I recently erased my Macbook's HD because it was insufferably slow. I reinstalled OS X 10.6.1 and all is well! Computer's fast and everything works like it should. Except that my external hard drive (2TB Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk) is now read-only to me. It used to be readable and writable when plugged into any computer. Then something changed, and it was only read-write with my laptop (not anyone else's). When I reformatted and reinstalled OS X, I chose the same user name as I had before the reinstall, because I was semi-worried that this might happen, and thought that might help. My computer troubles were so frustrating, however, that I just took the leap. Now here I am with 620GB of data that I cannot delete, and another 1.38TB of empty space I cannot use.
Any ideas? Also, I apologize if this is in the wrong place. This is my first post on the Seagate boards.
