View Full Version : [ubuntu] Anyone with a Seagate Free Agent Go? I need some advice on buying one

I want to buy a portable hard drive for my laptop and so far I decided to get a Seagate Free Agent Go 500GB.

What I am looking to know is:

- Are these Seagate hard drive stable enough or you have some bad experience with them and suggest some other brands?

- Can I create two partitions on this disk and whether these two partitions will mount automatically or I should mount them every time?

- I want one of the partitions on that drive to be encrypted, and what ever I copy into that partition somehow encrypt and decryption be possible only by providing some password or something.

Thank you very much.
