This is ridiculous. I have just spent hours with the same problem. I have files outside of "My Documents"
that it won't let me select for backup. I can select files from windows explorer and copy them directly, but tha
prevents me from using the "Backup Now" option and just backup the files I want backed up.
Seagate needs to fix this. Why on earth would they take it upon themselves to apply filters. Users of their
products need to be able to select whatever files they wish for backup. This limitation really, really, really
surprises me from a quality company like Seagate.
I'll try the other option some of you suggested. And thanks for posting it.

mlweiland, I actually installed the software (Maxtor) late last night. And it works beautifully! Thanks for the info. It even
provides a top level selection for 'My Favorites' used by Internet Explorer as well. I had also wanted to select
the .pst files that Outlook uses to store emails and other content. The original software wouldn't let me select
these files. The new software lets me select anything.
