  1. As the title says. How are the Ironwolf disks? I've always went with WD myself mostly because of brand loyalty, but my main HDD has been a 2TB Seagate drive for a while now and I've never had problems with it. The Ironwolfs are a little cheaper compared to the WD Reds (only ~15 euros however though). I've come across some stories about Seagate drives and failures, but I'm not sure how much of that to believe. Which one would you get?

  3. I want to buy a minimally 5 TB drive around 7200rpm. As i think it, it should be a hdd because i want to use it in my gaming pc. I want to store pretty simple files like films, but in 4K so i need a lot of space. If you recommend western digital, in which color? And my last question: can i put a nas hdd in my pc? I dont want to slow down my pc with this project so the 7200rpm models are the best for me i think. Thanks the answers in advance!
  4. I just got a seagate Barracuda 3TB, and i'm looking on the internet, and it doesn't seem to have a good reputation at all. Starting with https://newegg.com/global/mx/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822178994 to even videos and coments everywhere (FB, youtube, etc) saying that seagate is shit. I really don't know if i should return the hardrive to the shop and get a refund, or just keep it and see what happends.
  5. I just purchased a 4TB Seagate BarraCuda about an hour ago on Amazon to use as a drive for all of my games however looking online I have seen some people claiming that their BarraCuda drive isn't 7200rpm but is in fact something like 5900rpm? Can anyone confirm if the Seagate BarraCuda 4TB model is 7200rpm or not? Thanks

  7. As a part of Seagate's push for more data center drives, they are looking at adding in multi-actuator HDDs to their enterprise drive lines in 2018. With their proposed multi-actuator drives, Seagate thinks that they can double the data performance for reads and writes as compared to an existing Hard Disk, which is one of the biggest bottlenecks for deployment of High Capacity drives. https://techreport.com/news/32976/seagate-multi-actuator-hard-drives-think-two-heads-are-better-than-one This is kind of interesting in that you would have each set of heads able to independently access separate partitions of the platter stack, although I'm thinking that the issuing of the changes in magnetic fields, high speed spinning of all of those platters and potential imbalance issues from two separate actuator motors probably made this an engineering nightmare... I also severely doubt the claims of doubling the data performance, but would really like to have them achieve that. Of course, I would also like to see an improvement on some of their quality issues as I've had several Seagate drives fail on me in the past.

  8. So, I just bought a new 10tb Seagate drive... I've gotten into the habit of running Seagate drives through their variety of tests using "seatools" I run SMART, and short/long generic tests. This new drive I've received is failing the long test, Seatools does have a fix long process... So I'm running that now, but it keeps failing at 30%... I'm thinking about exchanging it. The last Seagate drive I purchased, it had the same issues... I had to exchange one and then do a long fix on the replacement that showed up... but its been working fine for a year now. ___ What does everyone else do to drives before start loading them up with data?
  9. What Drive Should I Get?

    Around 4 TB for games and movies
  10. So, Im relatively new to PC building, however in 6 months (Im 17) Ive learnt lots of things about building, Graphics Cards, CPU Tiers, Storage, ALU`s, FPU`s microacrhitectures, Interent Protocols, etc. and build around 20 to 30 PCs. (Ive binge watched Techquickie, other channels, tutorials, etc) Even though my PC is really good. (R5 1600X + 16GB of DDR 4 3200MHz (2x8) + RX 580 8GB) Im planning to upgrade my internet plan to 50Mbps AND Building myself a Home server. I would wait for the Ryzen+ Release, and use a 2300X, 8GB of RAM and another RX 580 8GB, I would also update my personal CPU and sell my 1600X (for a 2600X), but I digress.. The problem? Storage. Since i`m quite new to RAID (first time), so Im planning on using 2 2TB Seagate FireCuda SSHDs on RAID 0. Because of the SSHD capabilites, my most frequent data would be stored on the SSD part, while retaining 7200RPM speeds on RAID. But is the SSD cache compatible with RAID? I dont want to be dealing with multiple drives on my first NAS. Is it compatible (and worth it?) Also, is it possible? As a first timer, I would love your help.
  11. I have a Seagate Backup Plus 1 TB external hdd. When my friend returned it to me it wasn't showing up in explorer. The hdd is recognized by device manager but not showing up in disk management. It is beeping when i plug it in. 2 beeps pause 2 beeps pause.... for a minute or so and then a single beep and beeping stops. Tried seagate tools but the repair's failed. Is there any way to recover those files? Any help would be appreciated.

