So, do you mean that you deleted the files that are meant to install the bundled software?
Here is the software: http://www.seagate.com/support/software/dashboard/
Here's the info for making the drive compatible between PC and Mac.

yes.. i already downloaded it and i'm confirming if its the same as the bundled that comes with the drive.. with regards with the use for windows and mac.. i've already chose the mac only but decided to change it to mac and windows, sadly i don't and can't find a way to revert it back.. that's why i'm asking how to.. thanks..

Yes, it is the same.
To change it back, make sure you have the software saved on your computer's C: drive somewhere, like the Desktop.
Then connect the drive to a Windows PC and reformat it:
(Use the "quick format" option.)
Then reload the software back on it, safely remove it from the PC, and then you can start over again with the Mac.
