What would you do if you lost:
- All of your photos and videos?
- Your blog posts?
- Your essays/projects for school or work?
- That book you’ve been slowly working away on?
I know exactly what I would do. I would sit down on the floor with a box of Kleenex and sob. Really.
I’m not a materialistic person so if you spill ketchup on my new white sweater, I’ll be mildly out-of-sorts for a moment…but then I’ll probably smile and go about my day, not another thought about it.
But when it comes to my creative output – my photos, my words, those timeless and irreplaceable moments of brilliance – I’m much more sensitive. Which is why I take precautions.
Seagate recently gave me an opportunity to test out their hard drives and I can’t wait to tell you all about them.
If you’re looking for the behemoth of hard drives to back up a large quantity of data (perhaps from several different family members’ computers…), you’ll want to check out the FreeAgent Desk Drive. Available to hold between 500GB and 1.5TB, the Desk Drives range from $89.99-$179.99.
The FreeAgent Go, on the other hand, is the ultimate portable storage solution. It’s sleek, stylish, and almost silent.
You’ll love that you can toss it in your purse so that you can back up and/or share your multimedia on-the-go. Its super-thin and there are ten colors to choose from. You can choose between 250GB, 320GB, and 500GB options ($99.99-$149.99).
Both drive options are simple-to-use (they come with pre-loaded software to make the whole process super easy) and include a 5-year limited warranty.
The price tags may seem a little hefty at first glance, but…really…is there a price tag on your work? Your perfectly crafted blog posts? Your daughter’s 1st birthday party? Your son’s championship baseball game? I think not.
Want to win a little pocketful of peace?
Here’s how to enter: Leave a comment that answers one or both of the following questions: (1) Do you currently back up your data? (2) Have you ever lost photos/documents/work on your computer? Share your “sob story.”
