Bought this drive to keep an ongoing backup of my main data drive. But I cannot select the folders that I want to backup. The C drive is auto-chosen along with Mail (which doesn't seem to recognize my Outlook). And it says to drag and drop other folders I want to backup, but these folders will not "stick" to the backup list. I deleted the Memeo software that came with the drive and reinstalled, but no change. A backup drive is not much use if it can't backup the data that I need it to.

By default, the memeo automatically selects the C drive...which it will back up all of the pictures, music, docs, vids, etc from all of the C drive folders that it can....
Make sure you delete the backup plan and choose the folders before pressing "start backup" OR...(this would be my recommendation) try Seagate Manager.
It allows you to go in and choose specifically which folders you want and don't want to be included in the backup. It is still focused on getting the same types of files as memeo (pics, docs, vids, etc) but there's some more customization to it. Only other thing to it is that it runs on a schedule vs continuously but you can run a backup at any time by pressing the backup now button in the backup tab.
