I have had other problems with this software. It doesn't appear to be very robust or flexible.
I use microsoft SyncToy. It hasn't failed me yet. It also has more options than just backup. It can synchronize the different computers that you may have accessing the same drive.

Tis true. The drive is just an external USB drive. Any software would work. Their externals have a hard code in the USB controller to show it's a Maxtor/Segate and it allows you to run their limited software.
There are other free software backup programs available.

Does anyone know why my FreeAgent Drive Manager Software creates those multiple History folders? It's seems to be creating multiple back-up folders using all my ext HDD space. I need some advice. Can someone help me?

I'm having this same issue, and for the life of me, I can't find Seagate's Drive manager software. I can find the SeaTools, but that doesn't seem to have any ability to manage the drive settings.
Do you know where I can get a copy of the drive manager software?

Regarding the location of the Software Manager download, I found it here:
(I found this by going to the menu to the left, selecting Support --> Downloads --> FreeAgent Drives --> Classic FreeAgent External Hard Drive.)
