    Comments about Seagate® Hard Drives; Backup Plus® Portable Drive, 1TB:

    This was really easy to setup and use. I have been looking for a drive of this size to backup all my photos and other files and this works great. The price was also very reasonable. I would recommend this for any one that is only storing their photos on their local drive. Most people re-use their camera SD cards over and over and delete the pictures off. Don't wait until the internal drive dies to learn the lesson about losing all your pictures and backing up your photos on an external drive.

      Easy enough to use even for a non-techie like me. Holds a lot; gives you peace of mind. A lot of friends have recently lost a lot of their work and I didn't want that to happen to me, too.

            Comments about Seagate® Hard Drives; Backup Plus® Portable Drive, 1TB:

            I think the drive itself is probably fine, but I wish I had not downloaded the software. It would bave worked far better to just use the drive like a "stick drive" copying what I need to save to the drive and forget all the silliness of the time and planned backups. First of all, if you don't want to back up everything, it is not so simple or easy to make that happen with their back up program procs. Why would anyone want to back up the goofy downloads they get as they read email and the internet??

            If you buy this back up drive seriously consider using it manually for just what you want to save when you want to save it. Sometimes automoated is not so good.

            Now that the software is downloaded, I feel stuck to it (and have to work around it) and frankly, this has taken far more time than I planned to give it. I thought this would be quick, easy and straightforward. No , no, and no.

            BUT, the drive itself seems to be good quality. My intention from here on out is to open a few files where I can copy documents I need to save and move from PC to laptop to tablet and I just have to do a good old fashioned copy and paste....wish I had started with that plan from the start so I didn't have all the junque out there to deal with after doing the software downloads etc.

                    We replaced a desktop PC several years ago and we bought a similar Seagate portable hard drive for backup purposes. It has worked very well during those four years.

                    When it came time to purchase another portable drive to be used specifically with a laptop PC we got another Seagate. We expect to get the same satisfactory service from this unit as we have from the previous one.

                            I bought this item as storage for my WII. Did not work on that as it did not have a separate power supply. I was going to keep it but would not open up on when connected with laptop. Make sure when you are buying storage for your WII U that it has it's own power cable.
