the press was so bad on Seagate .11 series drives in the 1-1.5TB range
that they were practically giving them away. They had a program
for free data recovery if you sent in your permanently-locked-up
drive. Not clear how many
firmware updates they had. Seems that people were not satisfied
that the firmware fix did anything other than throttle the
performance. Interesting coincidence that they also changed the
warranty from 5-years to, I think, three.
I stayed away from that whole mess.
Doesn't fat32 have a 4GB file size limit?
Big problem if you store DVD images
And files created on a PVR etc.
or large backup files on your external drive.
Those arent generally a problem, because the backup apps all allow for that limitation.
