GetHuman-liz_smal's review of Seagate Technology customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Seagate Technology customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
GetHuman-liz_smal: Slow delete
GetHuman: Can you tell the rest of us a bit more from what happened on 11/30/17?
GetHuman-liz_smal: I have thousands of zero byte files that have been transferred to my Seagate Central NAS - deleting them is taking ages: delete several at once via Finder locks Finder up for over ** mins. Accessing the drive remotely deleting is quicker but only one file at a time. Does the drive do an indexing exercise and is this what is slowing it down?
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Seagate Technology. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Seagate Technology problem?
GetHuman-liz_smal: I'd give them a five out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
GetHuman-liz_smal: I'd give them a four out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about Seagate Technology's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
GetHuman-liz_smal: For that I would say one out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Seagate Technology customers?
GetHuman-liz_smal: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for Seagate Technology to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from GetHuman-liz_smal taken from his Seagate Technology customer service problem that occurred on November 30th, 2017.
