Seagate Model SRD00F1 2TB External HDD connected to mid 2010- 27” iMac running OS Mavericks 10.9.5
Hi.. looking for suggestions how to remedy:
A) recover or restore function
B) brute force delete or wipe clean personal data
On a 2TB Seagate External HDD that after 3 weeks has stopped responding to my iMac - no light, no recognition. Can hear it spinning and attempting to read/write to no avail.
Is not recognized by finder any longer, nor Disk Manager..
I purchased at costco and am happy to return for replacement but wont’ do this (will eat the cost) if i can’t ensure that the data has been swiped clean.
