I recommend that you do a google search for how to get into the BIOS of your particular brand of computer and also Google how to change the "Boot Order" of your computer. It is really not difficult and you can watch a few YouTube video's of others doing it...so you are comfortable with the procedure before proceeding. It only takes a few minutes to change the boot sequence in your computers BIOS (Basic Input / Output System).

Different Computers have different ways to access the BIOS but it all basically entails touching one of the Function Keys (or F Key) on your keyboard when the computer is initially powered on (within the first 5-10 seconds).

The BIOS is generally menu driven with your arrow keys and simple keyboard commands , that it even shows you on the screen.

Here's a good read on it: https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...,5732.html

Again, I also recommend you go to YouTube and do a search for your type of computer and the word BIOS in the search feature and watch a couple of video's.

Changing the boot order in the BIOS is not that difficult. Just spend 10 mins educating yourself...and you can do this!

Good Luck!
A few years ago I bought nine Seagate 5TB external USB3 drives. This year five of them failed in a 2-month period. I had hoped that the bad Seagate 3TB times were past (all six of mine failed in two years).

This is with extremely light use - only for storing pictures, videos etc. No streaming. They spend 99.999% of their time unplugged.

I've had some WD drives fail in the same usage but it's much less frequent and more random. With SG it seems whole lines are bad.
Wha....

SIX external drives at the same time????

Dude, get a NAS. Or stop data hording. Or get a baby server with plenty of bays and RAID that bad boy.

If that's a laptop, the bus might have not had enough power for all of those dives........

So much WHY.

Can someone who td'd explain why? I'm in the market for an external drive to back up photos. It wouldn't be constantly written to or read, so would this drive be a bad idea?

I have three Seagate Backup Plus external drives that are a few years old that I save copies of videos from my trail camera. Haven't had any trouble with them. Mine look different from those. I guess they changed the design.

They are the typical Seagate haters who come in and crap on & TD every Seagate deal. These same haters are the ones who always push Western Digital drives (as if those have never failed!).

I also put them in the same category as those who refer to Costco in every thread that has absolutely nothing to do with Costco!

I did happen to buy all my Seagate drives at Costco. I also have two WD My Book drives. I couldn't never get them to work correctly plugged directly into my computer. The computer would always try to boot from them and it was beyond my ability to figure out why. So I have them plugged into the router and they work fine.

Are they failing when temperatures change with the seasons?

Thanks for the info, but I have 4 Seagate drives plugged directly into the computer that work fine, and the WD ones don't cause any problem since I plugged them into the router. So at this point no need to mess with the BIOS

Did the drive fail or just the USB interface? This is common for external drives. The drive inside may be completely fine, unless you hear a clicking noise... in that case you're screwed lol.
