The Seagate Replica works with Windows XP or Vista machines and comes in 250GB and 500GB versions that will retail for $129.99 and $199.99, respectively – the latter of which is intended for multi-PC back up and includes a vertical dock. It operates in a continuous backup fashion, so your data is kept up to date without any user interaction, and several versions of each file are also kept in case you need to access an older version or restore the machine to a previous state.
In a nutshell, it provides Time Machine-like backups for PCs. The Seagate Replica itself even looks a bit like Apple’s Time Capsule device, but it drops the network component and cuts almost $200 off the base price.
