Are you sure it's using the eSATA drive and not your internal hard drive?

If its the Free Agent seagate, then there is your reason, they are crap and overheat.

I've been using a 750 GB Seagate Freeagent Pro since we first got the HR20 about 4 months ago. About 2 weeks after getting the HR20 and Freeagent all recorded shows on the Freeagent disappeared. I don't remember if there was a reset, and I don't think it coincided with a software update. At that point I was pretty nervous about the reliability of my setup (HR20 + Freeagent), but since then we've had no problems, thankfully. Keeping our fingers crossed...

i've got the FAP + HR20 and running good for 2 months. but i agree the FAP runs hot, so i added 2 small external fans which keeps it cool to the touch. i am nervous about losing everything some day though. i think we all are. i've done resets without issue and nervous whenever there's a software update. but so far so good. not that any of this helps the original poster, just sharing the info

I just had everything erased on my Seagate DB35 with and Antec enlosure. I'm thinking about just replacing the internal drive with my 750GB and eliminating ESATA.
