Remove unwanted backups


Format Hard drive and them backup only 1 time. In the future, create an additional backup and then after that delete the oldest backup. I backup my system about every month.

Hitachi backup saysproblem in windows 7 due to bit locker


You will always have problems to backup encripted drives, unless the backup software specifically supports the encryption software.

Usually you can to try to "mount" the drive as a unencrypted drive and run the backup on that drive.

Alternatively, use HD partition backup software (ex: DriveSnapshot, EaseUS, Paragon, etc...).

I only want to backup new information but the drive is backing up the entire hard drive each time. How do I change this?


Set your backup program to only backup the folders you need. You have it set to backup the drive. If your set up is to backup only "New" info, then the program needs to scan the drive to find out what is new.

My drive is full so it won't back up anymore!


Check the backup settings in the software that came with the device. You may be saving every backup instead of saving incrementally. An incremental backup will back up the files that have changed after doing one full backup.
You can also view the files on the drive through Windows Explorer.
The files should be dated. Delete the oldest files making sure that they seem to be the same size as the next oldest file.
If your computer is not faulty, and the files on the backup are not the only place that they are copied, you can start over with the backup drive, change the backup settings and create an incremental backup routine.
Depending on the size in Gigabytes of the backup drive, you are limited to the amount of data you can back up.
Example:
If you have a 500Gigabyte drive in your computer and the external backup drive is 250 Gigabytes,a full system backup will not fit.
Go to Windows Explorer, Click on My Computer and view the available space and total size for each drive.

How do i clone my hard drive onto an external hard drive


Are you using Windows? If you are using Windows, go to Start => Programs => Accessories => System Tools => Backup. In the backup wizard that opens, choose which backup type you want and you can choose your backup destination. Choose your Seagate Expansion external drive for your backup location so that Windows can store an image of your current system into your external drive.

Two backup (one external hard drive)


Yes, that is possible. Normally what a backup does, is create a folder where it stores it's configurations and the data. If you create another backup and you name the backup differently, it will create a second folder.

Having said that multiple backups from the same PC, to the drive is also possible, because you create a profile for each backup and as long as the profile name is different it will not effect the other.

I want to backup my computers (4) and have maxtor partitioned and used at purchase time, but now when I connect it I get no prompts or choice of hard drive to back up. How do I go about back up?


You have a varity of option to do your backup depending on the type of backup you want to do.
1 Documents and folders
To backup your document and folders you can just copy the Documents and folders to the external drive.
You could also use the backuo feature of the Operating system you have like windows backup to backup your documents and folders.
2 System backup of your system.
You can not use a copy accross to do the complete backup of your system. You can use the windows backup to do this or a third party backup software.
Windows Back for Windows 7.
Click on Start ----- Controll Panel ----- System and Security ------- Set up Backup ------ Select where you want to save your backup ( the external Drive you connected to your system) in the box ------ Next ----- Choose the files or drive you want to backup and click next ------- Review your backup settings and save settings and run back.

This will save your files to the external drive you added to your system.

Seagate 250G running out of space


creat incremental backup rather than complete fresh backup.
empty trash can.
either way, it's possible the backup drive uses up more than working drive especially adding/deleting files alot between backup's.
