I have a Seagate Expansion 1TB. I bought it 2 years ago and now it is out of warranty. Lately some of my data has been going missing. In the hard drive i have folders that labels different sections. One folder went completely missing like the folder was there but when you went in the folder it was empty and now my music folder which had over 10GB of it, is also missing. I am suspecting the hard drive is failing on me. I am running a long DST using Seagate diagnostic tool to check out the hard drive.

Edit: My other folder just went missing :ranting: But weridly it still says the same amount of space left. :mellow:

Edit 2: I just lost another :ranting:

Did you tryed boot up in safe mode?
Have seen some freeze when opening folders or files? Only folders with large size or lot of files in it are missing?

Edit:Sounds like its failing pretty hard.

No I did not try to boot it up in safe mode because it is a external harddrive. I just restarted my laptop and suddenly all my data Is back except for the first batch data that went missing. But when I was starting to open a file on my laptop a error message pops up saying something about corrupted data and structure which the hard drive is the laptops one. I am currently running CHKDSK and it' s already loads of error. This just weird how my laptop hard drive just fails out of nowhere after a restart.

Some updates: Seagate Sea Tools reports the hard drive to be fine when i did all the test that is available. I am currently running WD's diagnostic tool on it which is weird because the WD tool only works with WD products but meh let see how it comes out. Also i got a temperature reading from the external hard drive and it says 55C, the temperature was taken when it was running through the tests.
