I just purchased the Seagate FreeAgent Go Flex and it comes pre loaded with a couple of files:

Seagate
UserGuides
Autorun
GoFlex
Mac Installer.dmg
Setup

I'm wondering if I can just delete this stuff as I plan on using this drive as a big jump drive and just dragging and dropping my scrapbooking supplies on to it, I have another Seagate drive that auto runs backup on my computer so I don't need this one to.

No, please don't! Most of the files on it are important if you ever decide to use it for backup, and the others don't take that much space. If they just "bug you," then I recommend you create a folder z_SeagateInstallation, and drag everything into it. The z_ assures this will be the last folder on the list, after any other folders you place ont he drive.

I've deleted them and haven't had any trouble, but then I don't ever want to use that software for my back-ups.

Thanks, I don't want to use it for backup, I have a second bigger hard drive always attached to my PC for backing my PC up, this one was strictly to use for my Scrapbooking stuff and a drag and drop

Plus, the other hard drive I have is a Seagate as well and I hate the Memeo software that came with it lol

and thanks for the feedback ladies :D
