  2. Which drive to pick?

    I'm lacking space in my rig and need to purchase a new drive but I can't decide over which one to pick: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/CbL7YJ/seagate-barracuda-2tb-35-7200rpm-internal-hard-drive-st2000dm006 or https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/n28H99/seagate-firecuda-1tb-35-7200rpm-hybrid-internal-hard-drive-st1000dx002 I don't want to spend more than £60 but on the hybrid ill lose 1tb and gain speed and on the standard drive ill gain 1tb but lose speed, which should I go for? Btw, these drives will be used for pc games and memes! https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/NpBrxr/seagate-firecuda-2tb-35-7200rpm-hybrid-internal-hard-drive-st2000dx002 <------ I'm also thinking about this one although it's £80 (convince me if you can :D) Current drives: 1TB(full) & 500GB(10GB left) & SSD 120GB
  3. So... I bought a hard drive from Amazon about 6 months ago and it began to fail. I searched for a way to claim my 3 years warranty and I fall on this page: https://seagate.com/ca/en/support/warranty-and-replacements/return-policy/ Here are the lines that annoy me : You must pay shipping costs for all shipments from you to us. Send your product to Seagate using the carrier of your choice. Please use a method with ability to trace shipment. Seagate is not responsible for shipments for which the carrier cannot provide proof of delivery. Your original product will NOT be returned to you. First, not only do you need to pay a third party to have service from them, they force you to pay extra to your carrier for a tracking number. Then, if they decide your warranty is not applicable, you will never get your hard drive back, nor the money you spent to buy it. I guess they are pretty straight forward in the policy, but the fact is : They may keep your defective hard drive no matter if send you a new one or not! So, depending of the nature and the origin of the damage, you may end up paying to send them something without even being sure if they will replace it. Moreover, you also pay for import fees and all applicable duties when/if they send you a new hard drive. I'm curious, what do you think? For me, it's clear, until I get a CRAZY deal or they change their return policy, I'm never gonna buy a seagate product again.
  4. Unable to use new HDD

    Today I purchased a new Seagate Barracuda 2TB drive. I've attached it to my PC and started up my PC. I can view it on BIOS and device manager, however I cannot view it on Disk management to allocate it new volume. Can anyone help? Am i doing something wrong?
  5. Failing harddrive

    Hi my PC is around 3 years and 4 months old, and i have been experiencing slow load times in games (slower than my other friends with their 5+ years old HDDs) Then i downloaded the CrystalDiskinfo tool to check the Harddrives condition, and i see 99 on reallocated sectors and 100 on current pending sectors is this a sign of a failing hard drive? Because i've been looking at other forum posts all days and they say different stuff, do you guys have any experience with this and should i replace the HDD? I've been looking at the Toshiba P300 3TB and Seagate Barracuda 3 TB, since they cost around 600 DKK (100$) Hope someone knows more about Hard drives than me Cheers Tobias
  6. The symptoms started about a week ago, where my 1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD started going on the fritz. I noticed it when I tried running a game of League of Legends and suddenly a lot of my program icons were replaced with "Blank Page" Icons and when I'd try to run it, I received a little window asking me to browse for the file because it was not able to find it. I run my OS off an ssd, so my browsers and other light programs still run fine. I just can't get into any of my files in the hard drive, nor can I actually do anything to it. I've tried just about every trouble shooting article out there and I've decided to give in and ask my one beacon of hope before I just buy a new one. I don't have a LOT of stuff on the hard drive, but it would just be a pain in the ass to not be able to recover my files before dumping it, sentimental stuff. I'll post pics of all the error messages and weird shit I've seen since this started happening. I do want to note, that this pc I am using is made of 90% used parts, and I wouldn't be surprised if I am just experiencing hard drive failure due to wear and tear from the previous owner, who was a pc and gaming enthusiast. On the off chances that I could get my HDD to work, I noticed a HUGE blow to performance, certain parts of my games were being really glitchy and slow, my load times also took a massive cut once these problems started cropping up. In this image I left it mostly uncropped so you could see the files running off my SSD and the files running off my HDD. What the actual hell is going on and what can I do to salvage my data, since it's pretty clear I'm not gonna be able to get this hard drive back to running as normal.
  7. Hi Guys, ive been looking online and so far it seems that seagate drives do run rather warm. I Have a 2 year old Samsung D3 with a seagate drive in (since seagate bought out samsung) and 2 of seagates new Backup + Hubs, a 4 and 6TB which are less than 6 months old, here is a link to the 6TB version.... http://argos.co.uk/product/6558862 Now the drives work fantastic with no issues but Hard Disk Sentinel which i use to monitor health of drives registers them rising to 53*c and just sits there and doesnt get any warmer and works fine, when u feel the casing of the externals they are not even warm to touch so im wondering if this is a firmware bug. The only reason i say firmware is because a friend of mine was having an issue with his Nvme drive getting warm and when i did research it was all over the WD forums of other people with exact same issues on theirs stating since they updated drive firmware they had drive reporting warmer temperatures.
  8. Hardware Config Questions

