Just over a year ago I bought one of the sh*tty Seagate 320 GBS External Hard drive for $200. At first it was great I used maybe once a week it was flawless, I could transfer GBS upon GBS in a matter of seconds, I used this to keep all my back up files. About a month ago the drive all of sudden would take forever to transfer files, either from drive to pc or pc to drive, for a 500 mbs file It would take 400 minutes. I tried fragmenting did a driver scan error and got this log

Failure Predicted - Attribute: 5 Reallocated Sectors Count, Count of sectors moved to the spare area. Indicate problem with the disk surface or the read/write heads.
There are 2153 bad sectors on the disk surface. The contents of these sectors were moved to the spare area.
The drive found 1 bad sectors during its self test.
There are 1 weak sectors found on the disk surface. They may be remapped any time in the later use of the disk.
Replace hard disk immediately.
It is recommended to backup immediately to prevent data loss.

So I contacted Seagate Technical support, and ask them what could I do to fix the drive and if they would refund me. Got a response they told me there was nothing I could do to fix it and as far as refund was concerned forget about it the drive was a year old. I used to have a piece of sh*t 8gb USB stick it lasted for 6 years I never had a problem with it until I lost it. This overpriced Chinese piece of s**t barely made it a year and they refuse to fix or refund.

 If they endorse the product, they should except the full return of the product. Instead, they tell you to contact the Mfgr. I think not. That usually dosn't go well. Theses drive are junk since like 1198 at least. had 5 desktop drives and two externals just quit! All data lost! Im pretty sure they program them to fail after a certain amount of time right in an IC chip inside the unit. Stateing a strong opinion here and not a fact as i cant begin to prove the allegation. But when there is one possibility that just makes sense, well, you be the judge!

It is not worth putting your data on a hard drive any longer! Go back to CDs or DVDs and protect them. They will soon figure out how to make thoses fail just seeting on the shelf too before long. They are pushing for you to store all your info on other internet servers called cloud storage! They have all the acces to your data if you use internet anyway. Keep your personal stuff personal. Dont use the computer you store stuff on online period! If, you want it to remain personal!
