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...
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...
The hard drive suddenly stopped working after 22 days out of the box, and only 4 uses of image file transfers. The drive makes about a dozen very faint beeps when connected, and that's about it. No computer will recognize it. This product was clearly made to look pretty. Functionality was placed on the back burner. The hard drive was not abused in any way.
That being said, I bought two of these at the same time - one in silver also (if that makes any difference at all). That one is working fine under heavy daily use, but I do not feel confident about the important data stored on it after the gold one failing. Before the failure, these would have gotten 5-Stars, but after less than a month, and probably less than 10 minutes of use, if it fails to do it's only job it does not get any sort of recommendation from me.
I would consider this a "buy at your own risk" product.
