If you're tired about them, simply don't bother looking at the deals or don't comment on them even! Its a bit like people who complain about a tv programme they watched...press the button and change channel! Problem solved.

I recently purchased the 500gb version of the drive, and just wanted to find out if anyone knew if it's possible to copy data across to it directly in Windows Explorer.

I tried it, but nothing would copy. I had to use the built in backup software, but I really don't want to be tied to this.

Any ideas? :thinking:

Nice software tool for backing up your data.

FastCopy is the Fastest Copy/Delete Software on Windows.

I've had two of the 500GB drives and they do not have an off switch, thus you are forced constantly to keep removing either the USB on the back of the unit or from the PC.

Both of mine broke which meant sending both units back to Seagate for repair/replacement thus losing all data on them (the drive unit would just flash wildly when plugged in), sadly they haven't returned either of them and I am still pursuing the legalities of it.

lol, I was gonna say the same.

new deal, new post.

I see tons of posts here that I'm not interested in. I'm not interested to go to ASDA to save 5p on a 10p product, but that's just me, I don't go on the thread telling off the poor guy!

Oh , poor you!! How sorry we are that you find it tiresome .......perhaps it might be easier if you either didn't press the button to bother reading such tiring deals.....or better still get off your backside and contribute rather than criticise others who've made the effort. Mind you....you did inform us a while back that you went into Poundland and picked up a USB thingymajig for £1..............personally I find that tiresome that you need to tell us how much something cost in POUNDland.......... :-)

And as for your £2 here, £ 3 there complaint...the best price I've seen for this is £ 89.99 and upwards...so this is a good deal!!!

Voted HOT

Bought one of these last year for my mac around the same price but it was only 260GB.

Great price, voted hot.

I don't like these drives, they have a 'micro' USB connector at the back which doesn't fit the vast majority of other make external drives USB cables. This means if like me you have a few different makes of external drives it can be a pain as you have to swap the cable instead of using the one already plugged into the PC.

The micro USB connectors are not as durable as the larger standard USB type. The first one of these drives I had went back as it was loosing USB connection because the socket had become slack.

Buy an external drive with a standard cable -- no matter where you take the drive someone will have one if you forget it.

I'd only consider buying another one of these drives if the price was ridicuously cheap - this one isn't.

Excellent price for the volume of storage but I would recommend that people anyone spending this type of money should consider either paying more for a drive with better interfaces or dropping down to a smaller drive with better interfaces for similar money. But if you are after a lot of storage and don't care about the slow USB interface then this is your boy!

I was reading this and thought of putting info about the drive that I just bought in here but it's better as a separate post................... which I have just done.
