Seagate FA GoFlex Desk external hardrive doesn't show in "My Computer"
I reimaged my computer because I was having a whole bunch of trubble with it (no of which really matter now). After reimaging I tried to access some of the files I saved on my external hard drive, but no matter what I tried I could not get access to the files.
The drive appears in device Manager and in the USB Device pages, and I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drive. But for some reason I just can't access the device. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, or even how to manually launch the external hard drive, I would be extremely greatful. If you need more info. let me know.

Sorry was out with the family for TG
Alright right click my computer choose manage.
on the left choose disk management and look for the drive in question.
If it shows there, it is likely you just need to assign it a drive letter.
You can also look over the microsoft article on it here.
(note it won't always show up under drives as shown there, but apparently you can see yours just not access it)
