I have a Seagate Free Agent 500GB external hard drive which I use as a backup drive for another 500GB hard drive full of music/pics/video files. I have been using Seagate Manager through a laptop but after a lot of trying I can't seem to figure out how to just overwrite the previous backup copy to reflect the addition of a couple albums for example. In other words, the backup function saves previous backups which takes up more room on the hard drive, correct? There doesn't seem to be a way to sync the 2 drives to just reflect the current content of the drive I'm copying. Hope that makes sense. Thanks for any help!

The Seagate Manager can do sync, yes.

Thanks for the reply. I know Seagate Manager can sync; however when I have the 2 external drives hooked up to the laptop on which I run Manager, sync is not an option (i.e. when I select the Seagate drive as my backup drive). Am I missing something?

Here is some more info along these lines:
Other forum users, such as MrButkus, have talked about third-party backup/sync softwares with which they have had good success. Those might be good options for you.
