Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB External Hard Drive

I’m a fan/user of Seagate Hard Drives, so when one of my clients asked for a suggestion on an external Hard Drive to buy, I had no problem suggesting Seagate.

I did some research and recommended she take a look at this Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB External Hard Drive to suit her needs.

I suggested this drive for her because at 2TB, it has more than enough space to serve as both a backup solution and everyday storage for files, images, and videos…the latter two can take up a ton of space that ends up slowing down a computer if left on the main internal drive.

By creating a dual-drive partition (something I’ll end up doing for my client), this Drive has more than enough space to do everything my client needs.

Another bonus is that this Seagate Backup Plus comes with 2 years of 200GB of cloud storage, courtesy of Microsoft OneDrive, for $free.99. I always suggest that my clients have multiple copies of their data, in multiple formats, in multiple locations. So this extra cloud storage is a “required bonus” in my opinion.

To round out the features, the Seagate Backup Plus offers USB 3.0 connectivity, so file transfers are super quick, and the Hard Drive comes in multiple colors, for added personalization.

All that for a surprising price tag of under $90. So if you need an backup drive, some extra cloud storage, or a space store all those large files, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB External Hard Drive can get the job done.
