Seagate today introduced a new backup appliance that eliminates the need to manually learn, manage, or dedicate any time to the backup process.
The new Seagate Replica backup appliance is a complete PC backup system, which automatically and continuously stores up-to-date copies of everything on a PC, including installed applications, operating system, e-mail, pictures, music, movies, Internet bookmarks and settings. Available in two configurations, the Seagate Replica solution delivers seamless backup for either a single PC or multiple PCs in a household.
Simply connect a single USB cable, click OK to the software license and the entire PC is backed up not just individual files and folders. After this simple action of accepting the software license, the Replica Backup System continues to run behind-the-scenes, so that no further interaction with the application is required. Additionally, when the Replica backup appliance is left connected to the computer, it will perform a continuous and complete backup of everything so the computer is not left vulnerable between backup events as it would be with scheduled software.
The multi-PC version (500GB) of Seagate Replica backup appliance includes a dock and is available for homes with two or more PCs for a manufacturer?s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $199.99. A single-PC version (250GB) of the Seagate Replica is recommended for use with individual laptop or desktop computers and is available for a manufacturer?s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $129.99. Seagate Replica Backup System will be available in May.
