5.0 out of 5 stars Backup those files. do it now., 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seagate STBV2000200 Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 desktop 3.5 inch external hard drive - Black (Personal Computers)
It's amazing just how many people still don’t back up their files. Thousands of photos, the kids, holidays, loves ones who have passed away. Your entire life, all sitting on your hard drive. With a precarious cup of coffee nearby and the cat climbing all over you wanting feeding. You get the picture.

Back up your files people, it’s not hard. Download a copy of sea tools, plug in this baby and make a full clone of all your machines and laptops. It’s really simple. And it’s not expensive.

Don’t leave it plugged in either, (in the same precarious place as your pc) put it back in the box and keep it safe well away from your computers, even give it to a neighbour. Then if the worst happens, fire, flood, or burglary, all your precious memories are safe and can be restored in a few hours.

You know it makes sense ….. but have you done it?

Hit buy and get on with it.

Does this provide full system backup?
Can one choose automatic, continuous backup to back up files as they are added or changed and saved?

Sea tools, which you can download free from Seagate (but you must use a Seagate drive). Will make a complete clone of your hard drive, and also create a boot-able recovery cd. It does not offer incremental backups, Seagate recommend Acronis true image software. Seagate's free software is basically a cut down version. EVen so its saves my skin a couple of times.

windows has built in options for full image backups, partial backups etc. and you can boot from the windows cd.

If you plug this item into a Mac then the mac will automatically ask if you want to use it as a time machine.

I still maintain that in order for a backup to be fully safe ,you need to store it away from the PC in question. hence I prefer to make a full backup image of every computer and put the drive in the safe. I also backup my docs over the network to a networked hard drive on a weekly basis just with a copy and paste. My docs and photos are backed up in three places.
