    I use this drive for my Xbox One. 4TB for a pretty good price Simple setup, just plug it in to a USB port, Xbox recognizes it and formats it for you.

    I bought this item based on the ease of use, capacity, and reliability. I have purchased previous Passports and this one is just as easy to use. You just plug it in to your PC and it's ready to go! The software makes it easy to back up your data. In addition, the Western Digital brand is one I can trust as my previous ones are still running strong - I just needed one with more capacity.

    I purchased 4T because I needed to backup multiple computers. This hard drive is a great value for the price. Easy to use with Time Machine.

    After a recent scare of lost data (because my existing backup drives were full) I ran to upgrade my backup planning. A terrific BestBuy staffer recommended this as a popular solution, so I went with WD. The unit is fast and amazingly easy to use, and I feel much safer traveling with my laptop knowing that everything on it is also stored safe at home.

    Simple drive setup for a backup drive

    I handle IT and prepress for a small printing company and use technologies like Apple's Time Machine whenever possible to support versioning and simple file recovery. Our preflight station which checks files and does basic preparation for the prepress department also sends out PDF proofs and mirrors most of the company's email accounts to enhance responsiveness. This afternoon, the computer started complaining about the USB time machine drive getting full. The OS does purge older backups, which is usually acceptable but I tend to prefer to retire and archive the drive at that point, allowing for a decent chance at recovering older files if necessary. So the task was simple. Hit the local Best Buy, bought one of these four TB drives, spent a couple of minutes reformatting it for Mac (GUID/HFS+ journaled), hooked it up to the Mac, waited a few seconds for the Mac to ask if I wanted to use the new drive, it began its initial backup, and Bob's your uncle, it's done. Total console time, approximately 10 minutes. It's purring away and I know a simple layer of file protection never was in doubt.
