Photography is my hobby. I can accumulate almost a TB of photos in a year. This became a necessity for storage. The setup was easy. The only snag was the software would not download properly because I had some old WD software on the computer. Tech support was very helpful and patient but it did need to be escalated to the advanced tech support team before it was resolved. It runs smoothly and the software automatically backs up my PC. Plenty of room for me to grow into. I took a star off because the new software didn't play well with the old software.
