  • Summary: Didn't do what I was hoping it would do. Not to blame this product it was the external hard drive that is the problem.

Great drive, bad connection

go_rocks, Amazon
1 July 2012
  • Summary: I've used this hard drive for 6 months now, to transfer files to-and-from my laptop at home and my desktop at work on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the cable on this hard-drive tends to come loose and uplug itself, so you risk loss of data if you're not exceedingly cautious not to bump desk, drive,...

Good, but doesn't work with Windows 7 backup

J. Alexander, Amazon
13 February 2012
  • Summary: I have 2 methods of backing up my hard drive. My synchronization software works. Windows 7 backup doesn't. They should tell people about this before they waste a bunch of time. I suspect that it can't handle files over 4 GB. NTFS is supposed to handle that, so it might be the encryption software.

Disappointed

T. Farkas, Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: Main reason for buying this (and paying a premium price), was the hope that I would be using Never Down software. I was unable to make that work (Windows 7) after hours of trying. Apparently Never Down is no longer supported and Iomega does not make an attempt to make it work with Windows 7.

Drive fine; software poor

Robert H, Amazon
30 September 2011
  • Summary: The drive works fine. I'm dinging it with 3 stars due to the frustration with Iomega's software. Drive comes with a flier describing Iomega's "NeverDown" software, which lets you create a bootable clone of your hard disk. Great!

Mixed bag

manatee, Amazon
6 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this drive because of its high-speed eSATA connection, high capacity (2 TB) and extensive software package. I knew going in that Iomega didn't provide the backup software on disk. It had to be downloaded but this was no problem for me ... or so I thought.

never down software

ken, Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: The iomega drive was advertised as having a software package "Never Down" which was supposed to back up your system drive to a bootable patrition on the iomega drive which would allow you to boot up from the iomega drive if something happened to your boot drive.
