With the new Backup Plus Hub, Android and iOS device users are able to easily backup photos and videos, and free up their mobile device memory at any time.

Seagate Backup Plus Hub includes the Seagate Dashboard software with two years 200GB free Microsoft OneDrive® cloud storage so users can back up, access and share their favorite files from any device or location.
