Product Description

The Seagate Backup Plus for Mac portable drive simplifies backup for consumers who want to protect their entire digital life locally or on social networks. The drive is formatted for Mac out of the box, making it compatible with Time Machine software to provide the simplest and most efficient way to back up locally. With the Save feature, user-generated content can be backed up from your favorite social networks. Many people now use their smartphones to capture priceless moments.

Simply select files to upload, choose where to post them and even add comments. Managing your social profile has never been easier. Install the downloadable HFS+ driver for PC, and use the drive interchangeably between Mac computers and PCs, without reformatting. Take advantage of the Seagate Backup Plus design and upgrade from the included USB 3.0 interface to Thunderbolt technology or FireWire 800 with the additional adapter.

It was an easy install and has worked beautifully with Time Machine on my Mac.
Nashville Nancy
Good basic drive for Mac backups but I recommend using Time Machine and skipping the Seagate software included with the drive.

So, this review is really about buying a product designed for something else and changing it.

TIP: YOU CAN USE ANY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE WITH A MAC AND DON'T NEED A "MAC COMPATIBLE" DRIVE. Amazon has a few cheaper drives if you look around. Be sure to buy the biggest drive you can afford as at some point you will need/want it. Be sure to check your price of the different sizes some are so close as to justify the up charge in price.

If you're a Mac user setting up or erasing this hard drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps. I never use software that comes with hard drives I just wipe them & use Time Machine.

1. Plug in the hard drive
2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder
3. Next select the newly plugged in a hard drive and on the right-hand side you should see partition click on that.
4. Then inside that screen on the partition layout drop-down choose how many partitions you'd like to set up. I generally go with one partition and just use folders to organize my files.
5. Then on the right-hand side you can name the partitions and select the format. If you want your hard drive to work with your Mac for doing Time Machine backups (which I highly recommend) choose Mac OS Extended. Sometimes it's good to make two partitions and one using "MS-DOS fat" if you might be transferring files to and from a Windows machine. The reason is Windows machines and Max can read and write to the "MS-DOS fat" format but your files will need to be under 4 GB each as that's the maximum file size it can hold.
6. Then click apply and your Mac will create all the partitions you wanted and you're good to go.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This external drive was able to be instantly used right out of the box. All I had to do was plug in the USB cable to the back of the drive and then plug the other end into one of my iMac's USB ports. The drive came with a bundle of extra software (the installation files are already loaded onto the hard drive) which I did not try to install, including backup data software.

The drive has a quick read-write ability, there was no noticeable lag in copying 2 GB of music and video files onto the drive, just to test it out. I rate this drive, so far, 5 stars, and I will update this review if anything changes.

Update: Less than two months later, the drive has quit working completely, and using the serial number and product numbers found in the email Seagate sent to me when I registered this product, (and when that failed, I just looked on the underside of the drive to make sure these numbers were correct) I am told that this product is not covered by a Seagate warranty. I'm extremely disappointed in Seagate and their lack of even the most basic customer service. Major Fail. Super junk. Thanks for nothing, Seagate.

I have never been so frustrated with a piece of technology before. I have a macbook pro and am running Lion. The hard drive kept ejecting itself on its own when I tried using Time Machine for the first time, whenever I tried copying my files to the hard drive, or just on its own! Apparently the drive will go to sleep on its own. I tried every solution including unchecking the put hard drives to sleep button in energy saver, downloading the seagate sleep override utility, downloading a keep drive spinning app, and finally partitioning the drive. This stupid thing still wants to eject itself whenever it wants to. And everytime it ejects itself my finder freezes and I have to hold down the power button to force shut down my laptop. I have never had to shut off my laptop that many times. I'm returning this thing right now.

apparently, it works fine in windows. in the Seagate Dashboard app in the windows version there's a setting so the hard drive won't sleep. they don't have this function in the mac version. so windows users enjoy.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
There really isn't much to say. This is a product that does exactly what it states it does. It works with Mac, although it can work with Windows and it's got a lot of storage.

One of the selling factors is the marketing hype about it being Mac compatible and Time Machine ready, when in reality, all you need to do to get a hard drive Mac compatible is format it and Time Machine ready is just selecting the formatted drive as your Time Machine backup.

It looks really sleek. Matches my Macbook Pro perfectly.

USB 3.0 with supplied cable is a great benefit, although I am still on USB 2.0 but it is backwards compatible.

One of the clever things about this drive is the ability to change out the interface. So with the purchase of an adaptor you can use this drive with Firewire 800 or Thunderbolt.

All in all, I am really happy with this external hard drive. Fits the bill better than most and is perfect for traveling. I don't want to take my 2TB 3.5 with me everywhere, so this is perfect to backup my data while on longer business trips.

Haven't used it with social networks, though it does state you can easily save all your Facebook data. Not really sure why you would worry about that, but is a nice feature... I guess.
