    Seagate Backup Plus Drive Info Not Displayed in Explorer's Tiles Mode


    Hello, I am using Windows 10 Spring Creators Update.

    I have a minor but annoying issue with an external hard drive, and am hoping someone might know if this can fixed.

    I just installed a Seagate 4 TB Backup Plus portable external hard drive. It seems to be operating properly.

    That's not the issue, though.

    The issue is this: When I open Windows Explorer, which is in Tiles mode by default, the total and used space of the Seagate drive is not displayed. The total/used space of my C drive is displayed, and the total/used space of my other external hard drive is displayed.

    If I switch to Content or Details mode, the space date is displayed. I know I can right-click on the icon, go into Properties, and see the space information. I also use a freeware program called Tree Size Free that displays the drive's space information in greater detail.

    I'm just curious as to why the drive's space information isn't displayed, whereas other drives' information is. I'm assuming the issue is related to the drive itself and not Windows, but I was hoping someone might have some idea about this.

    Thank you! J. Danniel

  2. Seagate Backup Plus Slim and Windows 10

    I am able to backup my files using Seagate Backup Plus Slim. Windows 10 tells me my Seagate software is up to date. However I keep getting notifications to backup my files on the Windows 10 Notifications Board. Also Windows 10 does not allow me to add
    my Seagate Backup as an external device and seems not to be registering that I am already backing up my files to an the external Seagate hard drive. Any suggestions?

    Seagate Backup Plus

    Seagate Backup Plus 5 Tb drive shows up on my Windows 10 device manager but does not show up on the file history and scheduler does not work.

    Spent 2 hours with Seagate Tech support but said it's a Microsoft problem.

    How to use an external drive without any special software

    I chose not to install the bundled Seagate software, thinking I would use Win 10's own File History - but I don't even use that. (I really don't want an external drive constantly plugged in & constantly being written to.) I just copy/paste
    important files/downloads to the Seagate drive when necessary. Also, I make system images to it occasionally. So, I eventually deleted the Seagate software from the external drives.

    If you decide otherwise - & the software wasn't included on the drive - I'm sure you can download it at...
