The Seagate Replica is an automated hard drive backup device. Upon being plugged in via USB, the unit automatically checks online for updated software, installs it if necessary, and starts copying everything on the hard drive onto itself. An indicator light blinks while it works. When finished, it can be accessed like any other portable drive to retrieve individual files. To recover your entire hard drive's contents, plug it in, turn on your PC, and insert the included boot-up CD. Restoration is automatic.

Note: this device is compatible with Windows only.
