Use Toolkit to Set Up Security, Backups, and More

Toolkit provides useful tools that let you easily manage security, set up backup plans and mirror folders, and much more.

Enable security

Toolkit is required to enable security for LaCie Rugged SECURE. Be sure to install Toolkit in order to password-protect your device using Seagate Secure 256-bit encryption.

Set up a mirror folder

Create a Mirror folder on your PC or Mac that is synced to your storage device. Whenever you add, edit, or delete files in one folder, Toolkit automatically updates the other folder with your changes.

Optimize disk performance

LaCie Rugged SECURE is preformatted exFAT. If you use the drive with only one type of computer, you can optimize file copy performance by formatting the drive in the native file system for your operating system—NTFS for Windows or HFS+ for Macs.

 You can also manually format your drive. See Optional Formatting and Partitioning for details.
 Formatting erases everything on the storage device. LaCie strongly recommends that you back up all data on your storage device before performing the steps below. LaCie is not responsible for any data lost due to formatting, partitioning, or using a Seagate storage device.
