How to Retrieve Lost Data from Seagate GoFlex

Most of people prefer to use external hard drive as an important data backup or transfer tool. To some extends, External hard drive is more stable than computer’s hard drive because of the operation system, and easier to carry than computer. But you still can’t avoid the data loss disaster due to known and unknown reasons from external hard drive, even you are using Seagate GoFlex.

When you lost the data or meet the external hard drive corrupted, I think you will contact with Seagate to recover your data back at once. So did I before. But when I found out the data recovery service from Seagate is too expensive, I decided to find another cheap but safe tool to get my data back, and make a tutorial for anyone who need it.

Before the tutorial start, you should make clear that the files you think they have been lost due to deleting or formatting are actually still somewhere on your disk. Because the space the files occupy is only marked as “available to reuse” and the files become invisible. Once you find your data lost, please stop using your Seagate GoFlex to store the new data, otherwise your data can’t be found back anymore.

And then download Wondershare Data Recovery and install it.
