Same way as you delete any other file unless it's locked, when that happens to me I bring out my big bro the format tool.

I wouldn't know what to delete. If I open the drive in Windows Explorer, there are directories I recognize from my hard drive and others like "boot" and Utilities that I don't. They there directories for "Seagate" and "Seagate Backup". Seagate Backup has two directories: KEE-TECRA and KEE-TECRA(1) as well as Archive. When I viiew file details, I really can't find current dates despite backing up last night. The backups say "complete" so I'm assuming they work.

The ones not to delete are the software ones, these are labelled Seagate Manager etc, the rest in yellow folders should just be ones you've written, simple delete should get rid of them, and empty the re-cycle bin before disconnecting the FA.

When you open your drive, all Files/Folders are supposedly arranged by "Date Created/Modified", in the order of earliest to most recent date. If not, depending on your OS, select "View" > "Arrange Icons By" > "Date Created/Modified". You'll probably see KEE-TECRA is arranged before KEE-TECRA(1).
In order to confirm this arrangement, right click each folder, then "Properties" to see "Date Created/Modified". Similarly, you can use this tip to check files in those folders.
Additionally, you would also be able to identify which files are backups by looking at their extension (a three-letter word that follows the filename and a dot) such as "xxxx.tib" created by SeagateDiscWizard.
By now, you can tell which ones are backups and which ones are older than the others.

Can you do a properties screen shot of it?
