Iomega Prestige Portable Drive

efairchild, Amazon
3 June 2011
  • Summary: The drive is easy to set up - just plug in the USB. The problem I found was with the QuikProtect software provided with the drive by download from Iomega. Put simply, it has been unable to find a "path" and won't do the job as intended.
