Hubby and I have started to clear out stuff. You know those items you keep around just because, or maybe you will need them etc. But have you ever asked yourself if there was a fire what would you grab? When I thought about it, it was not all the stuff I had accumulated but instead important papers and photos. With no time to grab everything I needed to figure something out, my solution to my problem was the new Seagate Duet!
Seagate Duet – A Cloud-syncing Portable Hard Drive for Amazon Drive
Seagate® Duet, a one-to-one cloud-syncing portable external hard drive for Amazon Drive. These two companies got together to offer you the best of local and cloud storage one extremely user-friendly device. This was important to me as I had never used a hard drive in my life. I was happy that when I opened the box there was only three items in there!
The drive delivers 1TB of storage and offers quick local transfer speeds and offline access. I was blown away that all this awesomeness was in a slim, lightweight design that was VERY portable. This makes it great to bring to grandmas or grab in case of an emergency.

I loved the ease of use and that I did not have to read through pages of instructions first. Everything transferred quick and easily from computer to hard drive allowing me to have plenty of space on the actually computer. This of course helped it run faster and smoother without an issue. Knowing I have 1 terabyte of storage makes me rest easy that I will always have the space I need for the important stuff.
