I recently purchased a FreeAgent Desk ext drive and a Expansion Portable Drive. I also installed the Seagate manager software.
No issues doing a backup with the Free Agent Desk external drive. The Manager showed drive H: and backup was successful.
However, when I connect the Portable Drive - the manager shows drive I: but -
1. If I select the portable and do back-up. It immediately says "Back-up successful" without performing an actual back-up.
2. If I tried doing a Sync - but since my data is across multiple internal drives - it does not sync up all the internal drives (in fact wipes it out if it was done previously).
All I am trying to do is to have two separate back-up copies on two drives using the same Seagate Manager software.
Ideally I would like to do Back-up (#1), but if this is something the software does not allow - then why does Sync work across multiple internal drives?
