Copy, Paste. Just choose what files you want to copy over, and WHERE you want to store them.

If I were you I would create a new folder on the desktop, right-click an open space, new folder.

Then highlight all your old files, right-click, copy. Open the "new folder", right-click empty space, paste.

SOURCE: I don't have an instruction manual for my Seagate 160 GB External

Well, if it is a USB Drive, you can locate the drive on your Computer. and using Windows explorer would be a lot easier, click on start, all programs, accessories, Then click Windows explorer, and on the left hand panel, you can then search your drives and located the data that you want to copy and paste. For example, I am going to copy my documents from my (C:) drive, and I then will paste onto my USB flash Disk Drive (J:)..you will see the files go from (C:) to (J:) drive once you start the process...thats it!

How to recove Seagate external hard drive data?


Probably, the new operating system cannot recognize your Seagate external hard drive. You can connect the Seagate external hard drive to another computer to copy data to another device. If the problem still exists, you might need to perform data recovery. You can free download the data recovery software: http://www.icare-recovery.com/seagate-recovery/seagate-external-cannot-be-recognized.html

How do I work on my data on the Seagate FreeAgent 2TB GoFlex Desktop USB 2.0 Hard Drive as my computer memory is at capacity. I want to be able to use my external hard drive as an extension of my computer...


Assuming you are using a Windows operating system, you can just plug it into your computer's USB ports, and the computer will recognise it as another hard drive.

Instructions:
Double-click on 'My Computer' and take note of what drive letters are there (C:, D:, etc.) before you plug in the Seagate Freeagent.
Plug in the Seagate Freeagent. You'll see the new drive, likely E: or F: (depending on what is already there before you plugged in the Seagate Freeagent)
Double-click on the new drive, and it'll open up and you'll see the files stored on that drive. You can drag and drop files and save to this drive like any other folder on your computer.

How do I transfer data from my hard drive to added external drive


you can this many different ways. The most straightforward is to go to the drive and select "folder and file options" in the view menu and selct "show hidden files", that way when you copy and paste you will get every single file. The other way is to use a program such as Acronis Tru Image and use the clone option. I am assuming that you want an image of your C:\ drive.

Seagate Free Agent Drive cannot be modified? Worked before...


Ok,

Sounds like it's one of three things then

Disk trouble from unplugging the usb while the unit is still "running" and not yet finalized. Running CHKDSK /? /F in the run box where ? = extrenal drives lettrer. Then restart the computer(done from windows PC with drive attached)

Shell trouble I have already advised a dozen or so people this week that if CHKDSK doesn't work, replace the shell with a new one and see if the hard drive works in the new shell.

Failed harddrive, of course this is always an option. If neither of the above suggestions works then it's possible the hdd has failed and you may need to send it to a pro if you have any files on it that need retreiving.

Hope this helps FixYa, if you need additional help just reply to this by adding a comment.
