About Seagate 500GB Slim Portable Drive

The Seagate Slim External 500GB Portable Hard Drive (Black) features Seagate Dashboard for consumers who want to back up their digital lives and take it on-the-go. Just slightly thicker than an iPhone, the brushed metal design allows you to slide the drive into your pocket, purse or briefcase and carry it with you. Via the Seagate Dashboard, use the Protect function to set up your easy, automatic local backup with a one-click or scheduled plan. Keep multiple copies of your files in case disaster strikes.

With the Save feature, user-generated content can be backed up from your favorite social networks. Many people now use their smartphones to capture priceless moments. While these devices are handy and readily available, storage is not their strong suit. Capture a memory, post it on a social networking site and let the Seagate Dashboard automatically back up any content posted. Even if the file gets accidentally deleted from the device, another copy can be waiting.

The Share feature allows multiple files to be uploaded to social networks at once from your computer. The days of uploading individual files without creating a new album are gone! Simply select files to upload, choose where to post them and even add comments. Managing your social profile has never been easier. Install the pre-loaded NTFS driver for Mac and use the drive interchangeably between PC and Mac computers without reformatting the drive.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I want to save family photos. I realize the external hard drives that use disks can fail as can the internal hard drive. Is there a failure mode for solid state external drives?
ZOLTAN G. Z  There is a failure rate for all products, and solid state drives are no different. They can be affected by static electricity, very strong magnetic fields, temperature and humidity extremes. However, there are NO MOVING parts as in a spinning HD .. but still SS drives have a limited write/read cycle, and are relatively too new to know for sure of their life expectancy.
JA B  Do I remove what seems to be a film from the face of the USB unit? Then plug the slim Portable 500GB/GO into the USB port on the keyboard; then what happens? and what do I do next? jab
JAMES N  Wait for the explosion- ha ha- the film is there to protect the face from scratching It should load and put an icon on your screen
