Cracking Hard drive
Bought this to store photographs on. I have two 2TB ones that are full already. This new one is far better value for money, less than the price of the two I have together. The only issue I have is it gets a little warm if it's used for a long period. Apart from that it's perfect.
I needed to save the complete contents of my computer, both as a backup and to re-install some of it on a new computer. This Seagate did the job perfectly.
Great does all it says
Nice compact hard drive works fine with a mac ios systems and fast
The Seagate Backup Plus 5TB Portable Hard Drive will include a 1 x 46 cm USB cable.

While I am not able to test individual products directly for any given use case. I can confirm external Drives can be used as dedicated games drives within Windows (or Linux of using Steam on Linux), you would need to follow the given guidelines for your Operating System to configure this.
As long as you use an appropriate file system there should not be an issue with partial downloads (this tends to happen on drives formatted in the FAT32 file system which has an absolute single file size limitation of 4GB)
On windows I would suggest NTFS or exFAT as appropriate to your Windows OS version, if using a Linux Distro then the ext4 file system would probably be a good choice.
