Seagate offering free data recovery service with new GoFlex Turbo drives

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Seagate offers free data recovery with a new line of hard drives.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Recovering data from a hard drive that has stopped working can be expensive .   That’s why Seagate’s new GoFlex Turbo Performance Drive with SafetyNet data recovery services is a pretty big deal.  Product line manager Charmaine Garcia…

“What Safety Net is, is if you experience a data loss caused by any reason and you purchased our GoFlex Turbo, within two years of purchasing this drive, we will provide you data recovery services free and attempt to get your data back for you.”

There are no guarantees that data can be recovered  but Seagate says it should be successful performing the recovery even remotely most of the time.    Pricing for the GoFlex Turbo Performance drives starts at about 120 dollars for a 500 gigabyte version with the 750 gigabyte model going for about twenty dollars more.   You can find us at    I’m Fred Fishkin.
