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.

I talked to Toshiba Support very helpful. They told me how to reformat so I can use on a PC or a Mac to transfer video for editing. Worked really well.

I purchased this unit on sale, great price, easy to use, and nice compact size. I did not need this much storage, but that is better than not enough.

easy to use

By Toshiba Canvio, no complaints.

from Kearny NJ

Verified Buyer

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

for something so small, this packed a lot of storage space.. Easy to use, easy to read directions and it comes from a company that is known for their reliable hard drives. 500 GB of storage is almost nothing lately, but it's handy to upload music files from one computer to another, or to transfer files faster than using your FTP servers or drop box. I have no complaints and if needed, would not hesitate to buy another similar unit (albeit with more storage next time) as another back up to my work files.
