Was in the middle of playing a game(not STO), when the screen froze up. Thinking it was a graphics problem, I alt-tabbed out, only to find, when I went to restart the game, that the drive was inaccessible. I can still see the drive, and its size, just not anything on it. If I could just get access for a couple hours, I could copy the stuff somewhere else. I have enough free space on my other drives for the games, I think, most of the other stuff is pics and videos I saved. Seriously ticked off about this. If you're wondering, it's a Seagate 1TB external USB drive.

If you just Re-Down Load, and Install, it should be OK for you. Only Takes Time, and all your Toons and Such is on the Server. After Install, Simply By-Pass the point where it asks for a Key Number, and go right to Log-In.

Oh, I know that, I've had to do something similar when another game I had got messed up, and I had to un/reinstall. I'm just mad that it wasn't JUST STO, or something similar(characters, ect, saved on server), because I've lost almost everything regarding the games I own.

I'm not sure, but doubtfull. I REALLY don't want to send it to someone, other than someone I know and trust, because I have a couple files with my passwords and cd-keys on it, so I can just copy/paste instead of having to type them out(they're long and complicated, and typing them's a chore). I may be able to contact someone who could help(older guy, not agamer, wont care about the keys, lol), I'll try tomorrow.

Seagate has their own Customer Support Links, Maybe they could give you some idea of how to Alternately access the drive?

i just had that happen to mine a fw days ago, went and bought 2 new 2tb drives to replace it, went to check it via a hub on the laptop in disk managemt, was readable, main issue was windows decided to kill itself.

not always the drive but windows itself if its an install bettwen 6-14 months for the home users for some reason (random thou).

Never heard of the Windows thing before. Not trying to get support for my drive here, that'd be silly. No, I was just wondering if anyone had a similar problem, if they solved it, and how. Drives about3 years old, I think(don't remember how long ago I got it), but everything else is fine, it's just the one drive. Have a few savegames still, but sadly, I don't think I backed up too many of them, and if I did, they're likely on the same drive, due to its size. I'll figure something out, I hope.
