          What is the difference between an expansion hd and a back up hd? I found a back up hd but need to use it for manuals and other files I plan on getting but don't want to backup an entire computer will the back up work ok?

            Answer

            Just get the regular expansion hd and not the back up one. Trust me. I bought the back up one from an employee saying you can just store things on there, and he was wrong. It literally backs up things, hence the name.

              Answer

              Yes, this drive will work perfectly with no issues. It will perform much faster too if your new laptop comes with a 3.0USB port. It also fully backwards compatible if it needs to be used on a 2.0USB port.
