I have finally got my FreeAgent Pro 1Tb Drive running and stayng running with the eSata connection straight to my motherboard. However, I will not handle backup operations.
I have tried the backup software that comes with the drive but it would always fail. I have then removed that software and use Vista's back-up operations (which I seem to like better, anyway) but it starts, I hear clicks from the drive, the computer temporarily freezes for a few seconds then eventually quits (and message that the device could not be found or was not ready or something).
What is wrong with this piece of machinery??????
OS: MS Vista Ultimate.
All I know is that this drive has been a headache since i first bought. I have a smaller 320Gb Seagate which has been a dream. I backed up fine, is dependable, and trouble free.

Thanks kind of pointless is it ... to have eSata connection and not be able to use it?
I did have to really on the USB connection to set the drive up initially so it would not go to sleep on me and disappear from my system.
