Storage solutions company Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ:STX) announced Sunday the second generation of its external storage lineup, Seagate Backup Plus Slim.
With a compact design and USB 3.0 interface, the Backup Plus Slim drive is a storage solution to aggregate and back up photos, videos and other files despite being spread across numerous devices, social networks, and personal computers.
This new offering includes the backup software, Seagate Dashboard, which provides an easy one-click backup solution, but can also be set as a scheduled backup up as needed.
Additionally, the Dashboard software will back up Facebook and Flickr albums to ensure that even video and photos shared through these networks are backed up and easy to find.
You can use the Save and Share features to download and upload content from these social media networks. Even all the photos you have been tagged in can be backed up from your social networks to the drive.
“Today, digital storage is important for everyone who uses a personal computer or a mobile device,” said Scott Horn, vice president of global marketing for Seagate.
