Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I recently backed up my entire computer onto the Seagate Free Agent 250GB. I had to get my laptop re-imaged, whiping out all of my information. I had to this last year which is why I assumed it would work.
When I plug in the external hard drive I can see it on my (Mac) desktop. When I open the hard drive I can see all the saved backups that I have done in the last nine months, but after that there is nothing. No photographs, no huge Indesign files, no autocad files, nothing.
Its like it is reading my current computers data. I dont think it ever backed up my information since it now says it is using only 10GB...the size of maybe half of one of my files.
Please Help. Is there a setting messed up, is it possible my data is still somehwere on the external hard drive
Make sure you have both USB connectors of the Seagate Y cable plugged into the computer (yes - two USB ports are used up)
It's possible that the drive is not fully powered and stuff on it doesnt show up. You need to use two from your computer to give the drive enough juice.
