The Seagate Backup Plus Hub for Mac optimizes external storage with simple local or cloud file backup for your computers and mobile devices— and an intelligent USB hub to charge and manage your USB-connected devices. The drive is formatted for Mac and compatible with Time Machine backup software right out of the box. High-speed USB 3.0 and 2.0 connectivity offers plug-and-play functionality on your Mac. Install the HFS+ driver for PC, and you can use the drive interchangeably between Windows and Mac computers without reformatting. The two front-facing intelligent USB 3.0 ports amplify the functionality of your drive by allowing you to charge and connect two external devices, such as your phone, tablet or camera—even if your computer is in off/standby mode. Via the downloadable Seagate Dashboard software, you are provided with tools for local, mobile, cloud and social media backup.
