Likes # 0

Sys files been moved to Folder(same Ex-Drive) and whilst did work on old PC, everything was OK, but now (got another PC) can't connect to Ex-Drive. Supose, PC can't find Ex-Drive's Sys Files. I'm right? If, Yes, then have any ideas, please? p.s. Seagate service haven't any answers, on any question answer is: the same Help sheet, but there are not answer on my question, sorry. So, thank You for any idea, how to solve this. I know, simplest way is to forgot, but there are 2TB's. Thank You.

A little more information may help others help you.

What OS are you using. How are the Ex-Drives connected. Is the drive showing in in Disk Management. Do you ge any error messages.

If the Drives are showing in Disk Management check they have a drive letter assigned.

More Info : Old Pc : OS Win 7 ; New Pc : OS Win 7; Connection: USB 2.0 ; Nowere can find any connection results. At start, when plug in started to spin, but thats it. No one warning from PC. Looks like, PC ignore at all. Is it possible to use the same SysFiles from analog Seagate Ex-Drive?

Does it continue to spin or does it power down and go 'dead'

Have you checked that all the leads are firmly plugged in and not loose?

Have you tried putting it in a different USB port? and if possible can you try it on a different pc.

The model you have seems to be a plug and play and does not require any additional software.

Yes I made folder and move SysFiles to it. I'm scared to lost some of them (why Seagate left SysFiles able to see, don't know, I think they have been hidden, as for Windows), and PC+ExDrive still worked on old PC. Yes, ExDrive tried to connect (all time spining: faster-slower, faster-slower); Yes, tried to connect to different USB ports. No result.

Thank You.

Have a look through the posts on Seagate forum as there seem to be some issues with that model of drive, it may have gone bad and not be an issue of the sysfiles.
