Question about Computers & Internet
If it was a retail version you bought, then it should have come with a disc and a manual.
If it didnt then go to Seagate's website and download the software and manual from there.
If you have it plugged in to the usb port and it is powered up, then really all you need to do is to click on 'my computer' and the drive will be shown in the Hard Disc Drive section, you can click on it and it will work exactly as your internal drive.
To move files to it, you can copy and paste, or right click on the file and use 'send to'
The software that, comes with the drive is normally backup software, so you can back up the contents of your main C:/ drive.
Hope this helps.
