Do you have you a question about the Seagate Backup Plus Portable 4TB USB3 External Hard Disk Drive (Red)?

Q: The spec states USB 2 and 3 but there is only a USB 3 port?
Answer by Website User on 8th June 2021
USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, you will just get the speeds of 2.0 due to the hardware limitations.

It looks very promising although I haven't yet made best use of it

Bought to aggregate files from several smaller disks. Transferred files using docking station I bought at the same time. Very fast transfer, also very quiet. Not used since backing everything up but don't anticipate any problems.
