Seagate Backup Slim Touch vs WD My Passport 2 TB pls help

Recommended Posts

I checked Amazon and the Seagate website and none of them says that the data recovery service is included, maybe the link you are using is different, but at least in the specs it does not say so:

Both will be just fine. 

 

As for recovery service, with a good backup strategy you won't ever need that.  Never rely on one single drive to hold all your data or backups.

Remember the 3-2-1 rule of backups: 3 copies of your data, on 2 different media, with 1 of the backups stored off-site. 

Yes, it's expensive to store everything 3 times, but if a hard drive fails it's usually outside of warranty and then you'll still be paying the full price for data recovery.

In addition to what the partner has suggested here above, this link only gives out the Mylio program for one year and Adobe CC Photography for 2 months but does not include any data recovery plan.