    ADMIN: if this belongs in a different category, like photography, please move Here's the deal. I'm a HUGE photography and videography nerd who insists that everything's better in RAW because I get more flexibility in post. The downside? Massive file sizes and filled drives. Currently, I have a DAS solution within my computer, with two refurbished Hitachi 4TB drives (don't worry, I have an offline backup regularly made), mirrored in Windows Storage Spaces, for a total of 3.17TB after formatting. As you can imagine, my reason for using refurbished units is because of budget constraints. I can't afford new large capacity drives, like Seagate's enterprise capacity 10TB helium-filled drives or WD's Gold datacenter 10TB helium-filled drives, though that'd be awesome to have. The storage array is completely full, with no where to put anything else. With several large upcoming projects, including some jobs for major league sports teams (100-150GB per session), I'm worried about running out of space to put anything else. Here's where you and your (professional) input comes in. Would it be better to continue expanding in a DAS environment with larger capacity drives (I only have two 3.5in drive bays)? Which drives should I use? Would it be better for me to build an external DAS box using an older motherboard and SAS expander card? OR would it be better for me to switch over to a NAS environment with larger capacity drives? Again, which drives should I use? What software operating system would you use? What's the reliability in your opinion? OR should I start getting archive drives and storing material offline, only pulling those drives and installing them into an external interface when needed? Again, which drives would you recommend for offline storage to minimize data rot? How many drives would you mirror to protect from a frozen drive failure? Is there a better solution that you can think of? PLEASE let me know as soon as possible!
  9. Connecting a hard drive

    Does your os hard drive have to be plugged into the first sata slot or can you use the second? Im having clearance issues with the gpu and cant use the gpu and the first sata connection
  10. Whenever I use my storage drive (Seagate Barracuda 4TB) and sometimes when I don't it just doesnt appear as a drive in my system while being physically connected, the only way I have found to fix this so far is to keep restarting windows until it works again, which is extremely annoying. Something also seems to be clicking, most noticeably when the drive Isn't being recognized (doesnt show up in task manager, anything that was running on it crashes, and it disappears from file manager) I dont get any sort of error code but it doesn't take a genius to figure out something isnt right, heres a video of my system with the clicking sound when this happens: Here are my specs: Windows 10 Home OEM 64bit Gigabyte F2A68HM-H AMD Athlon X4 845 Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 + 4GB DDR3 (no meaningful markings other than 4GB DDR3) MSI Gaming RX470 4GB KINGSTON SV300S37A120G (OS Drive/SSD) Seagate ST4000DM004 (Storage Drive/HDD) <-- This is the thing thats disconnecting EVGA 450B 80+ Bronze 450W PSU That should be everything, if I'm missing something, tell me!
  11. Hello everyone, i have a simple question. Which would you buy out of these, or do you have a better suggestion.

  12. WD Black vs. Seagate SSHD

    WD2003FZEX ( Western Digital, 2013 ) vs. ST2000DX002 ( Seagate, 2016) I am looking to replace my current hard drive as it is showing symptoms of breaking down. ( High response time, over a thousand MS. ) Please help me choose. I would very much prefer one that is faster. I play games like ArmA 3 which renders a lot and has a long loading screen with my current hard drive, I would get an SSD but currently i don't have the budget to do so, and these 2 are my only choices. Please do not tell me to go with an HDD + SSD combo or just an SSD, as i am not able to because of my budget, i would need to choose one that would last me long enough and anything that would be more powerful on the long run. Thanks.