  14. So I am looking to buy a new HDD as my old Hitachi 1TB started making drilling noises and it was too small for my needs anyway. At my local retailers the WD Black and Red Pro and the Seagate Barracuda Pro 4TB versions are the same price wich I find a little interesting because they are in a completly different league IMO(maybe I'm wrong tho).But here is the catch, the Toshiba 6TB drives are at the same price too (give or take 5-10usd). I was wondering why the Toshiba drives are so cheap compared to the WD ones.Virtually I get 2TB free space if I get the Toshiba over the WD ones.They are all 7200rpm,128MB cache. Anyone knows why are the Toshiba drives so cheap?Maybe shorter lifespan,cheap parts,high noise levels etc.? I kinda want that extra 2TB, but a little bit suspicous about the quality of Toshiba as I've had some Hitachi drives fail on me(I heard Toshiba bought Hitachi and got into the 3.5" HDD market after that) Excuse me if there were any bad sentence structures or badly written words, english is not my native language. Thanks in advance for any competent answers!
  15. Hi, Just been looking on the market for a good 3'5 HDD for my NAS. So far I've been looking at Ironwolf seagate drives. Any suggestion on HDD/brands would be great.
  16. I have a 1 TB Seagate expansion drive and i tried to plug it into my PC today but it doesn't show up. i looked in device manager and it is in there but not in my PC or disk management. i have left some photos below. thanks
  17. I have a refurbished 2TB Seagate Pipeline Hard Drive that failed after only 215 days since purchased. I believe that the files on the disks are OK, and that the problem is in the control board, or something similar. Drive was working fine one moment, then suddenly I was not able to access it. Then Windows started prompting me to format the drive to be able to use it. Needless to say, I have not formatted the drive. I can read the SMART info using SeaTools, and Recuvva let me see files on the HD. Nothing life-changing on the drive - just over 120 HD quality movies and a couple dozen multiple seasons of TV shows - it was about 75% full. I've pulled the drive from the system and will wait until I have some options for recovery before putting it back in. Any idea on how to get this drive up and running again without formatting would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  18. Here is what I have for storage. SSDs 120GB Samsung 850 EVO 250GB Samsung 850 EVO HDDs 1TB Seagate 5400rpm 2.5" 3TB Seagate 7200rpm 3.5" I am trying to figure out how to best allocate space for Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, Adobe CC Suite, Games (Destiny 2, Diablo III, Shadow of War, WoW) other programs and music, videos, pictures, docs and downloads. The games currently take up 164GB Adobe takes up 33GB Windows about 20GB Other programs 20GB Windows, other programs and Adobe CC Suite on 120GB SSD Games on the 240GB SSD Everything else on 3TB as storage The 1TB a scratch disk for Adobe Does this configuration sound good?
  19. I have a new Seagate barracude (baught it on amazon) and for some reason I can see it in the BIOS or in the task maneger (it has 0% usage there) but I dont see it in "this PC" or as a drive in the system. It is the second drive I have, the first one is the Force MP500 from corsair, I have it for a year and it work mighty fine.
  20. I tried asking this question on the Tom's Hardware forums, which 2 years ago were way better for getting answers. The answers I got there this time (all 3 of them) weren't even answers; not a single one actually answered the question, it's like people just copy pasted things there in hopes of getting selected as best answer. I wouldn't be surprised if that's what they did. Anyways, hello there! I'm Feliks and I need a storage drive for my laptop, and for the boot drive I already have an SSD. What I use this computer for is/will be a mix of gaming, school work, coding, possibly VMs, etc; whatever my heart's desire. I use a lot of storage and I don't like to use more than 1/2 of the space available on a drive at any time anyways. If there were bigger drives available for laptops, I'd probably go for it. The FireCuda's the biggest available for the laptop. It's important to me that the drive is reliable, but speed is also important (though as long as it somewhat compares with my desktop 7200RPM drive it should be fine). I am between the 2.5" HGST Travelstar 1TB "normal" mechanical hard drive and the 2.5" Seagate Firecuda 2TB "hybrid" hard drive. I honestly am inclined towards each one; I really want the FireCuda because of the extra storage and somewhat because of the speed though I've heard mixed things about it especially since the mechanical part of the hard drive is only 5400 RPM (some say this doesn't matter because of the way it's designed). The TravelStar has great reviews across the board and I trust HGST much more. Also it's 7200RPM, but on the flip side it's just a plain old normal hard drive. I am worried the data will be at risk both because of SeaGate in general being considered a "less reliable" hard drive brand and because of what was said about this particular drive at the bottom of this page http://overclock.net/t/1619691/laptop-drives-seagat... (scroll to the bottom; it's the last post, by a guy who "does data recovery for a living"). It is important to me that the data's at least recoverable, yes I make backups but still, it's not like EVERYTHING gets instantly backed up (please don't give me a spiel about that... just don't).PLEASE do not recommend to me to buy a 1TB SSD or any other SSD. I HAVE an SSD and I simply cannot afford a 1TB one and I cannot have any less than 1TB on my storage drive, as you can see I already want even more than 1TB if possible. (If you insist on a 1TB SSD, feel free to send me one for free!) Thank you!

