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.

Toshiba 1TB Drive

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

When a back up drive crashes, you wish you had two back ups. With the Toshiba, I now do. It is used to have a back up for photos and other items that are not replaceable. It worked as wanted without a problem.

Good price and fairly fast

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

I use this for backing up my hard drive. It does transfer the data quickly. I've fortunately not needed to restore my drive so I really don't know if it will do so. The drive itself seems to be a good product, but the included software has an annoying feature which notifies you that a newer version is available for downloading. When you go to download the new software, you find that they want $9.00 for the upgrade.
