That's a great price for that! I wonder what brand of hard drive they use in the enclosure?

I'm interested in the software, are you familiar with it?

Bought it today online, picked it up same day and hooked it up. Everything went smoothly and the setup could not be any easier. Was not as loud as reviews said it was. I can barely hear anything. Was much smaller then I thought it would be too. Everything you can print from online: Rebate forms, your confirmation reciept. Thanks again!

What do you think of the software?

How large is your hard drive that you're backing up?

How long does it take to back up?

I didn't use the software because I only stored pictures, music, and DVD's. Just dragged them into the harddrive icon. I backed up about 30 GB worth and it took me about 8-10 min. At first the computer said it would take about an hour but the files were transfered much quicker. What is weird is that when I click on the icon to see how much space I have left my comp says the hard drives total space is really 232 GB. Am I missing something or do al drives have that type of desceprency?

i've got the box right in front of me. The software is storagesync, which is owned by simpletech. there is no exact review that I could find about it, but in general it's good a quite good feedback.
