Seagate today introduced the GoFlex Turbo external hard drive, which is bundled
with its SafetyNet data recovery software.

Seagate has included a data-recovery service with the price of the drive
The two GoFlex Turbo SKUs
are now available at Best Buy. The drives are USB 3.0 with a spin rating of
7,200 rpm. The 500GB model has a $119 suggested retail, while the 750GB version
