Seagate Central - How to backup my Facebook photos and videos


Seagate Central can download and back up photos and videos from your Facebook account. This article explains.

Seagate Central can monitor and backup the content you have uploaded to one or more Facebook accounts.
Once you enable the Facebook backup, your videos and photos automatically download to Seagate Central.

Please follow this procedure to enable this feature:

  1. Login to the Seagate Central Assistant by typing your host name into the address bar of a web browser.
    For information on how to find your host name, see Document ID: 005247.
  2. Select the Social tab.
  3. Select Add a new account.


     
  4. Under Facebook User Name, enter the primary e-mail address for the Facebook account you wish to backup. If you are logged into the Seagate Central as an administrator, you may choose the Owner of the downloaded files.
  5. Select the destination Folder for the downloaded files.
    If you want to view your Facebook media while outside of your home using the Seagate Media app, you must select the Public folder.
    Select Public Folder to make the downloaded files accessible to anyone that can access the Seagate Central.
    Select Private Folder to make the downloaded files accessible only to the designated Owner.



    If you do not know what the primary Facebook e-mail address is, you can find it by logging in to www.facebook.com, clicking on the Facebook Settings menu in the upper right corner, then selecting Account Settings.
  6. When you have entered your choices, select Save.
    A Facebook login page displays.
  7. Enter your user information and password, then select Log In, to be directed back to the Social tab on your Seagate Central.
    The account displays on the left.



    A confirmation message appears temporarily across the bottom.
    The Seagate Central will now begin monitoring and downloading all the photos and videos from all the Facebook accounts you have added.  Allow some time for this process, depending on how much content the Facebook accounts contain.
