Kool Tools: Seagate Backup Plus FAST


The Backup Plus FAST hard drive from Seagate is an incredibly useful tool for field photographers, filmmakers and others who need to quickly move large files to backup.

The metal top-case of Seagate Backup Plus FAST drive is a quality sturdy design and is resistant to scratches and fingerprints. It needs no external power supply and is compact enough to fit easily in a camera bag or backpack while delivering the same or higher capacity of today’s desktop drives. The drive is configured as RAID 0, which stripes the data across both drives increasing the volume capacity and transfer speed.

Speed and capacity are of the utmost importance in my work which calls for the latest in digital photography and video technologies. When dealing with the large files these devices produce, whether it's a still photo, time-lapse video or 4k video; having high-capacity reliable and fast storage can make the difference between a project succeeding or failing. Ingesting, editing, managing, and backing up these files, which are often gigabytes in size, represent crucial steps.

The Seagate Dashboard software provides an easy one-click backup solution, but can also be set as a scheduled backup up as needed. Additionally, the Dashboard software will back up Facebook and Flickr albums to ensure that even video and photos shared through these networks are backed up and easy to find. You can use the Save and Share features to download and upload content from these social network sites. Even all the photos you have been tagged in can be backed up from your social networks to the drive.

The latest update to the Dashboard now also includes a mobile backup application to provide protection for one’s digital data on mobile devices. Install the free Seagate Mobile Backup app on an iOS or Android mobile device to back up all of the pictures and videos from that device to a drive or a cloud service. Back up from mobile devices can also be sent directly to the drive via a WiFi connection while within your network, or utilize cloud services such as Dropbox or Google Drive while on the road.

The 4TB Seagate Backup Plus FAST portable drive is currently available from Seagate.com at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of US$299.99.
