Seagate Manager


Seagate Manager is a software program developed by Seagate Technology. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named maxutilities.exe. The setup package generally installs about 40 files and is usually about 19.58 MB (20,527,089 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of those who have this installed, most are running it on Windows 7 (SP1). While about 83% of users of Seagate Manager come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada.
