There are many free programs that will search common file extensions based on a selected file type, like you select "pictures" the program will search for *.jpg,*.jpeg,*.gif,*.png,*.raw, etc.
it doesnt catch all of them but this will narrow the results a lot, move everything to one folder (mark it "save" or something) then quickly look through remaining folders for anything left the programs missed and then delete (they also make programs that will delete empty folders so that may help too)
as far as "seagate programming" goes you don't really need anything on the external drive, whenever I get a new external or flash drive, first thing I do is format before any programs can run, they are mostly useless, anything that you find you want again you can download from the site.
as far as back up programs go, are you sure youre deleting the old backups as it backs up again?
I know some programs dont automatically and this fills space REALLY fast

Rather than worrying about the current backup...why not just do a new backup of the system, after you have removed unwanted fluff from it?

I'm going to have to start from scratch now. I am going to need a new hard drive. Once I do that I will save any pictures, documents, things I want on a USB flash, then delete everything and do a new backup. At least that's what I think I'm going to do.
