Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive
Today I received a 2TB portable external drive by Seagate. This is definitely a slim model, measuring only 12.1 mm thick. I have a standard gel ink pen just to show how thin it really is.
The drive itself uses a USB 3.0 connection and includes the required USB 3.0 cable. No external power is required like most standard portable external drives. The drive also includes a small instruction manual and pre-installed software on the drive itself. The software on the drive is Seagate’s automatic backup software, including social share and save features allow you to both upload files directly to social media websites and save directly from them to the external drive. In a couple of the tests I ran, it seems to be faster just to upload and save files manually to and from social media websites like Facebook or YouTube.
The backup portion of the software is excellent to have, especially for someone who doesn’t want to mess around finding another software package. The drive also comes with plenty of instructions on how to setup and configure your backup schedule.
