The downloadable Seagate Dashboard software has tools for local, mobile, cloud and social media backup. You can run one-click backup or schedule an automatic backup plan to protect your files in your Backup Plus portable drive.

Commenting on the launch, Tim Bucher, vice president for Seagate’s Consumer Group, said:
The launch of the Backup Plus Ultra Slim builds on Seagate’s rich history of award-winning innovation to give users even more capacity in an incredibly small form factor. Based on our breakthrough ultra-mobile hard drive technology, this new storage solution gives them a better way to manage the increase in both data volumes and number of devices.
