Security for a great price!
After looking around and comparing drives, (I am on a budget!)I finally decided on the Iomega for its price and storage capacity. I was able to connect to my desktop PC in under 5 minutes, just hooked up the power and then plugged it into my USB port and it was recognized by the PC. Once the included back-up software was installed, I had backed-up both my system (for recovery) and my data in about an hour. The software allows for compression, encryption, and password protection. I left my data uncompressed which allows me to see and access it as a normal drive. The drive itself is well built and smaller than I expected in size. It sits flat on top of my tower. A blue power/drive light lets you know it is on. The drive will power on (if off) when the PC is turned on but will not power off unless you hit the power button in the back. The software for back-up is easy to use and has both a 'wizard' and 'advanced' mode. I used the wizard mode and was up and backing-up in no time. Also included with the drive is a photo album package and jukebox software. I installed neither of these programs. I have to say my experience with this drive has been a pleasurable one. I have had it a week now and can think of no faults to write about!
