    • Needed back up system

      I needed this to back up my computer. I attempted to back-up with CDs, which I had done in he past, but it was taking was too many and getting really cumbersome. Plus I was unable to access information on old back-ups to CD. I had to do a complete re format of my computer a few months ago, not pleasant. Didn't want to spend $$$$ for TBs of data I would not need. I considered an **** purchase, but opted for Overstock to get a new product. I back up monthly, this suits my needs.
