You shouldn't need an instruction manual. Insert the USB plug into a USB port. Windows will recognize a new device. Then go to "My Computer". Find the USB drive, right-click on it and choose format. You probably want to format it as FAT32 if you are going to use this drive on multiple computers (for compatibility), otherwise format in NTFS.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

How do I work on my data on the Seagate FreeAgent 2TB GoFlex Desktop USB 2.0 Hard Drive as my computer memory is at capacity. I want to be able to use my external hard drive as an extension of my computer...


Assuming you are using a Windows operating system, you can just plug it into your computer's USB ports, and the computer will recognise it as another hard drive.

Instructions:
Double-click on 'My Computer' and take note of what drive letters are there (C:, D:, etc.) before you plug in the Seagate Freeagent.
Plug in the Seagate Freeagent. You'll see the new drive, likely E: or F: (depending on what is already there before you plugged in the Seagate Freeagent)
Double-click on the new drive, and it'll open up and you'll see the files stored on that drive. You can drag and drop files and save to this drive like any other folder on your computer.

Open up the control panel with the drive connected, open administrative tools and computer management. Select storage and see if the drive is listed there. It will probably let you format it from there.

Saving to the seagate portable device


Hi,

The SeaGate software, can do a backup but generally your drive once formatted will show up as a regular Hard Drive assigned a normal drive letter.

If it's not there you may need to format it first or install the Freeagent software.

Tryi8ng to install portable 120GB hard drive (seagate)


If your USB ports do not supply enough power (older computers) then the drive may fail to show up in My Computer.
The Seagate should have a special Y cable. There are two USB connectors on one end that must both plug into your computer - one for data and power - the other for power only. The other end of the cable has the mini USB which plugs into the Seagate.
