I have just purchased a Seagate 500GB Desktop hard drive


There is software preloaded on the disk. If you have AutoPlay turned off in your system, it won't start automatically when you connect the drive. Just go to MyComputer and open the drive and you will find a setup file there to install the backup software (I think it's called Launch.exe).

Freeagent with server 2003 not working


Seems that Seagate did not release a version of software which could be used on a Windows Server 2003 platform. I checked their web site at the following link & didn't find any software supported on Windows Server 2003:
