Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Hi, I am using Windows XP on my PC and have 4 accounts set up. Why can't I see more than just my own 'My Documents' when setting up a backup with my new FreeAgent 250?
The " My documents" refers only to my user account (pete) and if I expand the C: icon it does not contain the "Documents and Settings" folder. As all my Photos are stored under the C: 'Documents and settings' folder along with the other 3 account's 'My Documents' it is essential that I can see all these folders when setting up the backup rules on the FreeAgent.
So my question is, how can I configure the FreeAgent to automatically backup all these files? Regards Pete
I don't know the software, but it sound to me like the other accounts have their documents folders set to private, or you have a limited account.
Either way you should go into user control panel and check the settings.
Start -> Control Panel -> Users
That's all I can suggest at this time.

You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer
click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer administrator you must have full control
click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box
then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP
click start right click on my computer select open Click start control panel scroll to folder options view place a tick in show hidden files folders and drives
Right click the icon of your usb drive (It should be E:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