  22. Failed external drive

    Hi, I have a Seagate Backup Plus Desk Hub 8TB that seems to have failed. Windows is not recognising the device and in the Device Manager it's showing up in there saying Unknown USB Device (Set Address Failed). Seagate have advised that they will need to replace under warranty (it's only 7mths old) but I need to get the data recovered from it 1st and provide a record that this has been done. Now obviously there's a charge top this which I am finding to be a very disgusting customer service experience when it's not even my fault that the drive has failed but as the charge is there looks like I need to pay it. There's photo's on there from 2006 for which there is no back up since 2010. Ironically, this weekend I was going to be building a dedicated storage server and moving all the info from this drive to that server. If only it could've lasted another week. My question is though, with Windows not recognising the drive, is there any software/hardware out there that will recover this for me for a fraction of the cost Seagate or 3rd party companies will charge?
  23. Blackarmor NAS 220 Not showing up

    I have a Blackarmor NAS 220 that I got of a friend. I have tried reseting it when it is plugged into the router via ethernet and it doesnt show up what so ever. I have tried network scans and using the Seagate discovery software on windows 7 and windows 10 and it didnt help. Any help?
  24. Western Digital vs Seagate

    Which company is best for 2tb internal hardisk. Western Digital blue or Seagate barracuda. Western digital blue comes with 5400rpm and Seagate barracuda comes with 7200rpm. Cost difference between these 2 in my country is around 7-8$. I have bought an Samsung 250gb Evo 850 SSD. And my preference is for gaming.
  25. Holy Jesus Christ! seagate made the 12 TB hard drive! Don't believe me? Check: https://amazon.com/Seagate-BarraCuda-3-5-Inch-Internal-ST500DM009/dp/B075XNL17G/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1507863010&sr=1-4&keywords=500gb%2Bhdd&th=1 Mabe Linus, Check it out (it still not in stock But it will after a week) so I can know if this is just an Amazon fake. plus it might be useful for his media group... 12 terabytes at 6 gigabytes/min, and they cost a lot. (2 days and counting)
