    I bought this to backup and safely store files from my home computer in case it ever crashed or (worst case scenario) my house burned down. I wanted something inexpensive and small, but with enough memory to hold lots of irreplaceable pictures and videos of my family. This hard drive is roughly the size of a smart phone and is really easy to use. All you do is plug it into a USB port and your computer will treat it like any other storage device. Just drag and drop files. I backed up all my files (only used about 50 of the 500 GB available) and store the device in my fire safe. Anytime I need to back up more stuff I just get it out, plug it in, copy what I need, then back it goes for safe keeping. This is a great little device that's easy to use and doesn't cost a ton.

    I didn't even download the included software, but it backed up my 250g hard drive no problems using the standard windows backup utility...... Great value!

    I've begun to backup my files in this external hard drive. It's remarkably easy to use. Just plug in, follow the prompts, and watch the files back up. It's awesome because the files are zipped for backup meaning there's an immense capacity in this 500 GB drive. I've disconnected the USB cable for complete safety after backup but am happy to know that I can connect it up again and click to update the backup at any time. It's slim, compact, and looks good too!
