Seagate drive wont recognize drives on my computer
I have an older Toshiba running Vista. Have a Seagate 500GB external hard drive. I need to backup both my computer's partitioned drive (C and E) but the Seagate doesn't recognize either one. Seagate shows up as a drive on the Seagate manager, but not my computer's drives. I bought the Seagate a couple of years ago and haven't used it since. Probably operator error... but I still can't figure out where to access my machine's drives. Help, please. Thanks! Jo
Seagate Manager recognises only Seagate or Maxtor branded hard drives.
The drive(s) inside your Toshiba are most likely a non-Seagate brand.
if you want to back up your drives C: and E: to your external drive you will need to use third-party backup software or perform backups manually.
If you're running Windows 7, it has a built-in backup tool:
