Seagate Serves Replica for Your Whole-PC-Backup

Replica, the whole-pc-backup system from SeagateBacking-up your entire PC could be a major task, but Seagate’s new whole-PC-backup system Replica could make your life easier. Similar to Apple’s Time Machine, the device stores incremental copies of your entire PC.
 
How does the Replica work? If Seagate is to be believed, it is as simple as plug-and-play. You just plug the Replica in via USB, the bundled software gets launched, and soon as you accept the terms of usage, the device automatically starts backing up your entire system.
 
The back-up allows you to easily roll back your PC to a particular point in time. The best part about Replica is that it stores up-to-date copies of all your files in the same sequence as your PC. This makes navigation simple and restoration as easy as drag-and-drop.
 
Sounds interesting, but the Replica will initially be available in limited capacities of 250GB and 500GB only. Seagate has designed the lower capacity model as a single PC system, while the 500GB one will be compatible with multiple PCs and also feature a vertical dock. Both devices will come with a 5,400RPM hard drive.
 
The sleek-looking system measures just 142mm x 101mm x 18mm and comes with a 5-year limited warranty backup. Seagate has priced the 500GB model at $200 and the 250GB one at $130 with availability starting next month.

Right guys,

This new server install seems to be riddled with problems. As you may be aware I've spent the best part of 3 entire days up at the datacentre trying to get things running smoothly.

I'm back up there again this avo as there's another issue that needs fixing and I think I could well be pulling an all-nighter.

So if i've seemed a little distant and f*cked off this week, now you know why :)

BTW if anybody has a review that is ready to go live for today, could you get a fellow member of the editorial team to check it over and then make it live. We could use some fresh content to keep people on the site as much as possible during all this server crap.

I'm available to proof a review for the next hour if needed. You'll need another 3 days holiday to get over the three days that you were going to spend with your little 'uns, but instead spent sorting out server issues. Thanks for your efforts so far though mate :)

Nice one guys. I think Luigi's review is almost ready to go:

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?/input_devices/revoltec_fightmouse_pro/1

Some of the text is red where he's made alterations that I highlighted. Hitting the 'Erase Formatting' button (looks like a rubber/eraser) with the text highlighted should fix that.

Cheers :wavey:

Can you try again now please mate. OC3D has moved back and forth between servers so many times now I'm surprised that more stuff isn't screwed up!
