Explains the backup feature in Seagate Dashboard with Seagate Central, which is called Protect and includes numerous options.

You can use the Seagate Dashboard to back up the information on all Windows computers in your home to the Seagate Central.
The default backup plan continuously copies all non-system information on your computer to Seagate Central.

You can also create a custom backup plan to protect your content on your schedule. Please see the Seagate Dashboard User Guide.
