I used my 1 GB Seagate Free agent drive to back up selected files on my old computer. I bought a new computer. I want to get rid of the backed up files from my old computer and use the drive to begin backing up selected files on my new computer. The drive now seems to have backed up files from both computers and it won't back up all the files on the new computer. When I look at the file structure in Seagate Backup, it has a folder called Owner-313228B55 which looks like files from the old computer and a folder called Owner-PC which looks like a backup of only a portion of the files on the new computer. How do I make it just back up the new computer and get rid of the files from the old computer? Thanks for any help.

You can either format the drive and setup a new backup on the new computer or just locate the old computer's backup folder and delete it from the drive.
If you format the drive, it'll delete everything that is currently on there....or you can maintain what's currently on there and just delete the old comp's backup folder...whichever is easier for you.
