I've owned 3-4 Seagate external HDDs in the last 7 years and almost all of them have failed terribly after a while.
Are seagate HDDs more prone to failure?
Has anyone here tried Western Digital's HDDs? Are they any better?

I am too using the Seagate HDD and it is working fine from a long.

Have you tried check disk command to check your drive's status? If not tried yet then i would suggest you to give it a shot, hope it will work for you.