  14. Thoughts about using 7 drives?

    So I have been wondering for a while when it comes to storage. Since I use my computer for different things, I've set my computer up to have 7 drives connected at all times. I try to not interfere another drive when it's in use, so I can then use another drive without worry. Some may have chosen to set up a RAID config, some might not. So this is the way I've done it, and here at my drives, and how I use them: Drive C: OS, drivers, frequently used software (Samsung 960 EVO - 250GB M.2) Drive D: CD/DVD burning/reading, driver install (Asus DRW-24D3ST - SATA) Drive E: Not-so-heavy/needy games (Western Digital WD20EARS - 2TB SATA HDD) Drive F: Heavy/needy games like GTA V (Samsung 850 EVO - 500GB SATA SSD) Drive G: Media like music, images, videos (Toshiba HDWD110 - 1TB SATA HDD) Drive H: Less often used software, assets (Kingston V300 SSDnow - 240GB SATA SSD) Drive I: Downloads, backup, video editing files (Seagate ST1000DM003 - 1TB SATA HDD) Just to make a few things clear: Nvidia's game capture software 'GeForce Shadowplay' is set to save recordings to drive F, the media drive. To avoid frame stutters and alike, GeForce Shadowplay needs it's own drive. And I've tried to record to a SSD, but didn't help much. Once in a while, I download many files at once, so I thought using a drive almost just for that would be a good idea, as downloading several things at once fragments the drive. When I got the files downloaded, I store them on another drive, then defrag the download drive, delete the downloaded files from that drive, and I'm good to go as far as I know. I also store backups and video editing files there, so keeping it tidy is nice. By the way, ignore drive X in the picture there. It's a USB thumb drive that doesn't sit in the computer all the time. Only drive C, D, E, F, G, H, and I is in the computer the whole time. Back to the point I wanted. What do you guys think of this setup? Is it too much, too messy, or is it okay in how I've set everything up?

