      Not for windows 7 backup

      It looks like a good hard drive if you are using it as an "expansion". I moved files from other drive and it was easy and fast. However, if you are thinking to use it for Windows 7 backup, pick 2TB or smaller. After all trouble I had, I found following article at Seagate website: "Microsoft Image Backup in Windows 7 will not support Seagate 3TB and 4TB drives (along with most other external drives above 2.1TB)." This Seagate Expansion 3TB does not come with any software so If your OS is Windows 7, you have to find backup software. I would give 5 star if the issue was clearly stated at the item description.

      Let’s start with the smooth lines of the unit. Perfect amount of ventilation. Easy hook up – just plug in and your computer should automatically recognize it because of the USB. Very portable, and can be taken on the go or if you have computers in different rooms. Can be formatted to be used on both MAC and Windows computers. Very easy to set it up and partition it to your liking (many applications out there on the web that are free to help you do that). And pretty fast, of course depending on the kind of system you have. Have been storing a lot of data of different formats on it such as docs, photos, videos. I’ve had it over 5 years and have not had any issues so far. Hence, I would recommend it to all.

      I purchased this external drive when my last one stopped working, it is the exact same one from the last time . The only reason I decided to try again is that this drive is very easy to use just plug in and go to work . The storage space is great and the download time is pretty good I also like the secure options on it and it is very easy to retrieve my files no problems yet on this one . I purchased this one from Best Buy because they had the best price which is always the case , they always beat the competitors hands down!

      I have been using a Seagate external hard drive for my data files (my new computer has a limited amount of flash storage and NO internal hard drive) for about one month. The EHD takes up about five square inches of space under my monitor, and one USB port. The drive was delivered promptly at no additional charge. Hard drives tend to fail either soon after purchase or after some years of use. This drive has no issues, which is what I want. I back up the files to a second or third external drive daily.

      I needed an expansion to my XBox One. It plugs right in, XBox accepts it, formats it, and transfer data as expected. I usually don't buy anything other than Western Digital for hard drives, but the price was great for the amount of storage. The drive is rather large for an external hard drive, but I didn't buy it for aesthetics. It's hidden in a cabinet. It works. That's all I care about; and not breaking the bank.

      I wanted storage to backup my wedding photos, music and video games. I did a lot of research and noticed the external hard drive had a pretty good amount of storage space a really good price. Usually that means it is too good to be true but it has been fantastic. There is so much storage that I have barely made a dent in my storage. Definitely a must buy if you are in need of an affordable external hard drive.

      I am always running out of space and so I always check out Best Buy and B&H to see what's on sale and lo and behold I found this Seagate Expansion 3TB external USB 3.0 hard drive. The price was just a little over a hundred and I've purchased other Seagate products and they have been pretty good and lasted for year. I am so far pretty satisfied with my purchase.
