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.

terrible customer service

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

Made this order in the Bowling Green Ohio store at the Kiosk with the help of the sales person. Printed a receipt for next day delivery. Got the confirmation email after the order went in. Tried to track the order online and couldnt find the order number in there system. I called and spoke to a supervisor who said the order was there and it would not be on the site untill the next morning but he saw the order and it was scheduled to be delivered the next day. Next day comes and get a robo call at 9:00 am saying the delivery is being delayed untill the next day. Call and ask what happined to next day delivery. Was told by supervisor that a computer error caused a lot of orders to be delayed for a day. Mine was one.This is the third order I have made from Staples.com and each of the orders when I made them stated they would deliver the next day. First order was delivered 3 or 4 days after the scheduled day. Second order was delivered almost a week late. Now this order is a day late. Why tell us there will be a delivery on a specific day if you can never make that date? I really hate being lied to and 3 times is more than enough.

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

Installed without any issues. The control panel to setup the 3 backups was very straight forward. The panel window doesn't have a "-" to minimize the window. One of the backups didn't run so not sure yet about the backup software. Need to gIve the app more time before I can give it a fair review.
