recover data from corrupted or bad sectors seagate portable hdd

If the disk is really damaged, this may be a tough task. But you can try to recover the data with an live Linux CD or my universal data recovery stick. Linux is not as picky as Windows and maybe it would work.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium installed on my HP Pavillion Laptop and now when I go into the Pictures folder the icons for the folders and pictures don't show up as thumbnails anymore. They just show as blank with the file name below the empty space. It appears that sometimes some thumbnail icons for the pictures load but more often than not they are all blank.

I recently installed some windows updates but have since removed them with no result. I also tried searching Google and wasn't able to find a solution.\

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hello,
A little while ago the libraries on my Windows 8 computer wouldn't open. I was told I needed to delete then restore default libraries.. which worked fine. After I did this though my DLNA on the TV stopped showing any of my files.
I can find my server and it connects fine but when I go into any folder for music/video/pictures it says there are no files. They have all worked fine previous to me having to restore my libraries on my computer.
I've tried searching online and can't find any issues on this. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

I have had Java disabled on my Firefox, since it was recommended to do so. (that was over a year ago or so)  I got a notice to update Java Runtime Environment.  I did it.  I usually go back and make sure Java still shows disabled on Firefox.  It always has been.  Now I do not see anything in plug ins, under add on manager tab, for Java.  I can call up Java Control Panel.  The box is unticked for Mozilla, but it is showing ticked for IE.  Some places won't be fully seen or usable without Java.  I also have No Script on my Firefox.  Sometimes it is a pain, but it has hopefully helped me.  Any ideas on this?

Hi, I have Lenovo Y700 gaming laptop which I purchased 5 months back. My drive D and E (which equals to 900 GB) doesn't show up anymore. It used to happen before but after a restart it would be ok so I ignored it lately. Today while accessing those drives I got the error message "The request failed due to fatal device hardware error". I restarted my PC and now those drives doesn't appear anymore. ?I looked for solutions over the internet and most of them led me to renaming unallocated partition in Disk Management. But I don't have an unallocated partition as well!?Intel Rapid Storage Technology prompts that I should supress the problem of SATA disk (932 GB). Doing that doesn't change anything either!! Please help. It would be highly appreciated.

I unlocked/activated all 4 cores and Everest Ultimate stopped showing CPU temperatures for the 4 cores. Until now I have been able to see all temps. With stock hs/f its running hotter than I'd like at 46 at idle and up to 53 after gaming for a while. Mobo temp is always around 29 - 34 max. Temps are degree celsius. Any ideas on how to correct this issue with Everest Ultimate? I've tried everything I know to no avail. Any ideas or fixes would be greatly appreciated. Also any ideas on cooling system without spending the earth on aftermarket hs/f would also be appreciated. cheers.

I have 2TB hard drive with partitions, one have windows installed on and the other is BitLocker encrypted for data storage. I dont know what happend to my pc while I was at work but my pc was restarted when I got home and now my computer only shows one diskdrive (C, where windows is installed). BitLocked encrypted drive D does not show. It does show when I open disk management but it has no drive letter. See screenshot. What are my options? Please dont tell me that my 1765GB of encrypted data is lost :S

A:BitLocker Encrypted drive not showing anymore

My first bet would be to make a Ubuntu Live cd (Or even better a forensics Helix boot cd but thats probably over the top!), boot into that and see if you are able to mount the partition.. If you can then I would backup the data somewhere if possible... I think im right in saying that you can still decrypt the encrypted data if you copy it elsewhere but I haven't had much experience of bitlocker, only truecrypt.

My personal opinion is not to do anything within Windows as if it doesn't see the data or partition it may start harming your data.... Good to know my 4 years of Forensic Computing isnt going to waste... I think the above is a good start.

Hopefully others out there will have some more / easier suggestions

After installing a new theme, I noticed later on that all the icons on the taskbar, explorer, and the desktop were missing. The programs all work fine, with the title showing, but explorer is very laggy and it's incredibly hard to navigate through my picture folder without thumbnails.

And for some reason, I cannot open the start menu from the taskbar.

I tried multiple system restores, and that did not fix the problem.

Thanks for answering, it's very much appreciated.

Hello and welcome,

You've done multiple system restores and get the same theme? Or what happens?

Click on start, and on the search bar type in cmd, once it appears right-click it and select run as administrator, upon the prompt type in sfc /scannow, it will request to scan on restart, do so.

Give an update please.

Hi,

Before you write more data or attempt to read data from the drive through Windows, I would suggest using a Live CD like SysRescueCD to boot from and access the HDD.

A:data extractors / sql header [Hard Drive data recovery]

I don't know where this thread properly belongs -- but I suspect the question may be too esoteric for most here.

Since it involves data recovery from a hard drive I'm going to move it to Hardware, I think "all other software" is not likely to have anyone with this type of experience.

A:Minitool Power Data Recovery or Runtime Get Data Back, which

Hi

Both are good programs and i would recommend purchasing both ( if you can afford ). Both has it's own pros and cons.
"GetDataBack" is good at virtual reconstruction of damage/unrecognizable file systems but i personally found it weak at recovering image files. It recovers images but most of them seems to be corrupted in my testings. Also you need to purchase seperate versions for FAT and NTFS ( GetDataBack simple is garbage ).

On the other hand, "Power data Recovery" works with both FAT and NTFS and it is better at recovering image files. Another proven tools is "R-Studio" which has quiet good reputation among DR professionals. It's user interface is not newbie friendly but has lot's of options which no other tools offers.

I booted up my Win 7 computer today and ChkDsk said my Ex HDD may have been corrupted and proceeded to delete some files. Those were some very important files - how can I get them back? (Video and Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 files)

I prefer free methods on this - I know I can buy software to do this, but I currently don't have the money. Or a very cheap method, if nothing else.

It's ironic that today was the day I was going to back up this drive.

i was wondering if the data (music, files, pictures, etc etc) is still recoverable...if so, what are the necessary steps that i should take to recover it...my friend sent me OnTrack 6.3 EasyRecovery Pro and i went out and bought Search and Recover 4...should i do a clean format on the drive and then run a data recovery software or should i run the software with the drive being 5% formatted...

Mount the disk to a USB flash drive using the tool from here: Microsoft Store: Download Manager Help

Couldn?t find the post I had put before..
My Qosmio E series (I don?t know where to find which one it is) had a recovery partition as said in the title.. on the HD and I recovered it to factory settings and so now it seems it doesn?t have a recovery partition. How would I get the recovery partition back?

2. Problem Description: I tried to install iTunes. Then all these things started happening because of iTunes and QuickTime not installing.. windows installer gets a deep error.. which then prevents me from uninstalling anything related to iTunes and QuickTime and then windows update gets a code 80070424...

At first it disabled my DVD drive but I fixed that.. what can I do to get it back to running normal and able to install iTunes..
This problem was happening over a 3 day span
My computer is on a network with one other computer.

Thanks

>Couldn?t find the post I had put before..
Just click in this thread on your account name and you will see the list of all created threads.

I read your other posting and you are pretty confusing with all this. On Toshiba notebooks there is no recovery partition and recovery image is saved on second partition in folder called ?HDDRecovery?. Do not change anything there and you will be able to use HDD recovery installation anytime you want using F8 and repair my computer option.

iTunes and QuickTime are not Toshiba applications and if you have some problems with it you should contact Apple and their support. They have designed and tested own product and they should be able to help you.
