New Delhi, March 26, 2014: Global hard disk drives and storage solutions  leader,Seagate Technology, has brought the world's thinnest external 2 terabyte hard drive to India. Also launched here this week is  the world’s first portable 4 terabyte storage device.

The Seagate Backup Plus Slim, just 12. 1mm in thickness,  comes with a USB 3.0 interface and  is the ideal storage solution to aggregate and back up valued photos, videos and other files despite being spread across numerous devices, social networks and personal computers.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.

The Backup Plus FAST portable drive is the world’s first portable 4TB storage device, providing twice the capacity and speed of existing external portable drives. This   drive features a  USB 3.0 interface to deliver transfer speeds up to 220MB per second, making it the perfect companion for a field photographer or filmmaker looking to quickly move large files to backup.


Mobile devices account for the largest amount of captured video and photos today. Seven out of every ten pictures captured in 2013 were taken with a smartphone. As a greater portion of our memories are captured by the handheld devices, it becomes increasingly more important that these files be backed up either to a cloud service or locally-  Chris Chute, research director for IDC’s Worldwide Digital Imaging Practice.


“Seagate Backup Plus has been designed to make the chore of backing up as simple as possible, says Rajesh Khurana, country manager, India & SAARC, Philippines, Vietnam, Indo-China, Singapore for Seagate Technology,  “Today, digital storage is important for everyone who uses a personal computer or a mobile device. We are all creating content, whether that be photos from our last activity, video of a baby’s first steps or a proposal for your next project. All of these files hold a special place of importance and Seagate is in the business of providing products that can store those valuable files.”

New for the Backup Plus family of external storage this year is the addition of a mobile backup application to provide protection for one’s digital data on nearly every device. By simply installing the free Seagate Mobile Backup app on an iOS or Android mobile device, one can easily back up all of the pictures and videos from that device to the drive or a cloud service. While on a home network, content from mobile devices can be sent directly to the drive via a Wi-Fi connection. Cloud services such as Dropbox or Google Drive can be used for backup while on the road.
