The Seagate FreeAgent software, specifically the Seagate Manager, is the support program that comes with most of Seagate's line of external hard drives. Key features include settings, backup, syncing and security.
Seagate manufactures the FreeAgent Xtreme, Desk and Go family of hard drives. The Seagate Manager is pre-installed on FreeAgent devices designed for Windows operating systems only. The program is not available for computers that run on Mac operating systems.
The Seagate Manager enables users to diagnose the overall health of their devices, control the drive's lights, regulate drive spindown times and check for updates. The software is also equipped with 256-AES software encryption functionality that provides protection against unauthorized access of private data.
