I use it for storage of massive photo files. Allows me to keep all my original file as well as my altered files. Out of box and into function on my Mac in a matter of seconds. No surprises, it just works.

Questions about this item:

ronjon28 r  Is this a good back up drive for photos and can it be used with a second drive?
TANYA S  I use this drive for photo back up all the time. I actually have 3 drives. The 2nd drive is duplicate backup and the third for time machine. I hope this helps!
ronjon28 r  Thanks Tanya. Before you replied I got a G-RAID 4T drive but I'm wondering if I made a mistake. I learned that RAID drives are prone to crash and I dont have a secondary drive. Do you think I would be better off with dual WD drives instead?
