Yesterday I bougt 2 FreeAgent GoFlex 500GB portable drives from Costco.
My intention is to use one drive as a 500gb external HD to store only my iTunes music (360gb).
The second I want to use as a portable drive on which I backup data from my office computer and restore onto my home computer.
I have only opened on package.
I followed the instructions for registering.
I received an email thanking me for registering.
However, every time I try to open the hard drive, the registration sequence begins.
That is issue number 1...
How can I stop the registration process from occurring each time I try to open the drive?
The second issue, may be related to issue #1, I do not wish to have all the pre-installed software on the drive. How can I wipe the HD clean so that it becomes a blank external hard drive so that I can load only my music files onto it?
I'm not opening the second package until I can resolve the above issues.
Thank you for your help.

You can reformat the drive this way - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/C
That should take care of both issues, hopefully.
