Broken by JoPereira Broken by JoPereira
A better title would be "broken piece of shit" which failed me with just few months of use.

No engie, you can't fix it. No one can. It's broken, like my faith in reliable hardware.

costs 200-300 for HDD repair services depending on how much space it has.

I have personally had HORRID experiences with Seagate's hard drives. my external drives I got from them barely lasted a month. if you want reliable hard drives, get a Toshiba. my external drive from Toshiba has been whacked, dropped, thrown once, and generally misused, but it still works just as good as the day I got it out of the box.

So, you had no backups of the data? If it's just a storage drive you should probably make a habit of keeping a second hard drive that you keep an image of that disk on.

If you have multiple hard drives, get one that can fit them all.

The moral of the story: redundancy and backups.

I slightly feel your pain...except that instead of my HDD, It's my bloody CPU that's currently fried :/ brilliant huh?
AlexKass84 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2011
WD is more reliable this days.
Have myself 4 raptors, 5 black caviars and 4 green. In RAID mostly. No fails with year of 24/7 running.
And man, everything is fixable.

Nice idea of a pic.

Anyway, luck with your hardware.

WD is where it's at bro!

1tb too... I hope ya had backups... >(
Japamala Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I've never had any luck with seagates.

Western Digital, on the other hand, survived through things that hard-drives were not meant to survive, like the entire computer falling from a height of 3 feet.
roelu86 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010
I just got my Seagate 1TB replaced (free of charge) because my previous one crashed. That one actually looks exactly like mine - Barracuda 7200.12 :D.

But overall, Seagate still sucks :D

If only she could fix it for you. Then my computer wouldn't be so crappy
Abazaba Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2010
Am I the ONLY one who is of the opinion that Seagate is better than Western Digital. Over my computer lifetime. I have bought many a drive. All the seagate ones are working like a charm. Any time I have gotten a Western Digital drive it was crap. I have a 1.5tb drive and it works great. I plan on getting a second soon. As they drop in price I want to do a nice Raid 5 with a half dozen 1.5tb drives and be set for a while. So I don't know Hardware like Hard Drives are iffy. It is not about the company but WHERE it was made. Some HDs have defects, some manufacturers have more HDs with defects. Some manufacturers simply have ONE shitty factory that turns out crap and it is a roll of the dice if it will work.

Bottom line: Check your S.M.A.R.T. regularly and if it is important back it up weekly. If it is really important use off site back-ups. Mozy, and Carbonite, are good choices. Mozy gives you a free 2gb, to boot.

no you are not i had one WD blow up on me once!
sabbakyunogarra Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2010
Seagates tend to have basic issues. I've never lost a Western Digital drive, and if you're worried, try getting a few and set up a slick raid 0 or raid 5
Carsino Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2010
That the first Seagate i seen fail. i still have one after 5 years nothing bad yet
Albinobeau3 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2010

Should have gotten a Maxtor hard drive
greatshoyru Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2010
Never had a problem with Seagates myself... But Western Digital are the really reliable things you're looking for.
DammittLC Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2010
Don't let these guys bash your impression of Seagate. I have drives that are going strong for years from Seagate!! But like all hardware they are subject to failure. With HDDs its not a matter of IF they will fail but WHEN! Be prepared for the inevitable and backup regularly!!


I ran your drives info and it is STILL under SEAGATES warranty. Return the drive and get a new one (if it is indeed faulty) from Seagate.

Midori-Boushi Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2010
Maybe it's just a freak accidental thing. I have the same HDD I think and mine has been operating well for the better part of 2 years now. Hope you can still avail of the warranty.
