Seagate integrators and OEM customers are faced with an increasing demand for thinner yet fully functional mainstream laptop computing solutions. Until recently, the only option for these thinner solutions revolved around high-priced, slow performing 1.8-inch drives and high-priced, fast solid state drives. Because both storage types were costly options, system designers had no choice but to build thinner chassis only for their high-end lines. Enter Seagate ingenuity.

I put this in an external case, and now its the backup drive for my laptop.
purchased an internal hard drive less then three months ago. grey screen today. contacted support and i get a link to deal with the manufacturer. no support and its not their problem, i exceeded my days of help or exchange or return, its my problem now.
Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
I am very sorry for the issues that you have been experiencing with your HDD. It does sound like there is an issue with the drive that is causing the issues that you have experienced. At this time I would recommend contacting Seagate directly as they do offer support on their drives. I am sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause, but they will be able to offer better assistance and help you out with a warranty if necessary.
I like to play around with my computer in a way that's not exactly easy on hard drives.
Any advice/experience that might be relevant?
Thanks for contacting us.
1. The new SSD only requires to be initialized prior to using or cloning. A guide on how to initialize can be found here.
2, I believe the computer will be unaware of the change if you use the EaseUS todo back up, however, I am not super familiar with this back up software and that might be more of a question for their forum.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
