Great for multiple clone backups
18 July 2014
Summary: I prefer periodically cloning my whole computer rather than only doing normal backups. You can copy any or all files or when you get the deadly blue screen you can restore the entire OS. I have several of these drives to rotate my backups. Backup or be sorry!
These are the ones you want, not the Western Digitals

Summary: These are the ones you want, not the Western Digitals. I own an IT company and we buy these for customers to have them do backups of their local workstations and to take with them. We purchased the Western Digitals too, but they come with fancy capabilities that had to be disabled by downloading some software to do it before they would be compatible with the backup software. When I buy a drive, all I want is a drive, not some special ROMs inside that need to be disabled.
Summary: Wanted something to save picuters and music on from my computer, and it does just that. Shortly after buying it, my PC crashed. If it weren't for the moving them to this, they would have all been lost. It will be a long time until this is full.
The goflex is not as large as some but works with Windows 7 backup

Summary: I purchased a 3TB Seagate external drive at a big box store just to discover that Windows 7 backup will not work with it because the sectors are too small. I purches the goflex instead as per my employer who uses it all the time. It worked well with Windows 7 backup so I like it a lot.
