I don't have an instruction manual for my Seagate 160 GB External

Well, if it is a USB Drive, you can locate the drive on your Computer. and using Windows explorer would be a lot easier, click on start, all programs, accessories, Then click Windows explorer, and on the left hand panel, you can then search your drives and located the data that you want to copy and paste. For example, I am going to copy my documents from my (C:) drive, and I then will paste onto my USB flash Disk Drive (J:) will see the files go from (C:) to (J:) drive once you start the process...thats it!
