Carole, St Albans

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Size and style are good
Bad points:
This item doesn't do as it says on the box! OK for storing individual files etc but the programmes for back-up very difficult even with the help of the support team. Glitches in the programme results in inability to backup data automatically and no way to backup emails! A big disappointment especially having spent so much money on it!

Irene , Midlothian Experienced, not expert!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This drive is very easy to use as a backup, whether you set it to backup automatically or simply copy your important files to it. It's superfast and does exactly what you ask of it. I haven't had this one long enough to comment on durability, but previous purchases have proved to be very good in this respect.
Bad points:
The preloaded auto software is in several folders. If you're not really used to these things there is a temptation to create another folder to put your own files into. I feel that if the preloaded software was in one overall folder, subdivided as necessary, the user could then use the main menu to write her or his own files into, and it might look tidier and more presentable. I realise that the more experienced user can just shuffle as required, but not everyone is an old hand with portable drives.
