Welcome to Fixya

  1. Download the FreeAgentCN.ZIP file to your Windows Desktop.
  2. Double click the FreeAgentCN.ZIP file and extract the file to a new folder called Seagate temp.
    Extraction steps may vary depending on the extraction tool loaded on your PC. These steps are for the default tool in Windows.
    1. Once the file is open (double click on the file) click the Extract All Files button in the tool bar.
    2. Enter C:\Seagate temp\ when asked for a destination. Then click Extract.
  3. Browse to the Seagate temp folder and double click the InstallSeagateManager.exe file.
  4. Choose a language to start the install.
Download FreeAgent Software .ZIP file (for Windows)

Here's the manual of your Device. Go to page 12 for procedures on how to do the backup.

Remove whatever USB cables in the front USB ports below the DVD. Then try starting it should work. If not remove USB from the rear one at a time. Once it restarts replace USB cables into ports.

HI! I just bought a free agent 1TB to USB 2.0.

I'm not familiar with Carbonite but can't see why you couldn't use it to backup your new drive provided your PC just sees out as an ordinary (if external) drive. As for USB compatibility, the USB specification is backward compatable so your drive should work fine, if slower, when connected to a USB 1.0 port.

Hope that helps.
