The 3TB Backup Hard Drive for Mac with GoFlex Thunderbolt Adapter Kit from B&H combines a 3TB hard drive with super fast data transfer capabilities of the GoFlex Thunderbolt adapter allowing for data transfer rates up to 10Gbps. You can also take advantage of the automatic backup feature as well as Seagate Dashboard Management to manage your data quickly and efficiently. Powering your drive is also simple as the Thunderbolt connection also powers your drive eliminating the need for an additional power source.
In a world where movies, music, and photos take up enormous chunks of hard drive space, it's good to have the Seagate 3TB Backup Plus Desktop Drive for Mac. These large-capacity drives make organizing and backing up your vast libraries of digital content much easier, and less time consuming.
Like the Backup Plus portable drives in this series, these drives also help you maintain control over your social network photos with one-touch sending/receiving of photos to your favorite social media sites. But the added storage of these giant drives (up to 4TB) makes these even more useful - store all of your music, movies, and content in one central place. The small form factor allows you to keep your desk uncluttered while granting you a closetful of storage.
All Seagate Backup Plus drives come pre-installed with the Seagate Dashboard on the drive to help you configure your drive for your needs. You can choose from scheduled backups to continuous backups, ensuring that your data is safe and sound.
The Mac versions in this line are Mac OS and Time Machine ready, with the option of downloading the HFS+ driver to make the drives perfectly compatible between Mac and PC systems. The Mac versions feature FireWire 800/USB 2.0 connectivity, and even include the cables. The Seagate Backup Plus Desktop for Mac series can also have its interface upgraded to Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 via optional adapters (sold separately).
Use the GoFlex Thunderbolt Adapter from Seagate with your GoFlex Desk drive for extremely fast transfers of large files, and daisy-chaining for less clutter around your computer. Connect your drive and Thunderbolt cable to the adapter for interface speeds of up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0 technology. The dual ports allow you to link up to six devices in a daisy-chain to reduce the number of cables and amount of clutter on your desk.
