Use the USB cable that comes with it to connect to your system. It is "plug & play" so you don't need to install it or anything.

You should be able to just plug it in to USB and read them since the harddrive has aleady been set up and used. The new machine should read it just like it will read a thumb drive you've saved files on. This is one of the big reasons why people like these external drives :) You can take them with you and use on another computer.

When I plug it into my computer, it says 'access denied' and prevents me from transferring my pictures to the goflex harddrive.


Sounds like Microsofts nuts user file access system. Try connecting to a non-windows machine i.e Linux - if you see the files, that's your problem.

This is an excerpt from the file concerning NOT using the pogoplug...

Accessing GoFlex Net Without Using the Pogoplug Service (Windows)
You can access the drives connected to GoFlex Net without using the Pogoplug Web
interface. Follow these steps to set up local network access.
1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Network or right-click My Network Places >
Explore.
An Explorer window opens showing all computers on your network.
2. Locate and then double-click the computer name associated with GoFlex Net.
NOTE: Your GoFlex Net name starts with the letters "FADS" followed by the last six
alphanumeric characters of its MAC address. This 12 digit address, preceded by "MAC:",
is printed on the label on the bottom of GoFlex Net.
You can now access each drive connected to GoFlex Net. Access is regulated by the file
sharing permissions you set using the Pogoplug service.

Hope this helps...

I have downloaded the files from my old computer to the Seagate hard drive. How do I transfer those files to the new computer?


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.

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 find the files that have been saved on my seagate freeagant goflex desk 2TB drive


Hi there babyface,

You just have to plugin your Seagate FreeAgent to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. Once plugged in power the seagate on and your computer should pop up a notification, usually in the lower right corner of your computer screen, saying that it has detected a new USB device. Next, right click your Windows Start button and choose Explore to Open Windows Explorer. Once the window opens, look for the drive letter associated with your Seagate FreeAgent under "My Computer" or "Computer" located on the left pane. Click for that drive to show the contents on the right side of the window. Thats it!

If you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.
