JACUSTOMER-fk5223ja- :

You've just sent me to a "Getting Started Windows" video...

Daniel Whelan :

Just below that

JACUSTOMER-fk5223ja- :

And aside from that the video says how to set up the Seagate. Its set up. But Time Machine can't see it. Time Machine can see my lenovo external hard drive, but not the Seagate Central.

Daniel Whelan :

Can you see your seagate drive on the desktop? can you see your lenovo on the desktop?

JACUSTOMER-fk5223ja- :

I can see the lenovo drive on the desktop. I can see the seagate drive in the finder, but not on the desktop.

Daniel Whelan :

There is a guide here

JACUSTOMER-fk5223ja- :

You think I didn't google and search all the guides myself?

JACUSTOMER-fk5223ja- :

JACUSTOMER-fk5223ja- :
