SeaTools SeaTools - Quick diagnostic tool that checks freeagent 500gb health of your drive. DiscWizard Version: The zero fill took 17 hours. Its all a bit confusing.

All diagnostics came up ok, as well as smart readouts afterwards. All the horrors with the firmware affair — which is another issue, which though should be fixed now, on my drive included newer firmware — and general outcry has gotten to me, although its not rational to try to draw relevant figures of internet forums. It is just frustrating. Also in a way I dont feel its comforting that you would have to turn off the lights which you can do through the freeagent 500gb now or turn off sleep-mode entirely to make it work. Maybe it elevates the root issue completely, but its not exactly ideal or good for ones paranoia to need to tweak something so uncertain as in what is causing it. Its a major inconvenience having to unplug it. Ahh, I dont know. Updating my situation.

All my data is in there. Before when the Seagate software was still on it I got the delayed write errors when trying to open the files, and references to the mfrt, probably from the indexing or such as I didnt write anything to it. Ok I guess its not all that odd, reading Tony lyons comments. After googling like freeagent 500gb madman on everything Seagate related as far as problems goes its easy to subconsciously start not taking things at face value after a while, or that one thing may not apply for oneself.

My first thought doing a smart check on the drive was how hot it ran maxed out at 60 and 45 idlingand it was even my first possible explanation for this. This also seemed to freeagent 500gb spontaneousy after a while, not during load, or as much as it has been with the format, no data yet luckily. I have probably come off as a mad babbling manic person not reading through the thread properly, eheh, but I will end on this to make up for it:. I can hear the external drive clicking and making noises that I have never heard a good HD make…. After reading almost complaints about the same thing, I take no chances.

First I had a problem with the included Memeo autobackup which is horrible backup software. So I just continued using the FreeAgent with LapLink Gold backup software about monthly until Nov when the FreeAgent would freeagent 500gb light up nor would it show up as a drive. Drive works fine and my data freeagent 500gb are all there.


Checking the drive on a Win XP restart showed no errors. I have freeagent 500gb seagate gb. I open the case quite brutally and took this light off. It seems to help.

I talked to someone from their online support. I found this site back last Summer when my Seagate Freeagent GB drive began acting up and giving errors just as described here. Replacement drive is now showing some signs of impending death — though with a bit less warning that the first the first would randomly not show up on the desktop, and I would get failed back-ups that could be restarted and complete for a couple of weeks before it just quit. This one has been fine until today — when freeagent 500gb disappeared off the desktop.

I unplugged the drive for a while and plugged it freeagent 500gb in and have had Disk Utility running on it for the last 40 minutes what should have taken freeagent 500gb minutes. Not a good sign. Assuming death is the diagnosis — will be giving Seagate a piece of my mind- again.

How could a company that has been making freeagent 500gb as long as Seagate be so completely clueless and uncaring about their customers? I am pretty fed up.
