You could try System Restore. If using XP see below:

To use the System Restore Wizard, make sure you're logged on as an administrator, and then follow these steps:
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.
After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.

The above info was "lifted" from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/getstarted/ballew_03may19.mspx


Hope that works for you

How do I get my Seagate drive to install all my computer work? It is a 1TB drive serial number NA75K753 .


u have not sufficiently defined what u want to do. I have no idea what "computer details" means.
My first suggestion would be to install Macrium Reflect Free. It can make a total IMAGE of ur computer. U can recover from anything with it. But u must do it on a schedule and keep no more than 2-3 images (they r big files). U can extract individual files or load the whole system onto a new drive.
My 2nd suggestion is to use windows explorer (file explorer in W8) to copy ur My Documents folder and picture & music folders to it. If the drive came with a backup program u may want to use that.

How do you back up files


Connect the hard drive to your PC with the USB cable, go to the 'my computer' page and click on the Seagate drive's icon to open it. Minimise the Seagate window and open the folder on your PC where the files are, then re-open the Seagate window, and then reduce it with the double square icon at top right of the page. Then you can just 'drag and drop' the files to copy the files straight onto the drive, or first make a folder on the Seagate to put them in. To copy them back to your PC, reverse the process. Hope this helps!

Itunes messed up my external hardrive


I doubt that iTunes really moved/reorganized files on your computer.

iTunest may have created its own "Table Of Contents", presenting a "view" of all your files.

Open "My Computer" and open your external hard-drive.
The files should be in "your" order.

Open "My Documents". Open "My Music".
The files should be in "your" order.


If iTunes really did "reorganize" your files, there's no way to "go back", because "Windows System Restore" does not automatically created time-stamped backups of your 'My Documents' folder (nor of any external disk-drive -- where would it put that much data???).

I am trying to hook up my USB so I can download songs i have saved in my computer.the installment process is not working


My sister has one of these, but instead of using a usb cord to the pc she uses a sd card and transfers her songs onto there. I suggest that you get an mircosd card and transfer the songs onto there and then put your microsd card in the slot for your Dare. Let me know how this goes.

Lost Data-Please Help


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.

Can't open files copied to my Seagate Free Agent Go


Ok, install Office onto your laptop and see how it goes. Don't be too panic striken Microsft in general allow one copy of the same program to be running on a desktop and a laptop at the same time on the same license.
It's a home/work thing, Laptop goes to work, desktop stays at home and you can't be using them both right =)

New Seagate 250gb with no software


1) I assume that by "software" you mean drivers??

This link is to the seagate downloads page:
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/

2) If by "software" you mean the contents of the drive, then my suggestion is that your friend may have moved the files off of it onto his Mac instead of copying them, and that you should ask him to move them back.

3) What operating system are you using ("Windows XP", "Vista")? Does your computer detect the drive (beep when you plug it in)? Have you tried this drive on another computer, other than your friend's? Does it still work on your friend's?

I can't help much without more info, sorry.
