The Seagate Backup Plus desktop allows individuals to transfer large files quickly and it is easy to use. It can also backup social media, online photos, movies and so much more because of its faster transfer speeds and 2x larger capacity than traditional portable drives. This model comes preloaded with Seagate Dashboard, includes a quick start guide, USB 3.0 adapter with capacity gauge and a 5-foot USB 3.0 cable.
Great protection in case of system failure. The dashboard makes it easy to back up files quickly or to recover individual files. It is super fast and runs cool even after an hour of continuous backup. The unit runs pretty quietly and is super easy to setup even for the first time thanks to the user manual. Works with either a PC or a MAC.
The Dashboard makes it easy to backup photos and videos form social media websites such as Facebook so pictures that you have taken using your smart phone and placed on Facebook can be then be backed up using this unit.
Does not come with a stand so if you stand it upright there is the possibility of the unit tipping over.
The Bottom Line:
PC and MAC users that have a USB 3.0 port will love the speedy storage capability for storing music files, photos, movies and for doing backups. The software interface is very easy to use. The user-friendly Dashboard gives this unit an unfair advantage over other external hard drives.
