    • A. The "automatic backup" program that comes with this was a pain. Even when I had it set to keep just one copy of the files, it got full (500GB) backing up a desktop with two 160GB hard drives (320GB), and that did not include backing up the OS and programs; the only apparent backups were of file types it recognized (documents, pictures, etc.) and only made them available in that format. I removed the program that came with it, reformatted the drive, and use it for manual backups. Works great. Drag and drop, and take a nap. If you need real-time backups of the documents it recognizes, then use the automatic program - but then that decision would have been made by your IT department.

    • A. Yes! I am a IT guy and I use this to back up both as well. As long as your backup does not exceed the hard drive storage limit. You may need the 1TB if you have a lot of films that you are going to back up. If you are using Norton 360 you can run a automatic backup to the external drive. Hope this helped you out. Best regards, Frank

    • A. It depends on how large your laptop and desktop drives are. This product only holds 500 GB so please check how much space you have used on your devices.

    THIS PORTABLE HARDDRIVE MORE THAN MET MY EXPECTATIONS. IT IS REASONABLY PRICED AND THE SETUP FOR THE BACKUP PROGRAM WAS VERY EASY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE WANTING TO KEEP A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF DATA BACKED UP.

    Cord length to short-like toasters, coffee machines etc made in last 50 yrs-seems aimed at laptop user, desktop user will find it bit awkward-need to mount it on top of machine or books, get closer to USB port for secure connection or indicator light wont blink on
