Rated 2 out of 5 by from Supplied "Dashboard" software is poor Cumbersome software called "Dashboard" for backup. Lots of problems installing this software (has to be via the web) on windows xp - kept saying the file "seagate dashboard.msi" was faulty and stopped the installation. Had to repeat several downloads of "Seagate Dashboard Installer.exe" before it would finally work. After all this I discovered that when using this software to back up it does not preserve the original file date-time stamp - so when you look at the seagate drive all the backed-up files are stamped with the backup date not their original date of creation/editing - pretty useless if you are trying to find files based on how recent they are. The dashboard software is also primitive and limited with a very poor set of options. Also very memory hungry. Also, the "free" cloud storage claimed with this is not available to windows xp users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. I bought this for use at work after the recent scare around hacking. Feel much safer having all my files on this device.

I am upgrading to Windows 10 and need to back up the whole of my Windows 7, currently some 150Gb. Is the Seagate Back-up Plus 1Tb Usb3 suitable and easy to use

Asked by: Lawriecf
The drive comes with backup software, which will allow you to select the folders you wish to back up and then will proceed to perform this function in the background. However, if you are looking to create a full image of the old operating system as a possible restore drive you would need drive cloning software rather than backup software.
