Can I use this drive with samsung tablet? the last one? it has android and usb type c.
Asked by: Daniel
I personally haven't tried that setup but in theory it should work. Most usb c drives I've connected to my Samsung note 10 plus work, so I don't see why this drive won't work with a Samsung tablet.

Can someone explain in baby terms if I would be able to use this hard drive to move files between both Mac and Windows (manually or through a backup) without erasing the drive between operating systems? Is this an ability specific to this hard drive?
Asked by: Aidan
You can format the drive for a Mac & PC so that you can read and write files to it. The 2TB My Passport Ultra is probably already formatted for windows unless otherwise specified by the seller. You will have to reformat the drive to exFAT in order for a Mac to read and write files to this drive. Hope this helps.

I have a Windows PC. What is the cloning software and procedure to clone my hard drive to this drive?
Asked by: R
If you had a bare 2.5" drive, you could then use the Apricorn SATA Wire product + their Easy Gig III (or now IV) software to clone the PC drive to the 2.5" drive. However, that SATA wire uses a SATA jack to the external drive. Unfortunately, the Passport drive is not bare, but has the USB connector. How to properly bridge from a SATA jack to the Passport's USB connector is, for me, an unknown. You could of course get a bare 2.5" drive. Then the SATA Wire product (which includes the Easy Gig software) would allow the cloning.
