      Failed after 3 months and very little use. Apple won't touch it or exchange

      Having used this drive for a few months very in frequently, it appears to be dead. It will not mount from any of my mac computers running Yosemite and Mavericks Having used this drive for a few months very in frequently, it appears to be dead. It will not mount from any of my mac computers running Yosemite and Mavericks. The blue light does not come on, but there is a tiny flicker when I connect the power. I bought it 30th September 2014, 4 months ago so Apple will not touch it, exchange it or refund as it is third party. Am awaiting for a response from Lacie who only deal with such issues via their website. I hope I at least get my data back somehow.

      Dead after 5 weeks and Apple washed their hands of it !!

The light wouldn't come on and the drive wouldn't mount. Apple wouldn't touch it. I had to go to Lacie but all I got was an automated website. In order to retrieve my data I had to send the drive to Seagate (a Lacie company) who charged me £500 to retrieve the data. Annoyingly I purchased the drive because I was worried about my old hard drives (2 years old) failing! If you value your data DO NOT buy this drive. As an Apple business customer I expected more.
