  • Backup Plus firmware update tool for Mac OS

    This update is for customers using Mac OS and experiencing a disconnect error or Time Machine hangs. See instructions below for applying the update.

  • NTFS Driver for Mac OS

    The NTFS Driver (5MB) allows you to mount the NTFS partition on supported Seagate drives as read and write (NTFS would normally be read only in MacOS), so the drive can be used to drag and drop files between a computer running Mac OS and one running Windows.

  • Seagate Dashboard 3.0 for Mac OS

    Seagate Dashboard is software that originally came on the Seagate Backup Plus, Seagate Slim and Seagate Central drives. This software allows the user to run diagnostics and adjust drive settings, like turning off drive lights. If the software has been deleted, it can be downloaded using the link below.

  • Seagate Dashboard 3.0 for Windows

    Seagate Dashboard is software that originally came on the Seagate Backup Plus, Seagate Slim and Seagate Central drives. This software allows the user to perform backups, adjust drive settings, and share (upload) content to social media sites.

  • SeaTools for Windows

    SeaTools for Windows tests SATA, USB, 1394, ATA (PATA/IDE) and SCSI drives. It is installed on your system. SeaTools for Windows is completely data safe. If the drive passes SeaTools for Windows, your troubleshooting can move to other areas.

  • Thunderbolt for Windows

    This driver is required to allow the Seagate Thunderbolt adapter to be detected under Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista and Windows XP. An additional driver may be required for the Thunderbolt port on your computer (usually provided by the motherboard or Thunderbolt card manufacturer).
