Summary: The C2N is one of Clickfree's older products but I don't think they have changed how it basically works. You plug it into the usb of your computer, and yes, it does automatically backup everything. But try to go into your files and find something...forget it! When I emailed to complain that my photo files were copied helter-skelter with no logical sequence and so way to search them, Their customer support, which is pretty responsive, said: "Clickfree backs up and stores...
Summary: Product comes with very little instructions as to how to retrieve information and how to use the product. I am actually curious as if this product will actually retrieve lost information from a spoiled hard drive. Yet to be seen.
OK product. not as easy to set up as instructions say. needed software support.

Summary: I had a non-network version and it worked as advertised on 3 different MAC computers. simple, easy to set up and only needed to read the instructions once. virtually automatic.; 5 stars I bought the C2N version for 1 TB capacity and so I wouldn't have to go from computer to computer. I had problems: 1. I had to call support. Off-hours, telephone support spoke with me within one minute, 3 times out of 5. Working hours, I was on-hold for 16 min. and then gave up. 2.
Summary: I purchased this product to back up my desktop and laptop computers and, for the most part, it does the job. I'm a little disappointed in that the product was supposed to be completely automated. The base unit, which is plugged in to my desktop, automatically backs up without a hitch. My wireless laptop, on the other hand, is hit or miss (more misses than hits) with the auto backup feature. I usually have to initiate the backup via the Clickfree software on the laptop.
Summary: I bought this unit at a local office warehouse store on sale for < $100. Could not install the unit (by attaching via USB cable) on 2 computers (an older 4+ yr computer running Windows XP and a 1yr computer running Vista). I returned the unit but instead of a refund, the manager convinced me to try another unit. The new unit atill doesn't "autorun" on older computer but works perfectly on the 1yr computer.
Summary: I'm only partially pleased with this product. On first attempt to back up my data, I selected everything I wanted backed up, which is a lot, since I'm a software developer. It ran for hours and hours. I let it run overnight, thinking it would be done by morning. Instead, I woke up to find that it had errored out about half way through. So, it had to be restarted. It took 2 hours just for it to figure out what it had already backed up and what still needed to be done.
Summary: This product as shipped through Amazon does not contain a wirelss card according to the manufacturer's service rep. It backs up a computer via a physical usb connection. Calling it a wireless unit seems misleading. According to the manufacturer a unit with wireless backup capability is only availabe in Connecticut directly from the manufacturer's web site.
