After the initial backup the software continues to back up in increments, it's how it's designed to work.
You can also access the backup from system A on system B, unless you encrypt it. In that case you'd have to have the software installed here as well.
If you wish to back up files from system B to the same backup as system A's, you'd want to manually set the destination as that folder.

Ok, I did some more research on how Memeo acts when it's installed on multiple computers.
It's actually designed to work only with one system.
I would recommend that you install the Seagate Manager, because that software will perform the tasks you would like it to.

You should never use an external drive as a sole container of files. If these files are important make sure they are backed up to your laptop after you have edited them on you ultra portable. If you do not care if you lose the files then leaving them on the external is acceptable.
External drives should only be used as temporary/temporal backup solutions. They are notorious for failing and the failure is usually catastrophic for any files unless you are willing to pay hundreds for a data recovery service. Always make sure that any files contained on the external drive are backed up to an internal hard drive at the least and to CD/DVD/BlueRay media for a more permanent solution for static files. Copying to a drive raid array on a computer is really suggested since this allows for the failure of one of those drives and no data loss, as long as the computer and all components are not fried some time.
