Published today from Petapixel is a warning regarding bad hard drives from Seagate.
Seagate was hit with a class action lawsuit today by consumers who claim that the company’s hard drives “failed to live up to the advertised promises” by failing and causing the loss of data. While it is extremely important to backup all computer devices, we need to be cautious of the quality of the devices we use to store our photos and data.
If you do have a Seagate hard drive and have been experiencing some difficulties, I would suggest contacting the law firm in the article. But more importantly, get yourself another external hard drive and start backing up.
