Since installing Windows 10 my Seagate external drive is not working properly. Was working fine under Windows 7.

Is there a compatibility problem? Reinstalling the Manager software seemed to exacerbate the problem!

In some cases, the update procedure messes things up, and errors could happen. However, you should't worry now that the application is working and the drive is recognized, but for the future, try downloading the Seagate Manager exactly for the version of Windows installed. Windows 7 version will do, but you should replace it with the newer one, when the developer releases it.

Similar problems - Seagate 'sees' my Seagate external drive but when I try to backup from Seagate dashboard it says there's no drive attached!

No software listed for Windows10.

Installed Seagate DiscWizrd (will allow a manual backup) but need to buy full version for all features - clicked the link and nothing happens!
