Seagate Turbo To Include SafetyNet Recovery Software


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

This is the first time Seagate has included a data-recovery service with the price of the drive itself.

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 will cost $139.

The SafetyNet program included in the unit's price covers a single recovery attempt on the drive during the two-year period. The recovery will entail either a remote fix or the drive would have to be sent to Seagate. The company does not guarantee the data can be recovered.
