Drive A+, Bundled Software, D-

By Mochaman

Toshiba HDD is lite and fast as compared to 2TB WD My Passport PHD.� IMHO, bundled software was useless. ... For example- backing up "files & folders": software 'allowed' change of Source drive (other than default C:) However, upon execution, only C drive contents copied to Toshiba. Call to Toshiba TS confirmed this, then they said, I'd have to contact software Mfgr....WRONG ANSWER! �Why doesn't Toshiba vet the software they bundle with their products???

Only lasted about three months then just broke down.

The hard drive worked ok for a couple of months and I transferred about 50 movies to it and two burn marks appeared in the drives face.(see image) I watched four or five of these and then it began freezing half way through a movie. This got worse and worse until the movies would no longer play and after that the drive would no longer show up on my computer. Looks like money down the drain. I used to like Toshiba too.

Big Mistake

I bought this thinking I could use it as an external drive with my new 2016 Apple iMac 27 desk top configured with the biggest and fastest that Apple offered. Big mistake.....it's not compatible with Sierra and won't accept any data. Works ok on my 2009 iMac currently running Yosemite and before that Mavericks and Snow Leopard. A check of the enclosed read me file confirmed the lack of support.....discovered this after I bought 3 of these drives. This unit needs to be better identified to clarify compatibility issues and avoid the expense of having to purchase compatible replacements only days after purchasing this unit. If I could give this zero stars, I would......

Works as expected

Plugged it into a Windows 10 machine and it shows up in Windows Explorer and can be written to and read from. The glossy shell is a bit of a fingerprint magnet. As with all USB 3.0 devices, the micro end of the cable breaks contact any time you look at it so I find it best to hide the drive somewhere on by desk where it won't get moved.

question

I see that the drive has preloaded software to use with a Windows machine and software to use with an apple machine. Can you activate both software so that you could move from a Windows machine to a Apple machine and vice-versa? I assume this is allowed since the whole purpose of these Canvio external drives is portability and compatibility.

I had a friend who was letting me borrow his laptop to use my hard drive and such.. He had a Mac and it worked fine without really any effort. I eventually borrowed another computer ... It was Windows. No problem with going from a Mac to Windows. Hope this helps you! :)
