    Conflict Windows 10 and Seagate External Drive


    I am at my wits end. Windows 10 will not recognize my Seagate Expansion External Drive. I need to obtain some data files on the exyernal drive, and have tried every remedy I could find online, without success. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    :)

    Seagate external drive

    Hi Paul,

    One of the possible reasons why your Seagate external drive is not working properly is due to a corrupted storage device. To help us determine the appropriate troubleshooting steps, we would like to ask the following questions:

    • Were you able to connect this external drive to another computer?
    • Have you made any recent changes before you encountered this issue?
    • Have you tried to unplug and use another USB port available?
    • What is the error message that you received?

    We look forward to your response.

  3. External Seagate Drive not appearing after Creators Update

    We appreciate the feedback, Pete. Getting in touch with Seagate support is one of your options. They may have recent or updated drivers for your external hard drive. In the meantime, since the hard drive is detected again when you unplug and replug it, we
    suggest that you try changing the drive letter and its path and see if it addresses the issue. Follow the steps below:

    • Right-click the Windows key and click Computer Management.
    • Under Storage, click Disk Management.
    • Find your Seagate External Hard Drive, right-click it and select
      Change Drive Letter and Paths
      .
    • Click on Change and select the letter for the drive.
    • Click OK, close all windows, then restart your computer.

    Should the issue persists, then we suggest sharing your experience with us through our Feedback Hub. To access the Feedback Hub, follow the steps below:

    • Click the Windows key.
    • Look for Feedback Hub, then click it.
    • In the left pane, click Feedback.
    Let us know should you need further help.

    Regards.

    Regards.

    seagate external drive

    I have a Freeagent Goflex 1TB external drive by Seagate, windows 10, and an ACER all-in-one PC with a 1TB hard drive. What do I need to do to get Win10 to see the external drive? I use it for backup and the backup part of the control panel says the Seagate
    is disconnected.
