Bring up to 500GB of your data with you, transfer it to or from your computer, and perform backups using the silver 500GB Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive for Mac from Seagate. The Backup Plus features data transfer rates up to 5 Gb/s when using USB 3.0 and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 at speeds up to 480 Mb/s. Lightweight at 0.33 lb, the drive is compatible with Mac and Windows systems. The Backup Plus is powered solely via the USB connection.

The Backup Plus comes formatted for Mac, making it compatible with Apple's Time Machine backup software. By using Seagate's downloadable HFS+ driver, this drive can be used interchangeably between Mac and Windows computers without needing to be reformatted. The drive may also be reformatted for exclusive use with Windows, however, it will lose its Mac functionality.

Included with this drive is an 18" USB 3.0 cable that is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. Also included is Seagate Dashboard software, which helps protect and back up the files on your computer and mobile devices.

Share Feature to Upload to Social Media
The Share feature allows multiple files to be uploaded to social networks 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 add comments
Save Feature to Backup from Social Media
With the Save feature, user-generated content can be backed up from social networks. Many people now use their iPhones or smartphones to capture precious 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 and Seagate's Mobile Backup App automatically back up any content posted. Even if the file gets accidentally deleted from the device, another copy can be waiting
Seagate Dashboard
Seagate Dashboard software helps protect and back up the digital files on your computer and mobile devices. It integrates with the Seagate Mobile Backup app on iOS and Android devices and comes pre-installed on Seagate hard drives, including the Backup Plus.

Use the Seagate Dashboard and Seagate Mobile Backup app together to back up your photos and videos directly from your iOS and Android devices via your home's Wi-Fi or through cloud services such as Dropbox or Google Drive while on the go. On your computer, Windows, backups can be scheduled or continuous and Mac users benefit from full compatibility with Time Machine.
