Features

SmartAlign™ technology for easy 4K migration

A change is coming in the hard drive industry. The smallest sector of organised data on a drive is moving from 512 to 4,096 bytes. The format, known as Advanced Format (AF) 4K, offers advantages such as increased efficiency, but migrating your drive can be challenging.

Luckily, Seagate® is ready to help you make a seamless transition to 4K sectors.

Seagate® Barracuda® Green desktop hard drives feature Seagate SmartAlign technology, which automatically does the work of AF migration in the background. The drive’s performance is not affected, and there is no need for the time-consuming utilities that are required by other AF-enabled drives.
