Backing up files is like flossing your teeth: You only do it to the ones you want to keep. And remember, hard drive crashes don't come with advanced warning. You have the choice in advance whether to be ready or to put it off until it takes a $1,500 restoration process to get those files back--especially photos and project designs. One of the things I like about this drive is that it is smaller. A terrabyte? Com'on, guys! Filling a terrabyte would wear the unit out. 500 gigs is all you need, then put it away for a rainy day (like when your computer crashes). Otherwise, I recommend a flash drive. And don't forget to ENCRYPT! If stealing a laptop is easy, stealing a portable hard drive...you figure it out!

I purchased this as a way to back up my XP computer until I could purchase a new one. So far, the process has been challenging to say the least. Apparently, the software installed, but I have yet to be able to complete a back up. On the main screen, it tells me that the External Disk is "unavailable" even when the product is connected with the USB. The screen will tell me that the backup job is ready to run, yet, when I start the process, I get a message that "Job cannot run because of invalid destination." The screen for choosing the backup destination shows nothing other than "external Hard Drives" and a scale to set the alert for capacity. When I try to set this scale, I get a message to "select drive". Called the store for assistance and haven't had a return call. Debating whether to return this or pay to have a computer expert come to help me with this. Also, even though this purchase is only two weeks old, an update is available to an additional $9.95. Not sure it is worth the trouble.

toshiba Portable Hard Drive

Comments about Toshiba Canvio® Connect 500GB Portable Hard Drive (Silver):

I had a scan dish drive and I didn't think it was worth buying it. So I went into Staples and asked the gentleman what would be better for me. And he suggested the Toshiba Canvio connect 500gb Portable Hard Drive. I connected it to my computer and it saved all of my pictures. I am not much of a computer wiz to know what I am doing. I set it up so every Friday it scans new items to be put on the portable hard drive. I think my purchase was worth the money. I would recommend the portable hard drive for other people.

Peace of mind is a great thing

Comments about Toshiba Canvio® Connect 500GB Portable Hard Drive (Silver):

I set up the hard drive ... (well, my daughter did ...) and I forgot it. It tucked itself into an unused space behind my lap top on my desk. Along comes someone from Microsoft and takes control of my computer! without asking me ... I think. After the "Word Update" I'm missing three long documents (I had saved them) A few minutes later I found them on the Portable Hard Drive ... saved me wear and tear ... I have not traveled with the hard drive but I think I will definitely make the effort because I will be taking important business notes and I want no hanky-panky from Microsoft or any of the other big shots who might mess with my computer ... but if they do ... my trusty Toshiba Hard Drive is there to save the day.
