Drive is dead completely after 1 month light use. I was transferring medical information between devices. No physical damage, just started clicking after a file transfer. I could not even back up my files, the drive is completely inaccessible. Seagate Data Recovery Services wanted 600 dollars to recover the data from the 1 month old, warranty covered hard drive.I had many drives in the past, both portable and internal. Had drive failures, paid for data recovery, never argued. This drive is not even 20 % used and dead after a month. I don't want a replacement because I cannot trust this company. Not because the drive failed but because how they not stand behind their product.I believe if your drive fails physically after a month that means defective workmanship and it should be the manufacturer's duty to stand behind their product and at least examine the drive and if there is no sign of misuse, then a 1 month month old drive's data should be recovered free of charge to the customer. As a business owner, the is what I do and that is what I expect. Sorry Seagate, that is the last drive I buy from you and I don't want your unreliable replacement.
Hi, I am writing a feedback with hope that someone will see this article and will not buy this device. We bought 2 disks Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive, Platinum (STEH2000100) hoping that it will store information without problems, but after 4 months this device began to make noises and became invisible to the system.We took it out and gave it to the official service for diagnostics. Experts from the service opened hermetically sealed block and saw serious damages to the disk (shown at the picture), and told us it is impossible to restore information. HDD heads caused severe damages. It’s really a disaster (. No one was able restore this disk, as they said to many donors (the same disks) are needed, but no one guaranteed successful restoration of data from the disk. Information, collected while 4 months of operation, was lost and doesn’t exist anymore.There are lots of feedback when people tell that disk operated for two weeks or even less. It would be not so bad, as I collected information for 4 months and I can’t return it now.There are disks of Transcend and WD, companies and when they are out of operation it is really easy to restore information. You will pay for that, but you will restore information without problems. And Transcend and WD disks were issued during 3-5 years, and issuing of this one needed only 4 months.When I bought these disks in August there were no negative reviews regarding operation of this device. There were only nice reports and ratings, which after this case is really hard to believe in. I ordered the disks in the USA with the help of Amazon.com, paid for delivery and hoped that goods from the USA are of high quality and are tested comparing to Ukrainian products. But, unfortunately, the quality of the goods is just the same. We really thank Seagate for this, for cheap Chinese disk, which is not even tested and checked, for paid reviews (with good ratings, but absurd for future). For today I understand that I will never buy anything from this company (not from enterprise series) and will never recommend this company to my colleagues or friends.
Worked for 3 days. A complete nightmare. Lost almost 15,000 photos I transferred to the drive last night. My son was coming over today setup a cloud backup account for me, and then I wake up to find the drive is dead. Absolutely devastated. Now the drive just beeps and makes various whirling noises and wont be recognized by any computer. Seems like this is a common story in the reviews. Buy at your own risk, and whatever you do, never have valuable documents only on this drive for any moment of time. Being a brand new hard-drive, I thought I could move files to it and then back up to the cloud the next day, and that mistake has cost me dearly.
