Seagate also announced a new 2TB slim drive.

Seagate has also upgraded the Backup Plus FAST software's Dashboard to include a mobile backup application to provide protection for mobile device data.

Users need only install the free Seagate Mobile Backup app on an iOS or Android mobile device to back up all of the photos and videos from that device to a drive or a cloud service.

Backup from mobile devices can also be sent directly to the drive via a Wi-Fi connection or through cloud services such as Dropbox or Google Drive while on the road.

The 4TB Seagate Backup Plus FAST portable drive is available for $299.99. The high-capacity Seagate Backup Plus is also available in 2TB capacities for $129.99 and 3TB for $159.99.
