Doing some spring cleaning and I have several old laptops that I have been holding on to for years. Mainly because they have documents and photos that I might possibly need someday. I made an appointment with the Geek Squad to backup 2 old laptops and my current laptop. I bought this little hard drive because it was on sale and I am extremely happy with the purchase. It got everything. Documents, photos, videos!! So much stuff with lots of space left for more! Also, you can take it anywhere because it fits in the palm of your hand. I highly recommend this compact, powerful hard drive!
I love how small and compact this is. Love that it had options for colors so we can tell mine from others. Holds amazing amount of pictures that I haven’t even scratched the amount and cleared off laptop and phone full of years of pictures. The pictures are the blue one but the black one is great too.
External hard drive was easy to install. It took a while to get the down loadable apps to get loaded and installed.
As a sidebar the package was delivered in a card board box, no damage but the box in the box was messed up torn and re- taped
I was afraid that it was damaged but it was ok.
It's actually needed if you own a HP Streamer, because it has a small drive that should be free for windows 10 updates, and all other programs stored on my WD Drive, my goal is to move the Windows10 system to my WD drive, but I need to buy additional software to do that.
I love how small and compact this is. Love that it had options for colors so we can tell mine from others. The color is a nice sky blue too. Holds amazing amount of pictures that I haven’t even scratched the amount and cleared off laptop and phone full of years of pictures.
A:AnswerIt comes with a cable that you just plug into your USB port. You will be able to move or copy anything to it that you can download or that is sitting on your PC. No software setup required. Just plug in, make sure you locate where the drive is (on my laptop, my hard drive is C:\ and this devices comes up as E:\ so I make sure anything I save or move or copy to this external hard drive is on E:\). From there, you can create your own file folders such as: E:\Photos of Canada Trip
A:AnswerBack up drives should usually be twice the size of the drive you’re backing up. You want to be able to store at least two backs ups on the drive. So yes, it will do back ups provided it is large enough to accommodate your drive.
