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):

        I know there are many drives on the market to choose from but I love Toshiba drives and they are the only type I'll buy. They boot up quickly and I'm able to retrieve data just as quickly.

              This external hard drive is exactly what I wanted to get rid of my old antiquated desk top computer. I now have a Microsoft Surface tablet and needed to let the dinosaur go however I needed somewhere to store my stuff. The young man at Staples helped me find exactly the right external hard drive to meet my needs. I wish it was a little easier out of the box but my husband has figured it out. I particularly like that it is portable this will be very convenient. The space is also just the right size to hold all the family pictures.

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

                    We were looking to back up files on our laptops and decided to purchase a portable Hard Drive. We are also working on a budget, hoping to keep costs under $100.

                    Ultimately the Toshiba Canvio 1TB appeared to have a decent rating and fair price. It is not best looking portable Hard Drive, but it works quite well.

                    We have purchased a few of the WD My Passports in the past, but we are not happy with having to convert the Drive for MACs. We are satisfied with the Toshiba Canvio 1TB because it is compatible with PCs as well as MACS.
