Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't see folders/files directly I will be returning this and getting something simpler. You can only see your backed up folders/files via their dashboard, not directly on the drive. When I realized it had backed up both my C and D drives by default I wanted to delete the D backup, but couldn't 'see' the D drive to do so. Even via dashboard. Heaven knows what happens when I connect to another laptop/PC that doesn't have the dashboard installed. Also it's used up about 1.2 TB of the 2TB, but my C and D only hold half this. Can I investigate by looking directly to see what's been backed up? No way. I need something that is the same as the folders/files on my C drive, directly accessible. This is not that product. And their support still hasn't responded to my emails.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the box A great little external drive. Looks good, fast enough, reasonably easy to set up but not too easy to see the back up info changes that have taken place or to be sure everything has been copied. Like the front power and usage lights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Very easy to set up etc. and very fast .Unfortunately there is no activity indicator to show that the drive is actively receiving or sending data. My other 2 Seagate drives of 500GB & 1TB, (about 18 months old) do have this and it is very useful. All the same it is well worth the money.

Can one use this Seagate 2TB hard drive without Samsung's software? e.g. can you use it by just copying files to it or using Windows Backup software? Thanks.

Asked by: Ahab
Yes that would be fine. You dont need to use the Samsung software .
