Seagate's New Back-up Plus Hard Drives Don't Support Linux!  
 
Before we get on with any product, we always look at the market trends, and for now we do not have very strong data supporting Linux, said Vermount Hoh, product marketing manager, Seagate Singapore International Headquarters Pte Ltd.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 Seagate has launched the all-new Backup Plus storage devices, which the company touts as a reinvention in the consumer storage product family. The Backup Plus storage solution provides easy setup, one-click backup and ability to save and share your content on Facebook and Flickr.

The company claims that these external storage drives work interchangeably across platforms but, there's a catch. It works interchangeably only with Windows and Apple products and does not include any open source platform. Vermount Hoh, product marketing manager, Seagate Singapore International Headquarters Pte Ltd, explains the reason for not choosing any open source operating system for their product. Hoh said, “Currently the drives support only Apple and Windows platforms. We are willing to explore a possibility for Linux platform as well. Officially, we are not supporting any open source platform because most of the consumers out there use either iOS or Windows based machines. But moving forward we may consider making Backup Plus Linux compatible if there is enough feedback and data about it to show that there is demand for Linux supported products in certain region. Before we get on with any product we always look at the market trends and for now, we do not have very strong data supporting Linux. But as I said, we will look at users' considerations and if there is a need, we will surely bring products compatible with open source operating systems.”

Seagate Backup Plus hard drives feature the new Seagate Dashboard backup software which allows users to take backup of their data and content preservation with just a click of the mouse. You can replicate your computer files onto a Backup Plus Drive with the click of the mouse. The Seagate Dashboard software in Backup Plus allows the users to provide a single click path to Save (download) and Share (upload) personal photos and videos on Facebook and Flickr. So you can now capture a moment and post it of Facebook and let the Seagate Dashboard automatically back up any content posted. The Share feature allows multiple files to be uploaded to social networks at once from your PC. Please note that no other social networking platform can be integrated with the drive.

Backup Plus is available in both Portable and Desktop versions. The portable versions are available with 500 GB and 1 TB storage space while the Desktop version is available in 2TB and 3TB space.

Seagate Backup Plus drives are available through select retailers across India. They are available in red, blue, silver and black colours for the portable 6.4-cm (2.5-inch) form factor at Rs 5,600 for 500 GB and Rs 7,700 for 1 TB. The Backup Plus Desk 8.9-cm (3.5-inch) drive is priced at Rs 8,500 for 2TB version and Rs 12,000 for 3 TB version.
