    I have a question that is that backing up is to transfer all of my data from the PC and after that, if I want to, I can delete all my PC transferred folders and have a brand new space PC? Please answer me you re really helpful in this video. I bought this Seagate goflex desk 3.0 for over 5 years but really haven't used it.

    Oh my gosh he's adorable! Thanks buddy for the help. I do have a question, I need the room on my computer so when I've downloaded the information on the hard drive, can I erase the stuff off the computer?

    You explain things really well. Can you do a step by step video on how to create a system image and the easiest program to use. I'd like to backup my whole computer and I don't have a recovery medium. Thanks MyHitty 🙂

    I need your help — Backed p my PC ( windows 10)  with my Seagate  Backup Plus Slim 2 TB—followed instructions  and  clicked on back up now — however  I can not  view the files I backed up have a whole lot of numbers  but when I click on them  more numbers appear etc etc …:-(  I thought if I backed up all my files I could take my seagate along with my laptop when I travel and will be able to get to all my files while away from my office >?? Any advice you can give me ?? Also Can I delete everything I downloaded and start again ??? Thank you in advance for your help. Evie

    Thank you for making this. I have one question. When this backs up your computer, does it back up everything? files, programs and settings?
