            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.

            The instructions for setting up the Seagate were hard to follow. However, the tech at the 800 number quickly, efficiently, professionally walked me through the process in a matter of minutes.

            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.
