  1. Thanks for the comments. I think at this point there's nothing that can be done if the company wasn't able to restore it.
  2. A lot of things were already tried. Also, it's a enclosure connected through firewire. There are 2 drives inside connected in RAID. I do have docking station but it won't help here. A number of things were already discussed in this forum above and in other forums. Thanks for feedback.
  3. The problem is that my computer doesn't see the drive when I connect it.
  4. No luck with the 2nd drive. Received "Due to the severity of the media damage on your drive, I'm afraid in this case nothing was recoverable" response.
  5. I currently have 2 drives for backups, a backup of a backup if you will.
  6. Got a 2TB drive from SeaGate. It appears about 120GB of data was "recovered". I went through every single file and none can be used. Spoke with number of people at Seagate, they consider it as a failed recovery and there's nothing else that can be done. From their perspective the drive was in a very bad shape as it might've been fried due to power surge or something like that. At this time waiting for news on my second drive. Hopefully more luck with it.
  7. Quick update: Just got an update from SeaGate that the data from one of my drives have been recovered without specifying how much data. They did say that the data will not be organized in the same folder structure as I had it. They are sending the data back to me now while working on the other drive. I'm excited.
  8. Most if not all youtube videos resolve issues that are documented in the provided link above: https://www.cleverfiles.com/howto/100-disk-usage-windows-10.html. As I mentioned none of these resolve the problem.
  9. I do have some computers that have SSD and the same issue persists.
  10. I use "Hard Disk Sentinel Pro" to find out the health of the drives. they are all healthy.
  11. Everything described in the link has already been attempted. No changes.
  12. That is correct. The issue is specific to Disk and not CPU and it does last about 10 minutes and not seconds. I'm aware of the oddity on the CPU tab that usually lasts about a second, but this is not what I'm inquiring.
  13. I'm very good around computers but lately I'm very stumbled with the new computers that are being sold. I have a couple of computers that are always at 100% usage for at least 10 minutes after boot up. I went through most of the things that I can think of, like checking antivirus, malware (not present), Search service, start up items, etc. The thing is there are other computes that are exactly the same don't have the same issue. They are all set up exactly the same. All have the latest drivers, Windows Updates, etc. I'm just stumbled why.
  14. Thank you all for your comments. I contacted SeaGate who apparently purchased LaCie some time ago and they were able to accommodate data recovery free of charge. I sent them my drives last week, so we'll see what happens.
