  • 1Description

Designed for users who are on-the-go, yet require the storage afforded by desktop drives, the 4TB Backup Plus USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive for Mac from Seagate provides 4TB of space for data such as documents, videos, photos, music, and more. It is pre-formatted as HFS+ for Mac OS X 10.7 and later and connects to your system using its USB 3.0 interface, which is not only bus powered and requires no external power supplies, but also compatible with USB 2.0. While this drive is formatted for Mac, Seagate's included Paragon driver enables HFS+ compatibility for Windows, allowing this drive to be read from and written to in Windows without needing to be reformatted.

Seagate has also bundled this drive with its Dashboard software, which provides tools for mobile cloud and social media backup. Seagate's free Mobile Backup app can be installed on iOS or Android mobile devices and used to back up pictures and videos from a mobile device to an external drive. Users may also back up to the cloud using the Seagate Dashboard, and cloud connectivity is also available for Google Drive and Dropbox, as well as social media backup for Facebook and Flickr.

    4TB Backup Plus USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive for Mac is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from B&H Tops; Seagate not so much I give top rating to B&H for their ease of purchase. The Seagate drive works quite well but I bought it mainly for the Lyve Drive setup and access, and that has been a sorry story. Lyve would crash after some five minutes while backing up my 35GB image collection. Each time I'd relaunch, I was presented with a dialog where I could send the crash report direct to Seagate. After a week of relaunching and sending crash reports several times a day with no response, I opened a ticket at the Seagate support center. They hadn't seen my crash reports so I had to send several more. At this point Seagate is in investigating phase.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Paragon driver for windows does not work, else OK It has same speed as my all other USB 3 drives so that's ok The drive looks and feels good in hand, not much bulkier than my WD 2TB However paragon drive to make it work with windows has been taken off by seagate. I called their helpdesk and left negative feedback to them but no one resolved that issue . Anyway this drive will only work with mac and not with windows. Ofcourse you can reformat jt to windows but then jt will work only for windows and not for mac. It's a shame cause that's why I valued this drive more than the competitions

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 TB Hard Drive I’m very pleased with this product. The Mac compatible version was cheaper than Seagate’s price, and did away with the need for extra drivers. As usual, B&Hs shipping and zippy turn around time are a great convenience.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke within a year My mac has stopped reading the files from it... it locates the drive but can't see any files. And the drive makes some sound while the Mac searches for the files... going back to Seagate for a replacement on my Shipping cost :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Double duty We partitioned the 4 TB so 2 TB are for photo-video and 2 TB for time machine back-up. Only one USB port is used now and only one drive has to be hooked up for photo-video back ups. Works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from would definitely by again or recommend to others. New, smaller addition to my extended Seagate studio family. Does it's job storing footage and school projects without fail.
