Then I spent over an hour with the SENIOR Mac genius trying to reformat it and partition it and every other thing you could do to it all to no avail. Maybe I just got a lemon, so I'll try one more. But after this experience...I'm not too hopeful. They say it's "MAC formatted" right out of the box, that was certainly not my experience.

  • Great Drive - Ditch the Software

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I love the drive... it is extremely fast and USB 3.0 powered. Very portable and the only thing I had to do was delete the SG soft I love the drive... it is extremely fast and USB 3.0 powered. Very portable and the only thing I had to do was delete the SG software to free up that space. I use it to store my music and movies on my Mac Mini Server, and I can just pull it and take it with me to watch movies on my MBP. Brilliant!

    Not a single problem - works perfectly - no issues. It's a hard drive - does what it is supposed to - stores things.

    I use the Seagate 1TB Backup Plus in conjunction with Time Machine as an automatic backup for my 15" MacBook Pro running Maverick I use the Seagate 1TB Backup Plus in conjunction with Time Machine as an automatic backup for my 15" MacBook Pro running Maverick - the product offered easy setup and works flawlessly for my scheduled and regular backups. Great product and a reasonable price. I only wish it was solid-state rather than a mechanical drive.

    I use a similar drive as a backup hard drive for storing photos and customer files when I travel. My data is critical so I backup a lot.

    Purchased this just two months ago and started to have connection issues. Initially it would disconnect for no apparent reason and Purchased this just two months ago and started to have connection issues. Initially it would disconnect for no apparent reason and then suddenly reconnect. Problem is at the point now where connection happens randomly. Good thing everything is backed up to another EHD! I CAN say that Seagate customer service is helpful because I'm getting a new one shipped - but at my expense. From what I understand it would appear that this connection issue has been enough of a problem that the case was changed to one single piece and therefore few questions were asked by their technical/warranty departments other than for my shipping address and credit card information. Definitely would not purchase this again.
