You can either manually copy files by launching windows explorer (right click on the start button, select "explore"), navigating to your files, select the files, hold down CTRL and then tap C to copy, and then navigate to the FreeAgent External Drive (It should be on the right side of Windows Explorer, named "Agent" or similar), and then hold CTRL, and tap the v button to paste.
Alternatively you can navigate to the FreeAgent drive, where there should be a backup program. Launch the program, enter in the details of what and when to backup, and let it run in the background.

I was copying files to my seagate freeagent drive. i noticed it had "read-only" for all files in that folder. i.e. everything. so i unchecked read only file types and all of my files i had backed...


My analysis is that your drive might encountered a virus on it. Normally, the file types that were disappeared are the files that was severely infected to it. I suggest to back up your files by transferring the files from your external drive to another drive (could be a CPU internal hard drive or another external hard drive) so that it will not damage the other files. You might as well restart the pc after doing it so..

Seagate Freeagent not accessible - bad partition data. Any way to recover files?


There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

How do I transfer files to my seagate free agent?


Just left-click the file or folder you want to copy, choose copy.

Open My Computer and find the external drive, double click, once the folder opens just right-click and choose Paste.

That's pretty much it....or you could also drag files / folders to the drive.

Hope this helps.

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.
