I have purchased several of these of various sizes to use for Mac system backup and backup of music, photos and other media. Every one of them has worked just fine. I never use any included backup software; Super Duper for Macintosh works beautifully and has saved my system and data several times. The best thing about these drives is that they are so inexpensive that you can maintain 2-3 rotating copies of anything without "breaking the bank." BTW, several reviewers have talked about losing xxx GB of movies, music, or whatever... Well, I have to say that anybody who keeps just one copy of digital media (pictures, movies, music) is asking for trouble. A hard drive is mechanical and it can fail, and if it does, all your stuff is gone, and a warranty won't get it back for you.

On first use it took 5 tries before it finally stated my backups were complete and I was protected. After my Toshiba Satellite crashed due to it being in sleep mode when my battery ran down (Never let a Toshiba laptop go to sleep or put it in sleep mode) ; I had to use it to back up my system when all other attempts to boot up failed. When it finally restored my C drive it created different partitions( Causing me to lose a lot pf disk space) and uninstalled my antivirus programs and deleted all of my Toshiba (of all things) application shortcuts from my Start menu programs list. It also deleted some other items. I am not sure if I've found them all yet. The next time my computer crashed I couldn't get the BU drive to boot up my computer at all. So after I fixed my computer by other means I checked out the BU drive and found a bunch of missing files and folders that it had shown earlier were backed up. Due to NO HELP that dI could find ANYWHERE, I deleted all of the back up images and files and re-installed the software for the BU drive. Then with absolutely no data at all on the BU Drive, it showed that all my data was backed up and my computer was fully protected when there was nothing on it! Therefore; do not trust what the Back up program says! In 40 years of working on computers; Toshiba products have proven to be the most unreliable and worst I have ever encountered!

Good little drive

Comments about Toshiba Canvio 3.0 500GB Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

I've had this Toshiba external hard drive for about a month now. It's easy to use. Since I use it for my MacBook Pro I had to use my disk utility to get it to interface with my computer, but that was pretty simple to do. And I like the fact that it is so compact. It takes up very little room in my bag, so I can always take it with me.

Comments about Toshiba Canvio 3.0 500GB Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

"This is a very easy unit to set up and run. I'm using Windows 7 and it set up o.k. Nice and compact so it doesn't hog up a lot of desktop space. I bought two of them. One I store my files on and the other one backs up the first one. When I did my first back up it took a total of 10 and 1/2 hours to back up 250 GB's of data. So.....that was all day!
