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.

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

Love this hard drive. This drive is a plug and play and so easy to use. It almost installs itself. If you don't know much about computers you will still be able to use this drive. There is so many things that you can use this for. You are able to store your documents, videos or pictures. We will be using it to do a full back up of our computer. This will prevent loss of software and any important documents. I use my personal computer for home and also for work related documents. This is a great buy for the money it cost. It will give you piece of mind.

No instructions in the box. I had to call twice before someone could tell me how to install this product. It works great but, they should put instructions on how to install in the box.

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

I have another Toshiba Canvio for my MACBOOK PRO and it is just for MACS. This one is for both MACS and Windows users. I liked it but not as much as my other version. I returned it only for this. I would get just a Windows one and not compatible with both the next time. Toshiba back-ups on the MACS are fast and easy.
