    As far as a backup device, it's fine. Hardware is easy to install but the software interface leaves much to be desired. The manual is laughable. I think Obamacare works better. You have to make many guesses about what to do. But once up and running it takes care of itself.I'm using it to back up my ENTIRE C: drive but there are a handful of files it cannot back up because they are constantly in use. If you are looking for a bootable mirror image of your C: drive then use a RAID.Initially it took overnight to back up the C: drive.

      Comments about 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive (Red):

      I use the drive to backup my pc. It is very cheap portable storage that be moved to off-site location. The drive has very fast transfer rate and comes with a backup scheduling software. You can place files on the my-passport and delete them from your PC. The backup software will not delete during the next scheduled backup.

      Comments about 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive (Red):

      It works, and has some pre-loaded programs on it to "assist" with backups. The backup software needs to be a bit more intuitive IMO. Still running after one month. I do wish the drive light would just stop when in sleep mode, instead I just taped over the way too bright indicator so it would not illuminate the office after hours with a flashing glow.

              Transfer speeds (what else is this for?) are quite good. USB 3.0 transfer speeds are far better than its predecessor. Transferred ~400GB in a few (less than 4) hours.The backup software is the usual free software, upgrade-able to Pro for a fee. Backup software, while mostly successful, is nothing to write home about. Diagnostic is even more simplistic - nothing too complicated. OK status to tell you the test passed. That's it. My older WD drive has lasted me 5+ years with no problems. Hoping this does as well. I'll just delete the 'free' software utilities.

                        I own 4 of these things. They are reliable, and easy to use. Compatible with both macs and windows, and last for quite a while. Also good performance drives for small editing projects.

                            Compact, works faithfully and quiet. I average maybe 85Mbps using the drives with my Asus All-In-One desktop computer. I have 4 of these drives plugged into a corded HUB. But my speeds are the same, whether plugged into the HUB or directly into the computer. I stream movies from the drives with no problems and transfer files on and off the drive continuously with no problems. I have put each of my 4 drives in the Western Digital Nomad hard case and they do not overheat and stay new looking.

                            I recommend buying these drives. Now I'm wanting to buy one of the metallic ones!

                              I have four of these and use them mostly for running continuous backups of the computers in the house. The software that comes with them works well and gets the job done.

                              Also, when I travel, I'll transfer all of my raw images onto one of these drives as a backup to what is on my notebook so I have two copies to bring home.

                                Have 3 of these exact models. They are great for portability. They stack easy enough using rubber circular feet. They sync amazingly quickly. It is about 6 hours for a copy of about 75% used space.

                                    This is my D: drive, for thousands of digital photos. I have another Passport that I use for backup, and keep off-site. Larger (TB), smaller (size), no power cable needed, and faster than my failing external.

                                          Small, fast, reliable, USB powered, large capacity mobile hard drive. Plenty of room for all your digital stuff. Doesn't overheat, virtually silent and fast due to USB-3 connection. Like it a lot! :)
