There is no gentle way to do it, just pry the case apart. Most of what I have seen is, it's the circuit board inside controlling the hard drive...and then other have a grinding noise, which is not good at all.

Solution: See the following Seagate Knowledge Base articles for information on how to manage the sleep interval. Usually this thing powers on or at least maks a little noise when I plug it into a computer, which it hasn't. Are Wold Says: May 24, 2008 at 1:44 pm | Reply Thanks for checking back!
You might just want to void the warranty anyway and slowly open it up, or e-mail Seagate and explain the situation.

Unlike most of you folks, mine has been working flawlessly. Seagate Manager Windows 10 Success seems within my grasp. The power supply isn't the issue, and I too have hundreds of gigs of data that I really don't want to lose. Could this be the harddrive, or just the enclosure that's broken?

Windows 7: Seagate Freeagent Go Not Working Properly. 01 Sep 2012 #1 Holmes20 windows 7 home premium 64 bit 7 posts Seagate Freeagent Go Not Working Properly.
