Seagate GoFlex Home Network Storage System 2Tb

I bought this on the understanding that it was a device that I could access wirelessly and transfer files into and out of it.

  1. It is a good backup device for my desktop which is wired to it permanantly through my Router and backs up all my work continuously.

  2. I can connect to it wirelessly with my Laptop and download files for viewing only. I cannot edit those files or upload additional ones into this drive. This difficult as I do a lot of entry away from home.

  3. I followed the instructions on the Help File and hardwired the Laptop to my router with the result it totally wiped all my Desktop Data and replaced it with that from the Laptop. Has anyone had experience of this system and can they help me?

Peter
