Poor quality hard drive

Summary: I used this as a backup for my photography, after 5 months it started freezing my computer and eventually failed completely. It crashed my Macbook Pro twice and actually crashed the tech company's computer, too. Lost everything on it. Don't invest in this hard drive.
Summary: Well, first off, this device only has 465GB on it, not 500GB. So I've been cheated out of 35GB. Also I have an Acer laptop with Windows 8, and even though it connects with no problem, I have trouble whenever I right click on it or in it for options. The window just stops responding then closes. So I can't create folders, read document info, or anything like that. I had to organize my stuff and create folders on my desktop for me to drag onto the Seagate.
Summary: I bought mine this past June. It worked fine until a few days ago. I had all my movies, entire life's photo collection, my entire iTunes collection and all of my important documents on it, including the sound files for the music software program Sibelius. I opened Sibelius the other day and that crashed over and over and then I couldn't open up my Final Cut Pro. When I went to eject the disc, the icon wouldn't disappear. Then the computer crashed.
