Hi guys

I have just purchased a Seagate 1tb USB HDD, and was interested in installing the free Seagate DiskWizard. I have been on the site and looked at the pdf instructions but it does not state it is Win 7 compatable? Does anyone know if it will work with Win7 (64 bit) as I don't really want to pay out for Acronis as the 2011 version seems to be a bit problematic?

Many thanks

DiscWizard is a free cut down version of Acronis.
If you have a Seagate drive visible on your system.

It works fine on my W7 64 Home premium laptop.

There may be a bug and it gets a bit unresponsive halfway through the backup wizard, but it corrects itself after a minute or so. Just wait.

Great utility apart from that.
