comment Seagate Expansion Drive problems
Seagate Expansion Drives behave differently when connected via sata or the original casing due to some reason. That being said, the drive is physically damaged (it seems heads are desynchronised or some other problem i cannot name).

comment Seagate Expansion Drive problems
Well i used to love Seagate, i still have a 4GB (ah good times) drive that is still operational (10+ years ?) and survived 3 fried PCs :) Also i have 6 old WD Caviars all totally trashed. But things change in this case for the worse.. Anyway the data being half encrypted is not a problem, DiskCryptor allows pausing at any moment and if it crashes you lose one sector only.. Its a good program but it wont fix the fact that the HDD is trash :)

As for the drive, the filesystem is now not accessible, early on it was slow now if i try to open the hdd windows and DC hang.. I am afraid that this is a physical issue, my friend is of the opinion that "the heads are stuck in service area" or simply stuck, which is why they can read the DC header data (sector 1) but cannot access filesystem. anyway im not touching the drive and probably will give it to a profesional recovery service, they will probably just move the plates to another drive. thx for the answer :)

the drive operates differently within the case and when connected internally, and a google search of that shows that this happens often with many brands - the usb/sata connector uses weird firmware.
