Hi,how can i format my seagate freeagent goflex 750 to fat32 ?


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. Once you connect the harddrive on the computer go to my computer or computer then right click on the seagate drive then select format. On the window that will pop out on the screen select Fat32 then format the drive. Please use windows xp or 7 because vista don't have fat32 but exfat.
Thanks

How do i find the files that have been saved on my seagate freeagant goflex desk 2TB drive


Hi there babyface,

You just have to plugin your Seagate FreeAgent to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. Once plugged in power the seagate on and your computer should pop up a notification, usually in the lower right corner of your computer screen, saying that it has detected a new USB device. Next, right click your Windows Start button and choose Explore to Open Windows Explorer. Once the window opens, look for the drive letter associated with your Seagate FreeAgent under "My Computer" or "Computer" located on the left pane. Click for that drive to show the contents on the right side of the window. Thats it!

If you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

Installing 1tb External Hardrive from Freeagent onto Macbook Pro


I would be tempted to format the drive using the disk utility whch can be found under applications and then utilities once opened choose your drive in the left hand window and on the right hand side click on erase. If you are using the Seagate drive for the Mac only, format it as a Mac OS Extended (journaled) Choose your volume format and name and then erase. Hope this helps.

Seagate freedesktop agent 500gb, not detected on windows xp


I am facing the same same problem with my freeagent 750. It work some time, but most of the time it shows u in My Computer, but cannot enter. Couple of time if you run "chkdsk <Drive Letter>:/R" re-scans the entire hard disk and then it shows up. But that too stopped working now :-) Still hanging around for a resolution.
