    Greetings. I have a Seagate FreeAgent Desk external hard drive.

    I used to be able to plug it into my laptop, and voila it automatically backed up all my files - and only those that were added or changed.

    I gave my laptop a fresh load of Windows 7, and now I can't find the driver disk (if I had one) for the FreeAgent. In any event, now I have to back up manually, and click and paste entire folders (rather than just files that had changed). And I'll be darned if I can find a solution on Seagate's website.

    I'd like to get back to the happy place where the FreeAgent detects new or changed files on my laptop, and automatically backs those up.

    Suggestions please?

    Never mind: figured it out:

    What do I do in the event that I lose my Seagate Manager software?

    You can always download the Seagate Manager software in the event that it is lost or deleted.
