12TB WD was cheaper than this ...


I had a full head of hair once ...
The thought of trusting a Seagate drive with 10TB of data literally sent a chill down my spine.

Maybe it was just bad timing but I will never forget the first (and last) time I bought a Seagate. After a few weeks it did something I'll never understand and locked itself into some weird state where it wasn't detectable regardless of how it was connected. SATA, USB adapter, whether in Windows or the BIOS. After a short while searching, it was apparently a firmware bug of some sort.

A firmware issue on a rotational hard disk - who has even ever heard of that before? And one that completely cripples the drive no less. Ineptitude on an unfathomable scale which simply can't and shouldn't be forgiven. Sling your hook, Seagate.

Thought you could only use upto a 8tb external harddrive on a Xbox One and PS4 ?
Is this a schucker or whatever the frig you call it? What's the rpm?

I would find out whether its 5400(ish) or 7200rpm as that might affext its suitability .
Most drives are shuckabke ,,, But some yu have to destroy the case to get the Pearls out.

No it's up to 16TB for Xbox One,. I think you are correct for the PS4 though 8TB maximum.

3-2-1 rule anyway. Three backups, two different media and one offsite.

If only use this as a backup drive locally, potentially attached to a NAS with a monthly backup regime

That is correct, there was some confusion over the Xbox One and I too believed for the longest time that Xbox One was limited to 8TB, but it is definitely 16TB per drive and 2x drives for max 32TB on Xbox One, and definitely 8TB and only 1 drive for PS4 (tested a 10TB recently on PS4 and it was a no go and a 8TB and 12TB together on Xbox One works fine).
I would use for backup only - had bad experiences with a number of drive manufacturers in the past and should never rely on a single point of storage.

Funny you say this.. We got issued 4TB drives for work. Mine worked fine for a month.. Next thing windows doesn't recognise it and had to do a data recovery on it. Somehow it switched the partition to RAW. Just low level formatting it now to see if it's going to be okay, but really concerned. Have several WD drives 4 are even refurbished and only 1 issue with them several after years.
Whenever Backblaze publish the stats for hard drive failures in their data centres, Seagate come out worst or near-worst:
backblaze.com/blo…19/
I probably still won’t fit all my games on for the Xbox...not that’s I’d want to or need to..

I've just had a 3tb Seagate start to fail because of some bad sectors, Win10 couldn't even mount the drive. I managed get it working again and delete the corrupted files but it was such a head ache.
WD is the only brand I really trust, saying that I've had a 1tb Toshiba for about 6 years and it's still going strong...
I wont be buying another Seagate again that's for sure.

I had a 1tb seagate do the same thing. To be fair it was over 5 years old when it happened late last year. Switched to RAW and then before I could even try to recover anything it had decided it would no longer even be recognised. Couldn't do diddly squat with it. Fortunately I had near 500gb of photos backed up but did lose all my music. Tried to not let that bother me because of Spotify and whatnot, but I've lost some pretty rare and irreplaceable music.

I've tried all of them, it's just luck of the draw. The one that fails the least (according to backblaze who tested thousands of disks in their data centre) is the Toshiba ones.

I feel your pain music wise. Luckily I managed to recover everything but only one month old not looking great. I could have paid £50 for a recovery tool also but luckily I sorted that. It appears to have formatted okay. Have to put some data on it now.
I paid £180 for one of these last August from Amazon after a review mentioned that they contain a Barracuda Pro drive. My unit did contain a Barracuda Pro (model no ST10000DM004) :D. I'd be interested to know if this is still the case.
