I just had a Seagate 3TB Barracuda drive fail on me. Windows cannot see the drive at all and it seems the BIOS seems to hesitate a bit when doing a SMART check, then shows all my drives except for the 3TB. There were no warnings about any issues with the drive. Ironically, this drive was a replacement for a dying hard drive a few years ago.
Windows 10 will not see the drive under any circumstances. I've tried different SATA ports, SATA power connectors, and both data and power cables. I've also booted into GParted-Live and I'm not seeing the drive anywhere.
So ultimately, my question is if anyone knows any tricks with these Seagate drive to get it going again. Just long enough for me to pull all the data off of it. I don't want to commit to a data recovery service just yet.
