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.

        This hard drive was purchased to save photos taken on trips. Tather than just trusting the memory in the laptop, eerything was saved on a nearly daily basis to this drive. It worked just fine. Now I am pretty sure not to lose the photos.

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

        I had very old laptop that had 'my life' on it!. I needed to save the files especially media files which was a considerable amount as it is with many people.

        I had a previous Toshiba external hard drive that was twice this size, and it would not work, tho it did on my new laptop. I was wondering if this one would work, and with how much effort on my part. The salesman was very helpful and thought perhaps the size was too big for my old laptop, pointing me to this one instead, which was very adequate for the storage needed, leaving plenty of room for more files, such as those from my cellphone.

        I plugged this into my laptop and it was up and running with NO effort on my part, and no problems! I'd been waiting to get this job done for a couple years! This worked great!
