Once they are backed up I recommend doing a restore and you can find that article below.

Download PS program onto new pc.

Upload 17data directory files from Seagate to new pc under C:/ProWin17/17data.

then in HomeBase you have to ... I forgot:  Under TuneUp / Maint, one of them will IMPORT or fix your newly loaded data, 1 at a time, so it can take time.  Then your data will show today as 'last modified' date
