Seagate External Hard Drive Not Recognised

  jlr1996 22:58 06 Apr 2017

Upon insertion of the external drive it does not show up in 'My Computer.' It is recognised in device manager and devices & printers, and even in disk management, however any attempt to access the drive is fruitless. I am completely unable to format or change drive letter & paths, however disk management suggests that the partition is completely healthy yet I am unable to access the drive. Uninstalling & reinstalling drivers has no effect & current drivers are up to date.

Any help would be appreciated!

Try a third party partition manager like Easus (free) click here
