Seagate-Xbox-Storage-Card_8.jpg


We were provided with a Seagate Xbox Series X|S Expansion Card to unbox and were impressed by its slim and light form-factor, which will make it easy to take your game collection from one console to the next.

That's a lot of added storage in a compact design.

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

Like the idea that the drive is covered for 3 years warranty period.


Seagate One Touch Portable – Big storage in a compact package
With up to 5TB of storage

That is about the only thing this drive has going for itself


Expand your Xbox game library with the Seagate Expansion Card:

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.

It is great that you can use the Quick Resume although it is an Expansion Card

Feature: File transfers can go up to 400MB/s when used with a compatible USB 3.0 port.

Reason: This feature is really helpful in cases where I need to copy movies and series from my laptop to the hard drive so I can play them on the TV.

Article 3:

The Seagate Expansion Card will allow me to expand my library, as the built-in SSD space of the xbox simply ain't enough. Especially with game pass...

Article 1:

It is an external SSD, that will work wonders with the new xbox, via USB 3 - great for gaming and multimedia management, as some Xbox X|S dedicated games can only play from the internal SSD, so I can quickly transfer some internal games to this external SSD, if I need space on the internal SSD.

Simple and seamless backup
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.

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 1
As it’s a solid state drive, the Seagate Expansion SSD also offers greater reliability and much faster transfer speeds than typical external hard drives.

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.

The file transfer speed is ideal for me as I plan to establish a data capturing service.

Article 2
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.

In a data capturing service, it’s very essential to ensure that data is secured; customers will have a peace of mind on the security of their data with me.

Article 3

While the high-resolution graphics supported on the Xbox Series X and Series S provide incredible visuals compared to other gaming consoles, they also take up much more space.

The 802GB of useable storage on the Series X, or 364GB on the Series S, may be more than enough for some – but collectors and game hoarders will quickly find themselves filling up their drives.

Storage capacity provided by the Seagate SSD for gaming functionality is phenomenal. For me this feature will not slow down the devices be it for gaming or working.

Article 1: Great for gaming and multimedia management. Always important but along with the 3 year warranty and the data rescue service, it reduces stress of drive failure.

Article 2: The Seagate One Touch Portable hard drive is a high-capacity, pocket-sized storage drive that allows you to easily carry your digital files with you wherever you go. Seagate reliability and portability mean a lot to me.
