Optimize disk performance

Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Touch is preformatted exFAT for compatibility with both Windows and Mac computers. If you use the drive with only one type of computer, you can optimize file copy performance by formatting the drive in the native file system for your operating system. Toolkit provides a quick and simple means of initially optimizing the drive for best performance.

You can also manually format your drive. See Optional Formatting and Partitioning for details.

 Formatting erases everything on the storage device. Seagate highly recommends that you back up all data on your storage device before performing the steps below. Seagate is not responsible for any data lost due to formatting, partitioning, or using a Seagate storage device.
