Data protection included​

Whether you’re using the drive to store precious memories or important work, you don’t want to worry about your SSD being compromised or damaged.

Fortunately, this Seagate SSD offers support for Rescue Data Recovery Services – which is included with your purchase.

This helps protect your data from anomalies like power outages, natural disasters, user error, and viruses for the duration of the drive’s 3-year warranty.

Expand your Xbox game library with the Seagate Expansion Card

The highly compact plug-and-play drive requires no cables or installation, and can simply be plugged into the purpose-made slot at the back of the Xbox Series X|S consoles.

Article 2

The One Touch HDD also offers an array of software which makes it easy to back up all your important files.
This allows for either on-demand, one-click backups or scheduling automatic backups in hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly intervals.
You can also mirror folders for simpler file management.

this is extremely useful, as just before I leave, I can plug and start my backup to finish overnight

Salutations...
Article 1: The Seagate Expansion SSD 1TB would bo very convenient for doing critical data backup such as personal media videos and images. Also, being not conversant with using SSDs, this will be a good opportunity to learn more "on the job", if I win one.
Finally, and this applies to Article 3 below, my 1TB WD My Passport external hard drive is now about over 20 years old, no longer reliable or dependable, not very user-friendly, and no longer meets my space requirements. So winning a state-of-the-art SSD will be a possible candidate to do the job better.

Article 2: The Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X or S won't be useful to me, as I'm not a serious "gamer", and more relevant, I don't own or use a Xbox Series X or S.

Article 3: But first prize for me, would be to win a Seagate One Touch HDD 4TB Silver, as it would resolve all the issues mentioned above, I'm familiar with using an external HDD, and at last I'll be able to sleep easy knowing all my data, files, software et al residing on my Lenovo All-In-One C470 is backed up to date and easily accessible and retrievable. And I would be able to use it to abck up my wife's desktop PC, and probably also my Samsung SM-A505F smartphone.
So tet's hope I get lucky. How will you inform me when I've one it, or you decide my reponses of worthy of a reward?
Kind regards, from Jasper Edrich.

Free Photography plan and data protection​

Additionally, each purchase of the Seagate One Touch drive includes several value-added features.

Firstly, you get incredible photographic tools with a 4-month Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan worth over R600.

The package includes Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom – which enable you to edit, organise, store, and share your best photos.

In addition, each drive includes an annual subscription to Mylio Create, which lets you organise your media and adds automated protection.

For peace of mind, Rescue Data Recovery Services is also included, ensuring protection of your most precious memories and important work.

This will cover you for data loss and retrieval services in the rare event that the drive fails or breaks because of natural disasters – such as flooding, lightning, or a fire.

File transfers can go up to 400MB/s when used with a compatible USB 3.0 port. This means you can copy gigabytes of files in mere seconds.

Will save me a lot of time

Thanks to the card’s seamless integration with Xbox Velocity Architecture, you will get the same fast loading speeds and can still use the Quick Resume feature to jump between titles within seconds.

Fast loading = more gaming time

Seagate’s Expansion External SSD

"File transfers can go up to 400MB/s when used with a compatible USB 3.0 port. This means you can copy gigabytes of files in mere seconds."

This would be ideal especially when transferring large files between my pc and server (compared to server speeds i.e. 100mb/s).

Article 1 - Seagate Expansion External SSD

High speed file transfers up to 400MB/s - far faster than mechanical portable hard drives.

"Firstly, you get incredible photographic tools with a 4-month Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan worth over R600."

This would be nice as I'm currently using free to use products which doesn't provide as much functionality as Adobe class products.
