    Hard drive failed within six months of purchase. While still under warranty, had too many private and personal photos and documents stored on it to return for a new one. Lesson learned: it's not if a hard drive will fail, it's when. Always buy two. Done with Western Digital.

    I recently purchased this External HardDrive so that we could back up all of our family photos and documents. It does just that! The only problem with it, is that you cannot put programs on it. It will only store files and folders.

    Plenty of space. We were so glad it worked with the wireless modem!

    The drive is fine although updating the software did not go smoothly. The software does auto backup and works fine if you are satisfied with WD's choice of files to backup. You can deselect certain file types from backup but you cannot add file types. The restore is really stupid. It put file in one of six groups. Pictures, Music, Movies, Documents, Other and Mail. The files do not always appear where you would think. I find some pictures under documents. The software will not do a full backup of everything on you hard drive, only certain file types. It does look as though it covers most all data file types which in many case is fine.

    I selected this hard drive instead of one "built like a tank" because of all the magic features included in the plastic case. In the course of trying to make all the bells and whistles work, we came across a dire warning that it might destroy our computer if we didn't jump through certain certain arcane hoops. The complex convoluted instructions either did not work or were so confusing we couldn't follow them.
