Hard drive prob

vbimport

#1

I found a 1.5 T external hardrive in my garage, it was loaded with all stuff, I do not need, formatted it, now can’t install anything on the disk, shows up in device manage and says the device is working, yet when I try to install NEW Folder" nothing.T.I.A.

What model is it and did you install it internally?

Check out hd sentinel or crystaldiskinfo.

Try deleting partition(s) and then use Seagate Discwizard, which is a free download if you don’t have it already, to add as new drive to partition and format it. This may or may not help but is very easy to try. I’ve had similar drive issues before, and using Discwizard hasn’t yet failed to resolve my problems.

Good advice, but please use SeaTools before. :wink:

If you get stuck or cant access anything on the disk, dismantle it and check again.
