Will my Seagate drive work with MacOS 10.8 (Mountain Lion)?

Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) was released to the public in late July 2012. Seagate has evaluated current product lines to determine which ones are compatible with it. For our external drive products whose hardware is supported, Apple Time Machine is a very good backup solution.
Please note that all external drives should be disconnected while performing the update to Mountain Lion.

For more information on Apple Time Machine, please see:

Use manual drive mapping if the drive does not appear on the desktop.

*Seagate Diagnostics will disable the built-in sleep function on the drive when installed. This will solve drive disconnect issues seen with some older GoFlex series drives.