  17. SSHD Missing Space

  19. PC Part Lot

    This a PC part lot that I got for 100 dollars and I have no idea if anything works.... I will find out later and post about it again! When I first pulled to this house to buy these parts, I was already a little sketched out considering the location I was at and I was somewhere I was not familiar. The person selling all these components had found them in the basement of a house that she was currently flipping. When I first got all of this, I was super pumped. Considering that all of my stuff I buy is second hand and i'm just starting out in the PC world. First impression was awesome. It looked like it all would work. Once I got home I realized how gross all the stuff. The graphics card had so much corrosion on it, i'll include a pic. The Gigabyte motherboard box had like rat poop in it. Some of the DDR2 ram had this bug in like a sac in it, that looked like a little worm. Some of the other ram just looked like someone put gel in it and touch it with dirty hands. The hard drive ports were a little destroyed. I cleaned it all up and tried to get it to worked, but sadly it wouldn't. It was all pretty gross, I definitely washed my hands after this. Memory (DDR3) -OCZ 2gb (2) -G.Skill RipJawsX 2gb (3) -Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2) -Bunch of DDR2 Ram Graphics Card -Vapor-x Radeon HD 5770 Hard Drive -Seagate barracuda 1500 gb Mother Boards -Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P -ASUS M5A 78L-M Also got a evga 6 pin power cable ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************* UPDATE Sadly not all of this worked. I'll make a list of what did and didn't. I actually got my money back and just bought the Asus motherboard for 10 dollars and she gave me some of the ram back to see if I could get it too work. The graphics card she gave to me for free. In the end it worked out good. Memory (DDR3) -OCZ 2gb (2) (didn't work) -G.Skill RipJawsX 2gb (3) (didn't work) -Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2) (didn't work) -Bunch of DDR2 Ram (I didn't have anything to test it on) Graphics Card -Vapor-x Radeon HD 5770 (Worked) Hard Drive -Seagate barracuda 1500 gb (didn't work) Mother Boards -Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P (didn't work) -ASUS M5A 78L-M (I assumed it works) ********Pictures of the components after closer inspection*******
  20. my seagate 2tb expansion pack suddenly started making a beeping sound when i connect the usb to my laptop. i get the sound of it being connected on my laptop but then it doesnt show up. cant see it on device manager but i can see it on devices and printer (windows 10) and it even disappears from D&P when i disconnect it and appears on connection. the blue light on the hard drive also blinks i guess thats all i can describe about the problem. i have a lot of data on it (only 100 gb left) so id really like to get it fixed w/ minimum hassle has anyone faced this kinda problem, and got a fix for it?
  21. The parts: Asus ROG Maximus X code, seagate ST8000NE0004 Enterprise Nas hdd ( IronWolf Pro )*3 Samsung MZ-V6P1T0BW 1000Gb 960 Pro Questions: I've read that the m.2 shares bandwidth with 1 of the SATA ports so does this mean that in my RAID 5 setup I should avoid using the 1st SATA port? Just to be clear the point is to have the m.2 as my primary standalone drive and then the 3 SATA disks need to be setup in RAID 5. I was hoping to avoid using forums for this question but after a few emails back and forth with ASUS support staff due to misunderstandings I got the attached response that just makes me feel that they really don't know what they're talking about.
  22. Hello, I have a Seagate Expansion 1 TB external hard drive which I bought back in 2015. The problem I'm having is that it just won't mount (since just a few days ago). It powers on, the light on it powers on, the spindles inside move meaning that the drive is working. I have tried Windows 10 (latest update) and Ubuntu 17.10, the drive just won't show up anywhere. I have also tried connecting the device to any other computer I had access to, but showed the same problem. Here are the specs for the laptop I'm using: Dell Latitude E6430 Intel Core i5-3380M 8GB RAM 240GB SSD (Windows drive) In Windows 10: The USB device connection sound and disconnect sound can be heard. File Explorer doesn't show the drive. Disk Management doesn't show the drive. Device Manager shows "Seagate Expansion SCSI Disk Device" under "Disk drives". (I tried a few things with this, more on that later) Devices and Printer shows "Expansion" under "Devices". Windows 10 Settings app shows "Expansion Connected to USB 3.0" under "Other Devices". DISKPART in CMD doesn't show the drive when the "LIST DISK" command is entered. Note: Since I can't see the drive anywhere, I can't "chkdsk" in CMD. I did run a "chkdsk" but that was probably in early 2016 after that it was working perfect till now. In Ubuntu 17.10: The USB device connection sound and disconnect sound can be heard. Linux Disk utility doesn't show the drive. Nautilus File Explorer doesn't show the drive. What I have tried so far: In the Device Manager entry "Seagate Expansion SCSI Disk Device" under "Disk drives", I tried every update, disable, uninstall device and tried to reconnect, but it didn't solve the problem. I tried to so similar things in "Devices and Printers", but it didn't solve the problem. I tried to run DISKPART in the Windows installation, but it didn't show up. I tried all USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, but nothing. It did mount once but it slowed down my laptop and it wouldn't even shutdown as quickly as it usually does. When I click on "Safely Remove Hardware" my laptop slows down. Note: I always safely remove USB drives and external hard drives. My USB drives are working perfectly in the ports on my laptop. What I would like to know that, is there any way I can just copy the useful data I want? Can this drive be repaired and how? Should I continue to use this drive once it is repaired or get a new one? If I would get a new one then which external hard drive should I buy (other than Seagate)? Please any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time. P.S. I'll attach some screenshots if required.
  23. Hello!

  24. I have an ReFS-formatted Seagate BUP Slim 2TB Drive and it has 1.67 TB data used. It works perfectly on my PC as it was originally formatted their only an not on any other system (Tried three diff. computers with different windows builds). The errors I get are attached herewith. I wonder what could be the probable problem as i've even tried enabling ReFS in the Registry Editor. These three tested systems are devoid of any malware so no chance of data corruption (The other reason being that my drive works fine everytime when i put it back into my own system. I've never encountered this brutal problem in NTFS before so pls help me out. I hit an "Ars" article up and I still wasn't able to establish the link b/w it and the fault: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/08/microsoft-to-remove-full-refs-support-from-windows-10-pro-push-workstation-sku/
  25. Hi guys, I'm choosing between the WD Blue, WD Black and Seagate FireCuda for my secondary hard drive. My question is: is the WD Blue good enough, or is it worth upgrading to WD Black or Seagate FireCuda. From where I'm from, the WD Blue is about 45 USD cheaper than the other two. I use the secondary drive mainly for gaming and movies, so which drive is the best for the money? Thanks in advance.
