    Strangely enough, the Seagate Expansion 1TB External harddisk I just bought about a month ago and the problem was when I tried to access the File History and I surprised that the directory was corrupted and unreadable. There are no bad sectors on my External Harddisk. Any way to fix this?

  2. Cannot Access New Seagate 2TB Expansion USB 3.0 Drive

    i just purchased a new seagate 2tb expansion usb 3.0 drive and no matter what i do i can not access it. when i first received it i plugged it in, open it once it showed up in pc, tried to copy files to it and was told to no disk in drive d, checked properties and they said 0 used 0 available. i opened partition wizard, wiped the drive, formatted, assigned name "universal two, and letter n and now when i click on it i get "please insert a disk into the drive". i think the below images below are pretty much self-explanatory. even thought disk management and partition wizard say it's drive n i still get "there is no disk in drive d. please try again. i'm completely out of ideas, please any ideas and or suggestions. thanks

  3. File History can't find attached drive - Windows 10

    Suvarna,

    I appreciate the reply. Unfortunately, taking these steps did not fix the problem. Although nothing otherwise seems to be wrong with the attached hard drive (it's a brand-new 1TB Seagate Expansion portable drive), Windows doesn't seem to recognize it for
    the purposes of creating a file history. It recognized my HP portable drive just fine, but that isn't as big and isn't the drive I want to use.
