What is Backup Plus?
The Seagate Backup Plus family of external hard drives allow you to manage everything from a single dashboard on your computer. From this dashboard you are able to set up automatic backups of all your stuff, so you can be safe in the knowledge that it’s protected. Link the drive to your Facebook or Flickr account and all your photos can be downloaded right to your drive or even share your photos and videos to your social media straight from your device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from storage solution I bought it few years ago, loaded it with thousands of files, photos and mp4 files and still works and looks brand new, fast on transfer and easy to carry around with my laptop

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Software I bought this in order to be able to automatically back up an external HDD to another one, using my Mac laptop. Whilst the new drive is Mac compatible (with a download), the facility to do what I wanted is PC only. This was confirmed by Seagate. To be fair, Maplin handled my query well and responded quickly and fully, eventually agreeing that I should return my item for a refund. This I have now done.

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.
