The Windows backup program that comes with my Windows 7 works better then the Seagate program, and the Seagate support page was useless to me in telling me the exact software they have for me to use with this External Hard Drive.
Considering the deal I acquired through Overstock this product is surprisingly excellent! I have downloaded Grateful Dead concerts using the Optical Drive and the clarity and the space saving mechanisms are terrific! When you are in the market for an external disk drive this is the ticket!
The drive is great! Tons of storage! Only negative is it makes some noticeable noise while it's being used. I have several external drives that are mostly silent. The drive is hooked up to my tv entertainment PC and is about 7 feet from my couch and the sound of it searching for files is clearly audible. For me though it's not a deal breaker
