New user of GoFlex Home NAS.
Happy with the unit, but I don't want to use the Memeo Backup software.
To keep it from doing backups, is it as simple as just Uninstalling the Memeo Instant Backup software from Win7?
I haven't found anything else that would seem to accomplish the same affect.
I don't want to screw this thing up.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes, just uninstall it (I suggest uninstalling the Seagate Dashboard at the same time) you don't need either.
If you want a good backup program try Cobian Backup

Thanks for the answer regarding the Memeo Instant Backup, but I've got a followup to your comment about Dashboard.
If I remove Seagate Dashboard, the GFH NAS doesn't show up in Windows Explorer as part of the network which means I can't select it as a source for "Map network drive".
How do I get around that if Dashboard is not installed?
By the way, you'll get a "solved" on this regardless of your answer to this followup, I just don't want the thread prematurely closed.

Windows networking should work fine without the Dashboard. Seagate' troubleshooting guide for the dashboard even suggests running without it if you are having problems. I haven't used the dashboard for around 10 months.
If the GFH isn't showing up in network;
It is best to set a static IP for your GFH either in your router or (and) in Seagate share preferences
You should be able to connect even if it doesn't show under network by typing \\goflex_home\ or \\yourgfhIPaddress\\ for example \\192.168.0.15\ in the explorer bar
In Win 7 , "remember my credentials" doesn't seem to work so you need to set in credential manager otherwise it will ask you for a password.
