I would recommend Clickfree 500GB C2 External Portable Automatic Backup Drive (USB 3.0). It is easy to use and backsup automatically. I used it to pull information from old computer and update my new computer. Now I have it set up to save my computers information on a regular basis.
I have wanted to purchase an external hard drive and back up my laptop for at least a year. I recently purchased a new desk top computer and knew this was the time to back up the laptop. I bought the Clickfree based on the other reviews and am SO GLAD I did. This was my first and only experience with this type of device and it could not have been any easier. Just plugged it into the laptop and everything automatically downloaded. Then plugged it into the new desk top and easily figured out how to tranfer everything onto the new computer. I can always back up new data easily and effortlessly. I highly recommend this product.
This is my first external hard drive. I am very glad I chose the click free, as it is so extremely easy to use for a beginner. Just as they say plugged it in got the welcome screen up telling me how many seconds to backup started. It download and organized all my data files, including my roboform password cards. It handles pictures beautifully, even giving you thumb views of each picture. I am still browsing and have been blown away with all that you can do with it and so easy. I highley recommend it to anyone. You won't be sorry for buying this one.
Pros:use to back up all my financial and personal data
