Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1 TB Portable HDD

Anyone have experience with this?

Or more specifically, this thing failing? Like... light blinking, a whizzing, soft beeping sound that you basically know means this thing is fucked... as well as the fact that it crashes Windows whenever I try to access a file in it.

I've already given up trying to use it, I think it'll just make it worse, so I'm waiting to call Seagate on Tuesday (since they taking Monday off....), but I'm just looking for a bit of reassurance that I'll get my shit restored/backed up. I'm still on warranty so I can get a replacement, I'm just worried about the stuff I have on it.

I have it, it works great, you probably broke yours.

I know that it's broken...

Mine worked just fine for like, 7 months until it just randomly stopped working, slowed down, and makes whizzing and spinning noises.

Just few weeks ago one like this broke for a friend of mine. Was beeping and not spinning up when he showed it to me.

probably a broken usb connector or board, seems like it's a common thing with lots of external HDDs

open it up, get the HDD out (usually a standard SATA drive) and connect it to your computer through another adapter or case

It would not be "beeping" or blinking any lights if there was a problem with the USB 3 cable. But trying another cable should not hurt. Even a USB 2 micro cable should work.

I don't want to open it in case I break it any further..

If it's not completely broken, then, well I mean, I've ran the SeaTools tests on it and it's failed a lot of the important diagnostics tests, saying it's pretty much broken... so I'm just gunna call on tuesday and see about getting it replaced. They have a recovery option so I should be able to hopefully get my files recovered

>>52464078
I only imagine it's spinning.. like if there's a fan or somethign inside of it I hear running.
>>
>>52464200
I doubt that they will put much effort in recovering files

but good luck
>>
>>52464252
Why wouldn't they? :x

I know people like to think corporations are lazy or whatever, but I don't see why they wouldn't just even try...
>>
>>52464289
data recovery is, depending on the particular issue, very time consuming and therefore expensive
just sending a new blank drive is much cheaper
>>
>>52464355
:// Yeah but it doesn't seem very professional... and I'm almost sure that I'll have to pay for the data recovery anyways. I don't think that's included in the warranty.
