Cannot install the FreeAgent Go500Gb to a machine with Server 2003 as a External disk for backup.

    Dear UWE
    At seagate support, I received a message answering that due to the internal policies the companies have, this portable HD can be used as an external drive (just connect and use it as another disk), but cannot install the synv and other applications. This sounds very logic tome. so what I did is install a mirror freeware in my server and do a manual sync to my seagate.
    I appreciate your help and will chech your solution too.

Installation isn't possible directly from the Harddisk.
Try download from http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/software/FreeAgentCN.zip 
Good Luck.

I have window server 2003 OS and 500 GB free agent desktop USB hard disk is not showing in my computer. So how can i rectify it?


I just finished a Chat exchange with Seagate Tech support. MS Server OS's are not supported for FreeAgent devices.

It appears that whatever drivers exist in the XP install that recognize the USB device connection are not the same in the MS Server environment.

I plan to check the USB device drivers from both systems and see if the XP USB device drivers will work on Server 2003.

I have just purchased a Seagate 500GB Desktop hard drive


There is software preloaded on the disk. If you have AutoPlay turned off in your system, it won't start automatically when you connect the drive. Just go to MyComputer and open the drive and you will find a setup file there to install the backup software (I think it's called Launch.exe).

Freeagent with server 2003 not working


Seems that Seagate did not release a version of software which could be used on a Windows Server 2003 platform. I checked their web site at the following link & didn't find any software supported on Windows Server 2003:
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=freeagent-downloads&vgnextoid=3723b5b59b7d5110VgnVCM100000f5ee0a0aRCRD

Sorry, but I can't help you with this one. Try contacting Seagat for this & see if they have a solution to your problem.

Segate 1TB not working with Windows 2003 Server


Is this an internal disk, or an external backup device? Two possible routes:-

Internal disk:-
Ok first thing: Does the BIOS see the drive? If not, try flashing the Server's BIOS to the latest version. Check that the system will support disks >500Gb. Try turning on LBA in the BIOS. It shouldnt affect it, but has been known to.
If its not showing here, its either faulty, dodgy cables, or not supported.

If its visible in the bios, great. Make sure you have at least one and preferably all the service packs installed. Gold (RC) only supports 500Gb drives.
Make sure you have Chipset drivers installed for the mobo. If its visible in the disk management console, then create a small disk, NTFS.

External backup device:-
Either you will need to install the software in 'compatibility mode' for xp, OR
dont use their software at all. Just plug the disk in, and it should appear as a removable device. Then use the windows backup tool to create a backup file on the external disk, and run a backup using that.
