Seagate 2Tb External Hard Drive

Life like Opossum

Recommended Posts

I have a friend of mine whose Seagate 2TB external hard drive will get dropped after being plugged in for a couple days and will not re connect unless he uninstalls the associated USB driver, turns off the hard drive, plugs it back in and powers it up.

We have tried several options including changing the power settings to keep all usb ports powered. Can anyone else think of anything that could resolve this problem?

It seems that this is a USB powered drive? From my experience external drives powered by usb are destined to fail. I would reccomend always getting external drives that are powered by their own power supply. You could probably buy a different enclosure that has ac/dc power and just swap the drive into the new enclosure.
