According to Gartner’s Forecast Analysis: PC OS Market, Worldwide, 2008-2015, 2011 Update, July 2011; “By the end of 2012 it is expected that 9.6 million of the installed base of personal computers will run Windows 8 and by 2013, it is predicted that 193.2 million personal computers in use will be running Windows 8.”

Without a doubt the Windows 8 launch is the most exciting upgrade of the year for the PC market. But before you make the upgrade, it is critical that you perform a back up, or, to put it more succinctly, pack up all your photos, music, movies, financial records and other important documents. Sometimes things get lost in a move and a Seagate Backup Plus hard drive can be your protection plan. This award-winning external hard drive from Seagate makes the task of backup and migrating of important data and content simple. Back up doesn’t need to be complicated and Seagate is making it easier than it has ever been.

Seagate Backup Plus hard drives featuring the Seagate Dashboard backup software removes the barriers to performing back up and content preservation by making it as easy as possible. With just a click of an icon, computer files are replicated onto a Backup Plus drive. Once you’ve performed the upgrade to Windows 8 or purchased a new computer, Backup Plus is ready to be put to work on your new system with all of your files. Additionally, after migrating your files, Seagate Backup Plus drives can also be set up using the new Windows 8 backup feature, File History.
