  • Need backup for your hard drive?

    Just what I needed. Simple USB connection. I leave it plugged in at all times, then set up Windows to backup to the Canvio on a schedule. Good price for the peace of mind.

  • It's working great so far.

    Got it for a friend and plugged it into her laptop using Windows 8. The device fired right up and I immediately made a disk image of her hard drive. No problems at all. The only potential problem is that the small USB cable isn't permanently attached to the device, like my other external drives. It could easily be lost.
