Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB Portable External Hard Drive Review

I bought Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB Portable External Hard Drive at the Best Buy store in Manhattan, New York city at the start of 2017 for about USD 69. 

Now I could probably get better price if opted to ship it online from Amazon store, see: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB Portable External Hard Drive with Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0, Black (STDR1000100)

Back at the end of 2015 I bought a brand new Asus laptop with 500GB internal disk storage, the main goal for this laptop was to post-process photos taken by my Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR camera, after switching from .JPEG to the RAW format, laptop started to run out of memory in about a year. To free up some space, I accidentally deleted some important pictures, which luckily I was able to restore. See: How To Recover Permanently Deleted Files (Canon CR2, JPG and more) on Windows

It was just the time to have a reliable backup for photos and video's. And here comes in Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB Portable External Hard Drive
