I mainly bought this HDD for storing video media, which works pefectly for transfering files on Windows 10, and connected to an Nvidia Shield for watching said media. 18TB will equal out to 16.2TB on a PC as data sizes are measured differently on operating systems.

    Top comment

    "Included software does not backup external HDs...Built in software does not backup external hard drives. I bought acronis But the external hd performs as expected...Obviously, most people won't hit the storage limit here, which is nice as someone who's always hit the the ceiling on their storage, but outside of that obvious plus, you also get a speedy HDD that isn't loud (two important factors for someone who's coming from an SSD nowadays). As a desktop external HDD, it needs its own power supply as expected, but it's worth making room for it among your setup for the sense of immense storage and storage safety this Seagate provides."
