Another concern is using this drive with Windows’ own Backup. Since Seagate’s Dashboard is only a media backup, many would need to use some other backup software. One of them would be Windows 7’s own backup. But unfortunately:

backup fail

This isn’t the drive’s fault mind you, but it’s something you should know.

4K aligned drive lets you be used as a source of backup using Windows’ own backup utility. Maybe Windows 7 has issues detecting it as a 4K aligned drive by default. It shouldn’t happen with software like Acronis which is made keeping 4K aligned drives in mind. Keep in mind that if you’re going to use this drive for backing your drives, don’t use Windows backup with any drives irrespective of the manufacturer with 4K alignment by default. But if you do, use it with a backup software that is made keeping 4K aligned drives as a backup drive in mind.

But will Microsoft correct this issue??

Rs. 9,939$139.99£105.96

The prices for India online retail is about Rs. 2,000 /$38 more, but then again Asia Pacific has 3 years warranty on the drive, whereas others have 2.
