            i don't know why this review only refers to gaming, when i bought an external drive. Drive will not work with windows 8 file history feature, which is VERY disappointing.

            I bought this external hard drive for my son. He has so many files for a teenager. When I gave it to him, he did not waste anytime in using the system. I have heard about Seagate from my friends and I am glad that I took their advice in getting the external hard drive.

                Comments about Seagate® Hard Drives; Backup Plus® Portable Drive, 500GB:

                I purchased the Seagate back drive because it appeared to be easy to set up, in which it was, it was compact to carry with me if need be. When I installed it I just love the way I could create various files and folders to be stored and redirect other files and folders to the back up drive, and I could save the back up drive to my deck top and work from there. I can move the folders or files from one place to another if I made a mistake when creating a folder. I have tones of documents that needs to be scanned and saved to my back up drive and when doing this, I notice I still have a lot of space left on the back up drive and I am still scanning documents to the back up drive. If I need to purchase another one I will surely get this Seagate back up drive. I just love it.
