You can set up a Seagate Manager backup.

I have been able to restore data from my Go Flex drive simply by drag and drop. My windows Vista laptop died, so now I'm migrating to Windows 7.
The online Help for the Go Flex software was useless. It's last step said to select a Restore option that didn't exist. Also, I think there should be a clear explanation of the organization of the history folders. As far as I can tell, the history folders only contain older versions of a file. The files under your computer's name seem to be always a set of the most recent versions (as of the last update). Maybe I just didn't read the explanation correctly under the stress of losing my computer.
I hope somebody will correct me if my assumptions are wrong.
I lost very little data. Getting the new software versions configured the way I had them (Outlook for one) has been a royal pain.
Anyway, I am patting myself on the back for having such a good backup plan. The situation could be a lot worse.
