    Thanks! I tried the Seagate Recovery Services program, that told be my drive was not supported.

    On to the tests:

    Short Drive Self Test passed

    Fix All Fast failed

    Unfortunately, your Seagate product has failed an important diagnostic test, possibly caused by problem sectors which are difficult to read. Now is a good time to make sure that you have a current backup of your important data. If you have not done so already, please consider running the Long Generic test on your external drive. This test has the ability to repair problem sectors that are difficult to read. For more information on this subject, see the Help file topic "Bad Sector Found".

    Well depending on costs may be a data recovery service can pull something. These large drives are great for storage but unless they are in some sort of advance raid then we expose ourselves to these single point failures.

    Sorry you couldn't resurrect.
