Paragon Driver - Installation

 

You can use the Seagate drive between both Windows and Mac operating systems. You will need to download a driver to get full functionality out of the drives. The driver you will need is depends on which Seagate drive you purchased originally. If you purchased a ‘For Mac’ drive you will need to install the HFS+ driver on your Windows computer. If your drive purchased the other version of Backup Plus or GoFlex you will need to install the NTFS driver on your Mac computer.
