It will not work on my laptop

by Josef Bartruff on 2/26/2013

The ADATA drive was perfect for backing up my laptop, unfortunately it would not work and I had to purchase a 3.0 USB drive in order to back up my Hard drive. I bought the ADATA drive because of its durable outer shell and storage capacity and I would have liked if they had the same design in a 3.0 environment for USB connectivity.
