Seagate Backup Plus Slim Hard Drive.Problem.

  bernvs 15:43 17 Nov 2014

I'm using a Laptop running Windows Vista. I have tried umpteen times to activate the Dashboard facility without success. Each time I get to the end of the procedure and it says the install is finished and I click to start, it tells me "An unknown error has occurred. Please restart Dashboard and try again." On one occasion at the end of an install it called up Windows Explorer and asked me to 'unblock' so I did, which prompted a warning suggesting this was not a good move, so I cancelled only to get the above unknown error message again. I wanted to back-up 2 smaller drives which are nearly full. I would like to use the Dashboard but if all else fails could I just copy their contents across?

If you decide to give up on dashboard, I would format the USB ie an empty disc. Then you can easily copy to it without wasting space for Dashboard etc.
