New Seagate Replica for easy and fast data backup and recovery
Seagate, leader in storage solution, introduced a new backup appliance that completely eliminates the need to manually learn, manage, or dedicate any time to the backup process. Unlike most backup utilities, 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. This new Seagate Replica is available in two configurations and delivers seamless backup for either a single PC or multiple PCs in a household.
Protecting digital assets and memories is important, but life is also increasingly busy. Research by Parks Associates indicates that one-third of consumers do not currently backup the content on their PCs, and of those that do backup, do so rarely because of the daunting, labor-and time-intensive task of burning CDs/DVDs or manually dragging-and-dropping individual files to flash drives. Some people simply don't remember to backup their digital content. The Seagate Replica backup appliance breaks down these barriers by eliminating the effort - no lengthy installation, scheduling or drag-and-drop is required. With the Seagate Replica solution there is no need to spend time rifling through countless files, photos and folders to determine what has been or still needs to be saved; 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.
"While people continue to amass digital content, many still don't understand the importance of backing up their libraries of personal memories, or they don't take the time," says Terry Cunningham, senior vice president, Seagate Branded Solutions. "Our goal is to deliver solutions that provide thorough backup protection yet are easy to use, time-efficient and simple to understand, and the Seagate Replica is about as easy as it gets."
The solution is meant to run in the back of the operating system and allow the end-user to continue his work on the PC. In addition, granted it's being left connected to the PC, the Seagate Replica continues to back up the system.
The Seagate Replica is designed for both single use and multi-PC use, two licenses that start at an MRP of US $129.99 and US $199.99.
