The storage device is smaller and lighter than I expected (a good thing!) and I've backed up 2 devices, running Windows 10, leaving 500GB of space free. I have a fair number of photo and music files and have the sneaky feeling that the 2TB version may have been a better long term purchase for my needs. However, that's down to individual requirements, of course. The backups took some 2-4 hours per device using a USB 2 connection. The device works on the much faster USB 3 connection but is backwards compatible for older computers like mine.
Online reviews had some negative reports on all makes of external HDD drives that I looked at - faulty units, viruses, user error - who knows? In the end I went for the Seagate HDD, as it generally received a large number of favourable reviews, is a recognised brand, and comes with a 2 year warranty. I have used a small Iomega branded unit (storage is now too small) for years without any issues.
It is possible to purchase plans from Seagate that ensure the recovery of data from damaged or virus infected drives.
I followed the quick start guide and had the unit up and running without difficulty, although my laptop took 3 attempts to find the drive but the PC recognised it first time. There is no software included - everything is done on-line.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.
The lost star is because:
a) The Dashboard software that comes with it is too basic and usable only by people who are total novices regarding IT. Everyone else is much better off using any of several free backup programs available on the net (stuff like EaseUS Todo Backup Free or several others out there)
b) as the drive comes with 200 GB of Cloud space on OneDrive (a great offer and the reason I bought it) one might be forgiven for thinking one could use the Seagate software to backup to OneDrive. Well you can't. Oddly the Dashboard doesn't work with OneDrive even though OneDrive appears on the Cloud options (I was so sure I had to be doing something wrong I checked with Seagate support and they confirmed)
I use it for a business purpose on a daily base.
Using it for more than a year with no problem and no faults.
It doesn't get too hot and the design is lovely.
The size of it makes it perfect for an iMac, Pc, Macbook or Laptop (I tuck mine just behind my macbook on a laptop tray without it getting in the way). I often forget it's there thought and will heave the tray off my lap to place to one side remembering I have it attached as I hear the "Thud" noise it makes as it hits the floor.
