The Power of One
Barracuda hard drives give you the Power of One. One hard drive platform for every desktop storage application. One drive with trusted performance, reliability and simplicity and capacity.
Your drive is up to 45% faster than the last generation thanks to Seagate OptiCache™ technology. OptiCache™ technology combines the latest advances in hard drive microprocessors, DRAM and proprietary caching algorithms resulting in great performance improvements for you.
You don’t have worry about the transition to Advanced Format, 4K technology with Seagate SmartAlign™ technology. With SmartAlign™, 4K drives look and act just like legacy 512 byte sector hard drives which makes your adoption of Advanced Format – simple.
You get reliable read/write performance even in tough operating environments with Seagate AcuTrac™ technology. AcuTrac™ represents new advanced hard drive technology that can accurately control reading and writing on these “nano-sized” tracks spinning at 7200 RPM, even in high touch environments, like an all-in-one PC with loud music booming through the speakers.
Green where it counts
Barracuda desktop drives are produced using the most sophisticated manufacturing process in the industry, with a focus on environmental stewardship.
I recently upgraded my Western Digital HDD to a larger Solid State Crucial M500 480GB drive, (using
the crucial easy laptop install kit).
I cloned the HDD, using the automatic procedure in Acronis TrueImage HD using a boot CD, however, the Windows Update in the newly
installed SSD does not function and gives the message "windows update cannot currently check for updates becuase the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer".
I previously tried all other combinations in cloning the HDD to SSD with Acronis TrueImage HD, to no avail.
The computer was checked for viruses and malware prior to the cloning procedure with Bitdefender Antivirus 2013 and is virus free.
Also, internet explorer is not downloading files from hyperlinks. It will display the option for save as, open, save but will
proceed and open the download dialog box when left-mouse-clicking on hyperlinks of files which I choose to download and will not
display the image format jpg when I right-mouse-click on an image link and choose save image as but display the options for png and
bmp only. I installed the Chrome browser which worked, the problem with internet explorer persists.
I give you a link to my windowsupdate.log file,
I consider the windows update malfunction to a be serious problem, thank you in advance for any assistance.
