Seagate Backup Plus, easy backup for your digital life on your computer and the cloud

The Seagate® Backup Plus desktop drive simplifies backup for consumers who want to protect their entire digital life locally, in the cloud or from social networks. Via the Seagate Dashboard, use the Protect function to set up a one-click plan or customize your scheduled local backup. Keep multiple copies of your files in case disaster strikes.

With the Save feature, user-generated content can be backed up from your favorite social networks. Many people now use their smartphones to capture priceless moments. While these devices are handy and readily available, storage is not their strong suit. Capture a memory, post it on a social networking site and let the Seagate Dashboard automatically back up any content posted. Even if the file gets accidentally deleted from the device, another copy can be waiting.

-4Tb Size
-LED indicators
-USB 2.0/3.0
-read/write speeds
-I find the included backup software a bit confusing
-no eSATA
Overall this drive has been great. Have nearly filled it all up with movies and TV shows. Bought for about $150 and at the time it was cheaper than an internal HDD. Recommended.

easy to setup, fast usb3, good value, quiet.
a very easy way to increase storage need. Just plug in a USB 3.0 port and everything is automatic configure. Drive show up instantly. speed is quite good for an external drive. average speed for single large 3GB file transfer is around 60MB/s and multiple files average transfer speed is about 30MB/s. And price is very reasonable. Quiet. Highly recommended upgrade for desktop external HD.
