This just goes to prove that size does not matter. This portable hard drive is smaller than my wallet but big enough to get the job done. Back when I had my very first PC, there was no such thing as a portable hard drive for back up purposes. The most sensitive things were stored on a 3.5in floppy. So when that hard drive died, I lost almost everything because I didn't have enough floppy drives so I learned my lesson the hard way. Now, I have to have a portable drive that is twice the size of my hard drive so that I can back up my entire system with no limits. This Toshiba is perfect for getting it done. It comes complete with everything needed including software

The Toshiba Canvio 1 TB portable drive is slightly smaller than my 1 TB Seagate FreeAgent To Go drive. The Canvio has a USB 3.0 connection, but I did not observe any appreciable speed increase even when used through a USB 3.0 port on my Core i5 ultrabook. Setup was simple - just plug it in and Windows manages any drivers, etc. needed.

The NTI Backup Now EZ software, however, was a disaster. I made a mistake in the destination location during the initial setup. The setup process seemed to take a long time to complete. There was no way to edit and correct the problem. I had to uninstall the software through Windows Control Panel; it has no uninstall option! After reinstalling, the backup seemed very slow. Finally, I opted to remove the software completely and use Windows 8 File History.

The drive seems to have a vibration during operation, and I noticed it did get slightly warm to the touch. So far, the drive has functioned perfectly, but I am not sure I will trust it with important files as much as I would my Seagate portables.

Bottom Line: The drive is a convenient size and capacity for traveling and backup, but I do not recommend the NTI backup software. Also, the noise and vibration are factors that could turn into problems later. I just do not trust it to save anything that possibly could not be replaced.

Small, fast, does what I need it to

Comments about Toshiba Canvio® Connect 1TB Portable Hard Drive (Silver):

This drive comes with NTFS formatting, which is not ideal for me because I am a Mac user. While Macs can read NTFS-formatted drives, they often will not write to them. So I assumed I would have to reformat the drive.
I was pleased to discover that among the included software was a Mac NTFS driver. I checked reviews for the driver, and they were good. Since I planned to use this for my iTunes files, I thought it might be good to keep the NTFS formatting so that I could also use the drive with a Windows PC.
So far, the drive has worked very well.
The drive also came with PC backup software, which I have not used.

Comments about Toshiba Canvio® Connect 1TB Portable Hard Drive (Silver):

I've not had too much luck with portable hard drives. They all seem to die prematurely. Got this one on sale at the local store to use as my traveling movie jukebox. Filled it up yesterday with over 700 movies. It has room too spare and the USB 3.0 rating made things go a lot faster. .

Comments about Toshiba Canvio® Connect 1TB Portable Hard Drive (Silver):

I've been using Toshiba products for what seems like forever. I've never had any problems with any of the Toshiba External Hard Drives I've purchased, at present I have five of the small portable units and 4 full size units. All drives are still functioning great without any problems save one which Toshiba replaced even though the product was one week over its stated warranty. More than I can say for Western Digital products. Out of five units only two are still viable. This unit is very quiet and never seem to get over heated.
