Seagate Launches World’s Largest Capacity 5TB Mobile Hard Drive: After recently launching 2TB and 5TB storage drives for PCs, Seagate has now announced what it claims to be the world’s largest capacity mobile drive. Dubbed Backup Plus Portable, the mobile drive has a 5TB storage capacity. It’s also the world’s first mobile drive to be based on Seagate’s 5TB BarraCuda drive, unveiled last month.

The new Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5TB is priced at $189.99 and will be available in Black, Silver, Red and Blue colour options. The drive features customizable backup options and comes with Seagate Dashboard software on-board. It’s compatible with both Windows and Mac computers (after installing the required NTFS drivers). The portable Seagate drive ensures quick file transfers using USB 3.0 connectivity. It has a 20.5mm form factor with an aluminium cover. There’s no word about the drive’s price and availability in India yet.

As mentioned above, the Seagate Backup Plus Portable 5TB is based on the 5TB BarraCuda drive launched by the company last month. At the time of launch, Seagate claimed that its 5TB BarraCuda storage offers “best-in-class” performance for mobile PC computing. The drive comes in 7mm mobile or laptop upgrade designs and a 15mm thin design for external solutions. It is available in three form factors that are suitable for laptop/mobile storage, desktop/all-in-one storage and high performance desktop/gaming storage. The drive is supported by a 2-year limited warranty.

The company also announced its 2TB FireCuda drive last month. The FireCuda is claimed to be Seagate’s “fastest, thinnest and lightest 2TB hard drive in the market”. It uses 8GB of flash memory to offer better loading times for large files. Seagate explains that the FireCuda includes new firmware with algorithms that analyze how a system is being used. More recently, the company introduced a new SSD (Solid State Drive) for Microsoft’s Xbox gaming console. Seagate claims that the drive, dubbed Game Drive for Xbox SSD, offers elite gamers ‘fast boot and load performance’.
