I have two of these units, and have taken them on several trips in the past 2 years. They have never failed me. I use them to store travel images, and to back up the primary unit. When I get home I frequently copy only the shots I like the most initially and store the rest as original files on this hard drive to limit the load on my desktop hard drives. The capacity is so large that I can keep several trips worth of images for a considerable time. Occasionally I go back and retrieve another shot or two when I need them for a different purpose. Great units.The only thing I sometimes wish it had is an off switch, but I can live without it.
To back up photos and to transfer files between computers
Great little drive
