    I use this HD for two things: 1) I not only back up my complete iMAC system to it every night at midnight, but I also have made this drive bootable so if I have a main HD failure on my iMAC, I can not only boot from the Seagate drive, but have access to all of my programs. Time Machine used for backup for MACs is not a bootable drive. and 2) Being shirt pocket size, it is the perfect travel HD for staying backed up on the road and having something to upload my photos to.

    NOTE: The drive comes formatted for a PC and must be reformatted for use with an Apple computer. It is a fast, easy process with the utilities to accomplish the task supplied by the manufacturer.

    The product works very well, however, it does not work as easily as my previous one. I use to simply connect it and it would back up automatically. This one I have to go one by one and move each one independently into the appropriate folder. It stores them perfectly, but it much more work than before.

        Comments about 1TB Backup Plus Slim Portable External USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Silver):

        I was worried about setup and backup settings, it worked out of the box like I wanted without me putting any work.
        I bought an MBA with 128 GB of storage, and with 1TB Seagate slim backup I will continue to store more and carry more data without sacrificing money or weight.
        Very fast, it copied my 120 GB music library in 20 minutes, and backs up my my MBA, MacBook Pro, and iMac separately fast and separately while still being able to use it for other storage purposes.
        One thing Seagate missed, is that the drive is attractive and small but doesn't have a suitable case to go with is, I bought 3 cases that were 50% bigger than the drive and usp cord, I wish they supply a better more appropriately designed case to go with this great external drive.
        very quiet and with no vibration you can even notice unless you hold in your hand.
        Price-wise, this is the best option you can get for the money and it will surprise you in performance and aesthetic appearance.

                      I chose this portable drive mainly because of reliability and that it can be used on both Mac and Windows at the same time without additional reformatting. I have had some problem with other external HDs where it only worked on one or the other because of the predetermined format, and it would have to be reformatted for other purposes. Seagate also includes a very user friendly and straight forward application that can be helpful for those who are not using Mac Time Machine for backups. In terms of design, I love the minimalist, and sleek look of the drive.

                        I got this drive as a back-up for my older iMac with a USB 2 connection. I have only had it a few days but it installed easily and works well with Time Machine. It sits right on my desk and is completely quiet. The only drawback is that the USB cable that came with it is extremely short — only about 14 inches, but this is minor.

                              I use my external hard drives for storing all my high resolution film scans and working TIFF files (many Photoshop layers) that quickly build up storage. The Seagate 1 TB Backup Plus Slim is indeed compact and sleek, fast and easy to use. I mainly use my hard drives on Macs, but upon initial setup I chose to format the drive for both PC and Mac (in case I wanted to use it on the PCs at work). This posed a problem however- my Mac was unable to recognize the drive. But the problem was solved after a quick partition (instructions found on internet). I have no reason to backup social media, so I can't speak to that feature but overall it's easy to use and reliable!

                                I use this for storage for all of our family pictures, kids art projects and sensitive personal documents. The case is smaller and slimmer than expected which is great. The case has a solid build. My only complaint is the USB 3.0 attachment to the unit. The 3.0 seems flimsy, and doesn't seem to fit solidly into the unit. I am concerned about this bending eventually, even with careful use. HOWEVER, I feel this way about ALL USB 3.0 attachments. I am not a fan of the sturdiness of the design, but it does transfer info noticeably faster.
