The Backup Plus Ultra Slim Portable Drive is one of Seagate's thinnest and most eye-catching portable hard drives. Available in stunning gold and platinum colors- style meets storage- and easily slips into your backpack along with your other essentials. At 9.6mm thin, capacity is not sacrificed with 1TB and 2TB options-bring your most important files and head out the door. Back up and manage your favorite files from your computer, tablet and mobile devices using the Seagate Dashboard. Run a one-click backup or schedule an automatic backup plan to help protect your files. Convenient tools for local, mobile, cloud and social media backup at the ready. With high-speed USB 3.0 and 2.0 connectivity, you can depend on seamless plug-and-play functionality. And the USB bus-power eliminates the need for an external power supply, letting you access your files while on the move. Proper handling and precautions for external drives: Use only in a system that satisfies the system requirements. For better performance and reliability, upgrade the operating system to the latest version. Use the power supply that came with the drive, or one with the same specifications. Always backup important data, as Seagate does not warranty the data on your external drive. Avoid damp areas, since moisture may cause corrosion. Unauthorized disassembly of the product and removal of the labeling will void your warranty. Protect the system and the external drive by performing virus checks on a regular basis. Always safely remove the external drive before disconnecting the external drive from the computer. Avoid handling the drive roughly as it is a mechanical device. Current Seagate, Samsung, and Maxtor external drives are compatible with Windows Vista or later and MacOSX 10.4.8 or later at a hardware level.
