I purchased the drive in December of 2016 7 months later it is dead. I cannot even get it to mount in order to run diagnostics on it. otherwise I would have tried to re partition it. I purchased the disk because the sales blurb said it rugged. The disk had significant usage given that it is my main photo disk. Luckily I have the data backed up 9 ways to Sunday (actually only 2 ways) so it is not a total tragedy but it is a pain. It is to late to initiate a return through Amazon. It will take weeks to get an replacement from Seagate and I need to ship it to them at my expense. Actually I didn't do due diligence with this purchase. Had I known the real manufacture was Seagate I would have bought a different disk. (I have had trouble with Seagate before)
I purchased this 4 months ago to back up my late '13 Retina MBP while traveling the globe. I chose USB-C for top speed and thinking it would last me years without having to upgrade.Unfortunately, USB-C is not backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 2, even with an Apple adapter cable. My research turned up zilch on this matter and techs at both LaCie and the Apple Store were puzzled until we determined it just won't work.Thankfully, they had the same drive with a Tb2 interface in-store. This drive (USB-C) does, however, come with a USB3 cable that allows full functionality with my MBP.Buyers be informed! Other than this, the drive works flawlessly. I decided to keep them both. FYI, 2TB Tb2 drive is slightly thicker than the 2TB USB-C drive.
I have been using lacie branded hard drives for many years since I do a lot of music recording and video editing and I haven't had any problems with any of my hard drives, I love how portable and durable this guys are so if you're looking for a portable drive I would highly recommend this little guy.
