Seagate intros Replica slimline backup box

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Data backups can be a painful process, so Seagate’s designed a storage gadget that’ll backup everything from your photos and emails to your browser’s bookmarks in, it claims, just three easy steps.

Seagate's Replica: just three steps to backup heaven

Replica only requires you to hook its USB 2.0 cable into your PC and accept the software licence’s terms before an entire backup of your PC can be performed.

It then stores copies of all your files in the same structure that they’re organised in on your PC, so finding those all-important pictures should be pretty simple if your hard drive goes tits up. Just drag and drop your chosen selection to get them back onto your PC’s HDD or SSD.

The vertical stand only comes with the multi-backup option

The firm’s designed two Replica models: a 250GB unit for single PC backups and a 500GB unit for multiple PCs. Both spin at 5400rpm and measure roughly 142 x 101 x 18mm, but only Windows XP or Vista users need apply.

Seagate said Replica will be available next month, priced at $200 (£137/€151) for the multiple unit and $130 (£89/€98) for the single-PC model. UK dates or prices haven’t been discovered. ®
