The GoFlex ultra-portable drive makes it easy to store, automatically and continuously backup and encrypt all your files with its preloaded software and plug-and-play USB 2.0 connectivity. But this is no ordinary external drive. As the core of the GoFlex Storage System, the GoFlex ultra-portable drive is the world’s most upgradeable external drive allowing it to deliver a truly customisable experience.
Use the standard USB 2.0 interface or upgrade to USB 3.0, FireWire 800 or powered eSATA by pairing the drive with the appropriate GoFlex upgrade cable (USB 3.0, FireWire 800 and powered eSATA cables sold separately).
With the included NTFS driver for Mac, you can now interchangeably store and access files from PC and Mac computers without reformatting. The NTFS driver is simply installed once on your Mac computer, allowing it to access and store files in a PC compatible format (reformatting to HFS+ required to use backup software for Mac or Time Machine software).
The GoFlex ultra-portable drive is the heart of the GoFlex Storage System, and by combining it with other GoFlex Storage System products you can enjoy your content on your TV, access files from any PC or Mac computer on your network, from a mobile device or via the internet while on-the-go.
