How To Move Files From Mac To Seagate Hard Drive Without Reformatting It
Okay after a battle that went on for me with my iMac for over a year I finally won. 🙂 After asking many experts about my difficulties I could not seem to get any further on. I bought two different Seagate 4 TB hard drives but every time I tried to drag and drop a file from my iMac to my hard drive I was getting a no entry sign and nothing was happening.
The last straw was last night when I recorded a meeting on Camtasia and I got a message that my 1TB hard disk on my iMac was full. The computer froze up and I ended up messing around two hours deleting some unknown Camtasia files to be able to even use my computer again.
It just so happened inside one of my hard drives I found a little sign like this one
I clicked on it and found myself inside the software downloads page of the Seagate website on the page I found a link to software called Paragon driver it said on it.
Take advantage of read and write access without having to reformat your external drives, both on Windows and macOS.
So I clicked on it installed it on My iMac and now I can move my files from my computer to my hard drive by clicking and dragging them, the way it’s supposed to be.
It also now allows me to delete files off my hard drive which was not possible to do before installing this cool bit of software.
So let me save you years of messing around if you have a Seagate hard drive with an iMac and are having this problem just download this free software and your storage problems will be sorted hopefully permanently, or at least until you fill all your hard drives.
