Small Portable LARGE capacity 06/07/2012
This review is from: WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive WDBY8L0020BBK-NESN Black
Plugged it into my USB 3.0 and it went to work right away.
No problems, no hassles...WD just works!!! Win 7 x 64 recognized it and setup for it in seconds, too.
I backed up my (2) 1TB harddrives to it through Win 7 Backup and then I also used the WD Backup feature to do an additional backup. Yes, the drive does both, either or or both.
As the capacity is so great I also copied both my entire drives to it, all my pictures, music, documents, files, games, you name it, etc. (not in Backup mode).
So if a drive ever crashes on me all I have to do is plug this drive in and copy directly back to a new, replacement drive.
I then ran WD Security to lock the drive after I backed up.
This is a very nice unit, small, good looking and of high quality. It looks great on my desktop or I can just unplug it and keep it in a drawer until I want to use it.
Noy a con, just some info for you.
If you decide to use WD Security and lock the drive with a password be aware of this...
As you set it up and start to type your password you WILL get a ERROR Message stating "The Password Does Not Match" in red letters.
Ignore the message and just type in your password.
Retype it on line 2 and you're good to go.
That's it. All done.
Go to work.
Portable so I can put it in my pocket and take it on the road with me. It plugs into any machines USB, all my files on the road. That's sweet. Great for business trips.
