Manage Your Storage Drives

You can have multiple storage drives connected to your computer and managed through Seagate Dashboard.

  • To view the storage capacity of a drive, move the cursor over a drive image on the left side of the Home page. An information window appears.
  • To manage the drive, click the drive image on the left side of the Home page. The drive’s Info, Manage, and Support tabs appear. Here you can:
    • Control the LED light
    • Set the power-saving mode (Windows only)
    • Access support for your drive
    • Generate thumbnails

A smart copy plan automatically generates thumbnails the first time you set up a plan. However, you can also generate video thumbnails manually.
