"Simple and easy."4.0 starson 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.
