  • This is my third drive to fail

    When it worked, the drive was very slow to access for either read or write. Spin speed was only 5400 rpm, not 7200. This is the third one of these drives to fail with the 'click of death'! Though this one lasted longer than the other two (Four months). I should've learnt my lesson Will not be buying Seagate again, but i'm currently stuck with another replacement for the failed unit. Buy something else, or do not use to save crucial data on

  • Beware of the disc format

    I have 4 of the 2TB version all brought at the same time. Three are formated with 512 block size and the 4th with 4096. The only problem is that if you use Windows backup it does not work with 4096 block size. It appears the block size is fixed at manufacture so yuo cannot resize or reformat this. The solution is that you have to use a different backup programme that you might need to buy. Also some drives are 5400 & some 7200 RPM but Seagate will not tell you which is which - it appears they use whatever drive is available to manufacture these.
