The Toshiba Canvio Connect is little space saver that fits right underneath my iMac. It is hard to believe it can hold 500 gig. Rather than the use the backup software it came with I chose to use the Time Machine app that came on my Mac. Reformatting the disc was a breeze and I have been running hourly backups with no problem. I have checked my system back ups and everything seems to be in order. The drive is extremely quiet and quite unlike my older and more expensive hard drive that emited a an irriating mosquito-like whine every time it was turned on. The price was great too. I would definitely recommend it and am now more likely to buy other Toshiba products.

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.

Backup storage

By Paul

Comments about Toshiba Canvio Connect 500GB Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive, Silver (HDTC705XS3A1):

I purchased this portable hard drive to free up space on my laptop. It's easy to use, pretty much plug it in with the supplied USB cord, and you're ready. It is small and lightweight, fits into the side pocket of the laptop bag without taking up too much space and I can bring so many more files to do work on the go. With the prices of such devices dropping all the time, I will probably buy at least one or two more for the flexibility of portable storage for different uses (work, music, photography and art, etc.) Unless you have files with extremely large data sizes, this drive is a great option for me and probably many others.

Comments about Toshiba Canvio Connect 500GB Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive, Silver (HDTC705XS3A1):

This is my second Toshiba hard drive they are one of best i've used yet the easy tech installed it for me and ran through all the features with me.
He installed the cloud for me which would have taken me forever to do, he also explained how use this feature and he explained that I had so much free space and that I would have to pay for any extra space I used..
This Toshiba is a loe easier to use than the one I replaced and work much better than the old I had.
This product in very much to my liking and intend to use this again in the future.
