Seagate Technology (http://www.seagate.com) has introduced Backup Plus storage devices, its reinvented consumer storage product family that delivers what the company says is the easiest setup, one-click backup and the ability to save and share your content on Facebook and Flickr.
Seagate Backup Plus hard drives are newly designed external storage that work interchangeably with both Mac and Window systems and deliver features to protect, share and save nearly every aspect of one’s digital life. These products come loaded with the new Seagate Dashboard software for one-click local backup.
Seagate says the Backup Plus products are the world’s first external hard drives to provide backup for content on social networks, such as Facebook and Flickr. Storing a local duplicate copy of photos from social networks is purportedly now as easy as backing up files on your computer. S
