"Simple and easy."on by beekaybee
Pros If you follow the instructions (recommend you print out the 23 page user guide) the drive works like a charm. After hooking it up I had to download a recommended update which was unevetnful, I set it to do the complete backup of my main computer and left
Cons I realize the software resides only on the drive but it would be nice to be able to click on a desktop icon to view backed up files instead of disconnecting the unit. Not a deal breaker by any means!
Summary I bought this on sale for $99 and I think it probably will still be avilable around that price.. I recommend it as an easy and simple way of creating a backup. The product claims to be able recover a computer from a hard drive crash or failure. I haven't had to do this (fingers crossed!) but I see know reason this wouldn't be the case given the performance in creating a backiup.
Pros It's easy to plug in, and it backup everything by itself
Cons After erasing everything from My computer, and wanted to reinstall My stuff from the Clickfree C6, there was nothing there, I lost everything, this is very hardbreaking, just wanted to warn others.
Pros user interface
Cons not MAC compatible
Summary Nice drive, but the labeling is misleading.
This product does NOT work out of the box with iMAC Snow Leopard, and I have the emails with tech support to prove it.
Too bad, because their user interface is pretty nice, except for the annoying timer
Pros Easy to use, saves trips to the technician.
Cons There are no cons.
Summary I am very pleased with cklickfree C6 and have recommended it to 2 friends who bought it and are also pleased.
Pros it's Ok for the size at 1TB
Cons there are better choices like Western Digital and others
Summary don't buy
