New Seagate External Hard Drive Works with Mac & PC Interchangeably

The Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex external hard drives allow for multiple connection types and use with both a Mac and PC interchangeably  - going back and forth between the two - without reformatting the drive. 

Seagate's new FreeAgent GoFlex external drive hard drive allows you to store data from a PC and Mac interchangeably onto one single drive.  The flexibility doesn't stop there as Seagate offers optional cable adapters for connecting via USB 3.0 and FireWire 800 cable connections.  A USB 2.0 cable adapter cradle and cable are included, which displays the integrated capacity meter as well.  You may choose the optional adapters to upgrade your drive to a faster speed or for more versatility.

As if Mac/PC interchangeability and connection flexibility weren't enough, Seagate includes an Automatic Continuous Backup software that backs up your files real-time as you change them.  No more scheduled backup times needed, just use the easy Seagate Dashboard to manage backup options and view statistics!  Note:  Reformatting to HFS+ required to use backup software for Mac or Time Machine software.

CNET gave the FreeAgent GoFlex the esteemed CNET Editors Choice award in 2010.  See a video demo of the GoFlex family here:
