Seagate GoFlexes OS X HDD lineup
Seagate has refreshed its lineup of external hard disk drives (HDDs) for Mac OS X.
The new GoFlex drives allow Mac enthusiasts to easily backup (via Time Machine), shuttle or share their digital content.
A Seagate spokesperson told TG Daily that all next-gen GoFlex Mac drives are HFS+ formatted out-of-the-box.
As expected, the drives continue to support both Microsoft Windows and OS X.
