  2. Windows 10 not detecting my seagate 1 TB external hard disk

    Hi,

    Thank you for coming back to us with the status.

    To understand the issue better, I would like to know what exactly happen when you try to open the file?

    Let’s try simple steps and check if this helps. I would recommend you to connect the external hard disk on different computer and check if you are able to open the files.

    I also, suggest you to go to the Disk Management and check if the drive are detecting on the system.

    Press Windows + R and type diskmgmt.msc on the box and hit
    Enter.

    Method 1.

    For now, I suggest you to go to device manager and update Seagate driver and check.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager.


    • Click on Universal Serial Bus to expand, right click on the Seagate
      device and click on Update.
    If the issue still persist, you can try the below method.

    Method 2.

    I suggest you to connect the SD card to the system and run check disk on the hard drive to see if there are any corruptions. Follow the below steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      chkdsk /f
    Disclaimer: While performing check disk on the hard drive, if any bad sectors are found then check disk will try to repair that sector. Any data available on a bad sector might be lost. Once Check Disk completes, boot
    the computer and then check.

    Hope this helps. Keep posting us with status we will be glad to help you.

    How to format a hard disk correctly?

    One step at a time- I've only just read that info...!

    1. Hard Disk Sentinel - still awaited
    2. PC Specs- still awaited

    Low transfer rate confimed - a. see what HDS says b. search forum as I suggested.

    Meanwhile block Windows Update so your PC is usable.

    There's little point in trying to fix WU without decent disk performance.
