Memeo Instant Backup is not detecting the connection to my laptop, but my laptop detects the connection to my FreeAgent GoFlex

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or

if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver

if this fails to fix the problem

check usb leads for secure dust free seating

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable

just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

hope this helps

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

My pictures are not being backed up. Memeo gives message stating failed to back-up. Error (9) is displayed

Failed backups can usually be traced to your antivirus running in the backgound. if you have any active antivirus and spyware detection running then stop them before you backup. Should work ok then.

First, extract all data that you have on the hard-drive, while you still can.

Seagate's web-site suggests that you first download and run Seagate's "Drive Fitness Tool", which exercises the disk-drive, and produces a "fitness" report. If it fails, then delete all your "private" files, and either take the drive back to the retail location where you bought it, or get an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) from Seagate, to get permission from Seagate to return the drive to them, for them to analyze the disk, and probably replace it.

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.
