Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Wtih initial installation, the driver status icon was green and the automatic backup would occur daily with no problems. For some reason, the driver status icon is red and the automatic backup will not occur. Seagate support had me uninstall, then reinstall, unplugg, replugg the external harddrive, then complete a manual backup of my documents. The status icon said that the backup was successfull; however, the drive manager states that the last backup failed. Can you suggest any other solutions to this problem besides what has already been completed?
I assume Seagate suggested you "reinstall" the drivers. If that's the case, you may still need to refresh your computer's device list to properly identify the drive.
If you're running Windows you may try opening "Device Manager" and uninstalling the device from the list, then "detect hardware changes". This may make your computer redetect the drive like it's a new device, but may not.
I suggest phoning Seagate back and ask to talk to a knowledgable tech, not the scripted phoners.
What operating system ARE you running anyways?

I have bought a new seagate 500gb USB external portable hard disk. I find that initially the colour of the drive manager status icon was 'green' and turned 'red ' later.
What does the colour of the drive manager status icon indicate?
Does 'red' mean heated up or something?

Tips for a great answer:
Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.
