Why should I choose a portable drive?
This portable drive is great if you are constantly on the move or you need a space saving design. As it’s powered by USB you can connect it to any computer or newer smart TV with a USB port.

Most external hard drives can be formatted for Xbox One and Xbox 360 games & apps in a few minutes with ease!
For brand new drives, simply connect your hard drive to your Xbox One via a USB cable, and follow the on-screen prompts to set up external storage on your Xbox One by formatting the storage device. You will be asked to give the external drive a name, and to choose whether you want all new apps and games to be installed on it by default.

Your Xbox One will then notify you when the formatting is complete.

For Xbox 360, connect your hard drive via USB, and then navigate to "settings," then select "system" and then "storage." Navigate to your external drive and select it. Within the device options choose "Format" to remove all data from the drive, and format it for use with your Xbox 360. Once complete you can rename the drive if you choose, and begin transferring and saving your games onto your new hard drive.

For PS4, navigate to settings tab from the menu bar, and scroll down to "devices" and press X to open. From here select USB storage devices, and select your external hard drive. Once you press X over your device of choice, it will give you the option to "format as extended storage". Once you press X it will notify of how it works and another quick press of the X button will begin the process. Please note that with the PS4 extended storage, any new applications will be stored on the external drive, and you can move them between the old and new drive. Saved data, Screenshots and video clips will continue to be saved onto the default system storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PS4 memory upgrade I bought this product to upgrade my PS4's memory. Whilst I did not end up with as much memory as I thought I would (1.77 TB as opposed to 2TB), I have found the product to be effective and easy to use with my current hardware. I would recommend the same item to friends who wish to use it for similar reasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from External drive for a PS4 Bought this to extend my PlayStation 4 storage. Since PS4 system update 4.5 it's possible to install and run games from an external drive. This works very well for that.

I currently have a Seagate Backup Plus which we keep homemade movies on, and we watch these on our TV. We have put the movies on this expansion HD as back up, but they won't play on our TV, the titles of the movies don't even show up on the TV screen.

The difference between Back up Expansion &Back up plus ?

Asked by: williet
Backup Plus drives come bundled with Seagate's Dashboard software to manage incremental backups of files and folders, while Expansion drives are just the external hard drive without any bundled software.
