Seagate Drive Failures

Woops! Looks like Seagate has a little problem on their hands. Certain drive models, including some in their Barracuda and DiamondMax lines have a firmware bug that can cause data loss.

You can download a utility to see exactly what drive you have and then look here to see if it's in their list. If it is, contact Seagate for the appropriate firmware update.

According to the Register, Seagate is offering free data recovery services in certain circumstances.

It's probably a good time to make sure your backup is working.
