i've purchased a Freeagent GoFlex 1TB about 3 months ago in the US
the drive functioned well in the first month or so. lately it began to malfunction:
first, no access was possible, although the drive was recognized by the OS. I tried quite a few recovering programs, and after a week or so of trying succefully re-entered the drive.
a week after that same problem, this time no solution since.
i've given up on the data on it and tried to format it with no success.
the drive is recognized by windows 7, folders are empty though...
when i try to format it doesnt allow me to, i've tried different computers, different OS, different cables...
tried seagate disc wizard, seagate windows tools, other tools
tried to format from my computer, from disk management, from safe mode
none of the above was helpful
any help / suggestions would be much appriciated
thanks in advance

thank you all for your support.
anyways, the solution that worked for me was uninstalling AVG free 2012
then using "avg remover" :http://www.avg.com/ww-en/utilities
and all the problems gone
good luck to all
