Strictely technically, it works fine, but the software that suposedly help one to do back-ups is completely user unfriendly. I'm relatively good with computers, and I've never seen a software that is so bad. I spent a lot of time to try to figure out what and how to manage it, but it's just impossible (and again, I'm good with computers). Not only is it difficult to understand the configuration of the back-ups, but also when one does the back-up, the program shows that it's being done, but when looking for the back-up, it's not there, nor does it show where it is being backed-up.
Also, the software allow you to make weekly back-ups at certain time ( like 2.00 pm, every Monday), but if you don't have it conected with the cable, it don't remind you, nor does it do the back-up automatically when you hook it up (it should, since the last back-up time was "Missed", but it doesn't.
The cable used to conect it to the computer, is not a "normal' USB cable, so if you loose it ( or don't remember where you left it), there is no way for you to get to your backed-up files. I bought it while I was travelling, so I'm not sure if I can return it anymore, but I'll buy a different one, because this one is terrible. Every time I try to use it, it's a frustration, and I'm afraid that I won't be able to recover my backed up files. I used serveral other brands, and not problem, so I reccomend you buy another brand.
