Manufacturer Response:
Hello Tiffany G,

We regret to hear about your experience with the Expansion drive. We’re certainly sorry you’ve encountered this circumstance. However, we’re hoping to lend a helping hand and offer some assistance which may resolve the issue. From what we understand, the drive died.

In your situation, we would suggest the following:
Try connecting the drive to another port on the computer (ensure it’s connected to a port directly).
You may also try using a different cable.
Verify if the drive detects within Disk Management (on PC) or Disk Utility (on Mac).
Try connecting the drive to another computer to see how it reacts.

Performing these steps can rule out a problem with the drive itself. There can be situations where the problem is related to other things which can affect the drive. Please follow the troubleshooting steps in the link below:

If the issue persists, please create a case with our technical support team so we can further investigate and explore available options:

Kind regards,
Seagate Support

Bought this on 11/9/2012 still running great! 5/14/2019 9:07:05 AM

Pros: -At the time it was a lot of storage.
-Reliable. Almost 7 years and still going strong!

Cons: -Now my system alone has 5TB so its not as useful to me for backups. Not a con for people that don't have that first world problem.

Started off fine, and then disaster. 12/19/2018 5:49:00 PM

Pros: Good size, quiet, sleek.

Cons: Lasted about 4 years, before it crashed. I bought 3 of these drives for Home Media storage. All three died in short order of one another. A month or two separated each hard drive crashing. Thankfully I was able to get 2 of them to recover to seperate drives, but one of them is being pretty difficult. I've got (HAD!) about 6-7 TB's of movies total on the three drives, so it is a chore having to recover them. 1 fail I could understand. 2 fails was maybe just misfortune. But 3 in close succession, tells me it is a product quality issue. I have another drive that is still in use after 12 years.

Overall Review: I would steer clear of these drives! If you own one, and you are fortunate to hit 4 years with it, I'd look to back it up to another drive.

so far, so good (so far so bad) 10/23/2017 6:29:42 PM

Pros: - good capacity to cost ratio
- very quick over USB 3 ... 80-100 mB/s transfer speeds from internal drives to this drive

Cons: - it uses what appears to be a proprietary connector for the USB. Minus an egg.
- I can now tell you that long-term reliability is an oxymoron. Mine died after like 2 years.

Overall Review: - I haven't had it very long so I can't tell you about its long-term reliability
- It's a Seagate, so I'm a little nervous.
- Seriously, though... 3tb makes this a great deal

lasted less than 3 years ... 4/11/2017 1:49:27 PM

Pros: - lots of space for the money
- reasonably fast

Cons: - died in less than 3 years
- poor warranty (I was shocked that the drive was already out of warranty, what happened to 5 years?)

Overall Review: - I believe that this generation of products were heavily affected by manufacturing issues (fires, floods, etc.) in the far east around the time I purchased, so I cannot recommend the 3TB models just in case, however it appears that newer models are more reliable and so I will try again with a 5TB or larger unit as Seagate continue to be price / performance leaders
- very disappointed that Seagate no longer backs their drives for 5 years

Unacceptable 10/4/2016 11:31:55 PM

Pros: It was easy to set up with the help of gparted. Inocious black box that houses the drive is neither appealing or detracting from it's overall visual aesthetics.

Cons: It performed very well for the first year and a half of intermittent use, then the errors began.. I've had too many random errors to count .Both reading and writing regardless of file size. I feel that it didn't perform as well as other Seagate drives I've used over the years..

Overall Review: Would not recommend this product
