Review: Seagate Backup Plus Slim External Hard Disk


Backup Plus Slim Portable 2TB_Family


I had a massive heart attack when I realised my whole lifetime’s worth of pictures were all gone when I dropped my external hard disk last year.  The external hard disk was less than a year old and it was a short fall from out of my hands and it could not function ever again.  I made a frantic trip down to Sim Lim Square to get it fixed but no one could help me but told me to back up my back up in future.  Afraid to lose my whole life away again, I heeded the advice and looked for external hard disks.


There were a few brands but the Seagate Backup Plus Hard Disk was one of the easiest and most comprehensive to use.   The second generation of the sleek external storage lineup, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim, with a svelte compact design and high speed USB3.0 interface, is the ideal storage solution for my memory loss.  The hard drive back up precious photos, videos and other files across numerous devices, social networks and personal computers.

“70% of pictures are taken with a smartphone… it becomes increasingly important that these files be backed up either to a cloud service or locally.” Chris Chute, research director for IDC’s Worldwide Digital Imaging Practice.

The backup software, Seagate Dashboard provides an easy, one-click back up solution, it can even arrange a backup on a schedule.  The software even allows backup from mobile device and social networks like Facebook, Flickr albums and even photos that we are tagged into the external hard drive. Once reaching home, entering into a wi-fi zone, the content from the mobile phones can backed up to the hard drive.

The Seagate Backup Plus External Hard Disk has made the chore of backing up precious moments, important photos and files so simple even for a not so tech-savvy mama like me.
