I used a clean sweep Windows 7 installation, could that be why? how can I fix this? Im assuming I can transfer the files automatically, but Id rather find out whats wrong
I just performed a windows recommended back up, and it took 7 hours, sigh.plus ill prob end up deleting it because it took up 200GB on the free agent, and the windows back up is different compared to the free agent's bc i wont be able to add or remove single files manually, its all or nothing. i hope someone can help me find out how to use the free agent's back up again
Hi, so i'm assuming your using the Seagate Manager software install on your Windows 7 ???
If it's the first time you use it on the Windows 7, you'll have to choose the way you want the files in the "Parameters" tab of the "Seagate Manager". Parameters tab is kind of help to config the backup plan.
Check the boxes, choose the folders you need and after it will create a "Backup Plan" that you can use safely. Allow or not automatic backup using the tab on your right.
Hope this help...
You have two tab in Seagate Manager...One for "Backing up Now" and one for "Synchronize" if you have run both it might be the clue why it took 200gb instead of 110gb
Synchronize is your personal user, my docs.
