Hello Harry,

We regret to hear about your experience with the Seagate Expansion Desktop HDD. We’re sorry you’ve encountered this circumstance. However, we’re hoping to lend a helping hand and offer some assistance which may help resolve the issue. From what we understand, the drive burnt out after almost a year of use and you’re unsure if a recovery is possible because right now it burns out any 12v transformer.

In your situation I would suggest using the link below to create a case with the technical support team and speak to an agent directly. This would enable us to investigate the situation and explore the available options.

Was a great device until... 1/15/2019 7:57:02 PM

Pros: Worked well with no problems and easy to use. Very quiet.

Cons: Failed a little over a year after purchase. Seagate has abysmal support, recovery would cost around $600. Support never responded to my case.

Overall Review: As long as the product doesn't fail, no problem. If you don't wanna take that chance, find another company.

COMPLETE trash 12/14/2018 10:53:38 AM

Pros: ~175 read/write speeds but ONLY with the default format. reformat and youll drop to 40-80

Cons: reformattting the drive, as was need for me to do some installing of OS's, results in you ONLY having access to 2Tb of the total, which is closer to 2.5 than it is to 3Tb.

Overall Review: dont bother. seagates "help" on reformatting their drives gives nothing. i have 1 partition of ~1/3 of my hard drive that is permanently set in a way that i cannot actually partition it for use.

Dear jonathan g.

We're sorry to read about your experience, but we'd like to help. You can follow the steps here to format the drive:

https://www.seagate.com/gb/en/support/kb/how-to-format-your-hard-drive-220151en/

On the other hand, this article explains why a drive capacity may show different than what you imagined. Simply put, decimal and binary translates to the same amount of storage capacity:

Dear after very limited use 11/5/2018 8:11:04 PM

Pros: None. If the drive dies and you lose all your data, what's the point?

Cons: Don't throw your money away on this garbage. There is absolutely NOTHING here worth a single penny.

Overall Review: Never again will I buy a platter drive for backup data storage. SSDs are the only way to go, and never will I buy another Seagate product.

Dear Anonymous,

We certainly are sorry to hear about the experience you've faced with the drive. Hard drives are mechanical devices and can occasionally fail without warning or regard to brand. This is why it is important to have critical data backed up to a secondary storage medium. While it doesn't help make you feel any better in the current situation, we offered up that information to help you better prepare in the future. We would suggest you contact the vendor for an exchange; otherwise, please contact our Support team for direct assistance via this link:
