The Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive didn’t feature in our look at the best external hard drives but Seagate branded drives were included in our look at the best external hard drives for the Xbox One.

It works with both Windows and Mac-based PCs (as well as will work with your games consoles) with backup tools included for both computer types. As the name suggests, the hard drive is a slimline model with a polished aluminum enclosure so it looks pretty nice for an external hard drive and it easily fits into your bag amongst all your other stuff.

Besides its on-demand backup software which means you can set it up to back up every hour if need be, it also comes with a one-year complimentary subscription to Mylio Create plus two months of Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan.

It’s the little things that add up but, ultimately, it’s the convenience of plenty of storage in a lightweight casing that will lure you to the Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive.
