Expand your storage with Seagate® desktop external hard drives. They come with varying capacities to meet your unique data needs. A portable external drive makes a suitable pick if you're frequently on the go, while desktop models are a popular choice for static office settings or backup solutions. Choosing a model that offers high read/write speeds will help shorten the time it takes to copy files. Seagate backup plus hubs come with even more storage space to help simplify data backup across multiple platforms.
A Seagate portable external hard drive showcases a compact and lightweight design that makes it easy to carry. Powered by a single USB cable, a portable drive offers quick installation and reduced cord clutter. Most come with a textured casing to complement your aesthetics. A hard drive that provides integrated security safeguards, such as hardware encryption and password protection, helps protect your data from unauthorized access. A Seagate portable external hard drive may also support both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 devices for backward compatibility. Some models come with a data management tool that enables seamless mirroring of folders. Other portable external hard drives come with built-in photo editing software for smooth photo touch-ups and organization.
A Seagate desktop external hard drive makes it easier to offload large volumes of files from your internal drive with ease. It also helps ease the transfer of data between multiple devices. Most models come with a simple plug-and-play design, saving you valuable installation time. In addition to out-of-the-box compatibility with the Windows® operating system, most Seagate desktop external hard drives can double up as Mac hard drives once you reformat them. Hard drives with an integrated USB Type-C® port deliver faster speeds when paired with compatible devices. If you intend to store sensitive data, be sure to consider the physical design of each drive. Models that come with a rugged enclosure help provide a little extra protection from light impact. Seagate external drives with built-in power management help ensure efficient energy consumption for reduced energy costs.
Create a one-stop storage solution for backing up data with a Seagate Backup Plus Hub. Some models come with multiple USB 3.0 ports, so you can back up files from your computer while charging your smartphone or camera. Other Seagate drives operate with innovative technology that powers the portable device, even when your system is off or in standby mode. Be sure to choose a cross-compatible Seagate backup plus hub if you want a model that works with both Windows and Mac® operating systems. You can also use the included Seagate software to schedule automatic backups on your device or to your personal cloud at preset intervals so you do not lose important files or data.
