It was working fine on Win 7 earlier, I formatted my desktop and installed win 7 OS since then my exernal hard drive is not initializing. My external hdd was not connected while the formatting n installation process. I tried all the possibilities which i can do to detect the hdd, it is not detected in My Computer-Device Manager-Drive-Disk Management , but it can be seen in device&printer.
    Finally, I updated win 7 to win 10 still is was not detecting. Then, in Device manager - Storage Controller - Right Clicked USB ATTACHED SCSI (UAS) Mass Storage Device and Clicked Enable option on dropdown menu and then Seagate BUP Plus Slim BK SCSI Disk Device shown in Device Manager - Drive & Disk Management.
    Now in Disk management it displays Disk2 unknown Not Initialized - Unallocated.

    Have you tried plugging it into a different computer?

    I have not tried their data recovery software, but their partitioning software is second to none so I would expect their data recovery software to be as well:
    MiniTool data recovery software – Power Data Recovery and Mac Data Recovery.

    Also, do you have a router with a USB port? If you do, you might try plugging into the router.
