Solved Seagate plus backup problems

Specs: Windows 10
My previous back up device would only backup modified files. This device is backing up GBs of data at a time when I might have only added a few MB to the C drive- my documents. Consequently the seagate drive has used up over 2 Tb but my Pc drive has only used 450Gb. I have formatted the seagate drive but no joy, any ideas out there.

and this is one (of no doubt many) Seagate article about backup options.

Not knowing Seagate utility (I have Acronis) the link may not be specific to your version of Seagate; but may at least point you in the right direction?

Equally it may be that Seagate don't provide that incremental option which you had previously with other software?
