  • A. I think that it will actually work for PC or Mac. At least it says so on the box. But if you have a PC, I'd recommend searching for the one designed for PCs. I think it is the model STBU1000100. (The very last digit indicates the color. Zero is for black.)

  • A. The Backup Plus for Mac is setup from the box with the Mac file system. You could use the drive with the PC driver that is included with the software or simply repartition and format the drive, but a better option would be to purchase the non Mac version of the Backup Plus drive as this is setup from the box for a PC. Here is a link to this drive: http://www.seagate.com/external-hard-drives/desktop-hard-drives/backup-plus-desk/

  • A. I believe this device specifications did mention backward compatibility for legacy technology...All windows operating systems come with support. Especially for third party add-ons... If anything, Windows 8 should be an improvement for added devices... However, remember, to check for Compatibility with Windows operating system with MAC operating compatibility. They are completely different from each other... You can also look into formatting this device to match windows operating systems...Since its made primarily for MAC... I don't see a problem with going forward.

  • A. Hello, Yes, this drive is backwards compatible to USB 2.0. This drive is formatted for MAC out of the box, but if you install the Windows driver on your system, it will allow the drive to work with both Mac and PC, including Windows 8.

Arrived in a timely manner. I bouight this hard drive for my Mac book Pro. There is an apple program that you can use on it. However, it only lets you upload and download movies and pictures to you tube or face book. Neither of which I use and the manual or instructions that came with it weren' t much help. They do have a helpflul support team on the internet and phone line. I formated the drive and it serves its purpose (storage for I-movies and photoes) well.

Best price between any electronic stores! Ordered arrived within days, 1st time shopping online but def not last. First Upload of 350+ gbs took a bit so consider thunder bolt adaption for faster speeds or be sure you do at night as recommended. Using time machine with this is as easy as 1 2 3! If your careful and take care of your electronics you don't have to worry about it tipping over as mentioned by others. Very hAppy with my purchase

I bought this so that TimeMachine on my iMac could back up to it. I just took it out of the box, plugged it in, and it worked. Well, I think TimeMachine popped up a box and I clicked that I wanted to use it. That was it. It's got 3 TB of storage, which is quite a bit. I've had it for a couple of weeks now, it it has gotten 170GB on it. The 3 TB should last a long time. Yes it might have been a bit more pricy than had I gotten a hard drive and an enclosure and a USB cable, reformatted for the Mac, etc. But it just worked. It is USB 3.0, so if you have a new Mac with USB 3 it will go even faster. (My Mac is just USB 2.)

Time Machine backup for iMac

Purchased this unit to replace a WD unit that failed. A bit of history, my iMac 2009 late version came with a Seagate 1TB HD that Apple replaced free under warranty after many failure reports. The replacement failed, causing the WD Time Machine to fail. Got everything to work after many expensive calls to Apple and purchased a new HD along with a new Superdrive, which I have not installed yet. This Seagate backup has worked well and has plenty of memory for my purposes.

I am completely satisfied because it's a SCSI Mac device that's recognized by my Server OS and its use can be modified to meet and sync with UFS Server Format. This device is perfect for worry-free backing up of server critical files and configurations...
