We take all of our photos on either our DSLR camera, our point and shoot or our camera phones. We have so many pictures from the time Daddy Digger and I met way back in 2001 to now. We have always taken a lot of photos and since Baby Digger was born the amount of photos we take has increased by leaps and bounds – I just have to capture all the wonderful moments! When you have all those important photos, it’s important to keep them safe and secure which is why we use external hard drives to store them for safekeeping. The Seagate GoFlex Slim Portable Hard Drive has up to 500GB of storage and its so small and compact.
- High-performance 7200-RPM drive
- USB 2.0 plug-and-play connectivity
- Formatted for Mac and compatible with Time Machine® software
- Works with both Mac and PC computers
When it arrived I knew it was going to be slim but wow is it ever! All that storage and power in a drive that is no thicker than a pencil! It’s a sleek high-performance portable hard drive that is perfect for storing all your treasured photos, movies and music.
While it is made for a Mac, it is also compatible with PCs. I’d love a Mac but I’m still on a PC laptop so we had to format the drive for a PC. To make it work with our PC all we needed to do was just install the downloadable HFS+ driver. Now if I ever do decide to go Mac, whats great is the GoFlex Slim for Mac will work on both PC and Mac interchangeably.
I love how easy it is to use and it transfers files FAST! To store files all you need to do is plug it in with the USB cord from the drive to your computer and run the setup file on your computer. Then you run the backup scan and it will start to backup all the files on your computer. Each time you backup your files, it will recognize the new and update files and back them up. We plug ours in each time we take new photos or video to be sure we don’t lose them. When I’m done backing up our files it’s so small and doesn’t take much space in our electronics storage drawer.
I am so glad to have the peace of mind knowing that all my important photos, videos and files are backed up especially with all the summer fun memories I’m going to capture soon!
