Here’s a hot deal for those of you looking for a hefty backup solution. It’s time to secure all of those personal files with something capable for the task. Seagate’s 4TB Backup Plus External USB 3.0 is currently on sale for a limited time at Best Buy. Perfect for backing up the average everyday system, you can make sure all of your family photos are safe, while also making sure you won’t have to redownload your iTunes collection if Windows decides to take a vacation on you. Currently on sale for only $79.99, it enters the price range of some 2TB solutions, making this a great grab.
It of course can be used for Mac, PC or Linux, and can also support mobile devices using Seagate’s Mobile Backup app (available for both iOS and Android). Additionally, with Seagate’s included Dashboard software, you can easily manage the backups of your system using a easy to use interface, helping to secure everything that’s important to you. You can of course use alternatives as well (as if any drive), such as Acronis to do the same.
It promises up to 160MB/s with USB 3.0 connectivity, so speed shouldn’t be an issue. If it is anything like the 8TB drives we use here, you shouldn’t have any reason to be disappointed at all, as they are consistently keeping things secure around here every day and we have never had an issue of failure or bottleneck that affected our daily functions.
