Seagate Technology, one of the world's largest maker of hard drives, has unveiled the GoFlex Turbo performance drive with SafetyNet data recovery services (DRS). SafetyNet data recovery is the first recovery service offering by a hard drive manufacturer to be included as part of the purchase price of an external drive.

Seagate GoFlex Turbo external hard drive with 500GB and 750GB capacities boasts with 7200rpm spindle speed as well as USB 3.0 interface to provide up to 40% higher performance compared to typical external drives with 5400rpm motor and USB 2.0 interface. Seagate GoFlex Turbo performance drive and the entire family of GoFlex ultra-portable drives are the first to meet the new Universal Storage Module (USM) specification.

SafetyNet Data Recovery Services are included with the new GoFlex Turbo hard disk drive that provides additional protection in the event of data loss. Many things can contribute to data being inaccessible from a drive and Seagate is now providing a safeguard against mishaps such as: physical damage to the drive, human error and software viruses. The GoFlex Turbo performance drive includes two years of SafetyNet Data Recovery Service. The SafetyNet service covers one recovery attempt on a GoFlex Turbo drive within a two-year period. Seagate’s Data Recovery Specialists will determine whether remote or in-lab service is the best way to recover the data.

GoFlex hard disk drives are designed to provide interoperability between operating systems in order to work with both Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X computers.

The new GoFlex Turbo performance drives are now available from Best Buy for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $119.99 for 500GBs and $139.99 for 750GBs.

“With this new GoFlex Turbo performance drive, it is our aim to provide more peace of mind for the people who choose Seagate to back up and store their valued digital assets. When our products are used as a backup to a primary system or even as supplemental storage, people should know that they can get a further layer of assurance that their data will be there when they need it," said Patrick Connolly, vice president and general manager of Seagate’s retail product group.
