About this book
Now that digital cameras and music players have become so incredibly widespread, a forest of sound and imagery is blossoming in our homes. We’ve got digital pictures in the camera, scans on the computer, JPEGS attached to e-mails, and tunes on tiny players. But there’s also the old-fashioned stuff: photos in shoeboxes, videos in the attic, documents in desk drawers, songs on tape and vinyl. How do you transform all of these different elements into a convenient archive you can store in your computer, easily reach, and actually enjoy? This book delivers basic step-by-step instruction on streamlining and organizing your "digital life" so you can find what you need instantly and create presentations your friends and family will love. In addition, you’ll be amazed at the decrease in household clutter and paper waste. For everyone --from teenagers who thrive on the technical to families with overflowing photo albums and seniors who’d love to collate decades’ worth of letters and pictures --this reader-friendly source has all the answers. These easy-to-follow solutions can truly enhance and simplify the hectic, over-saturated lives so many of us find ourselves leading today.

    Excellent Hard Drive - Great Price. Pull drives for use in Laptop/PS4.

    Hard to go wrong here. If you are using this as an external drive, this product has 2TB in very small space and is USB powered. The drive itself only takes 0.7-2.3W to operate! On Mac OSX 10.9.2 running the included Paragon NTFS driver, I was able to see write rates in 8-10 MB/sec with USB 2.0. On a Windows 7 Machine I averaged 18 MB/Sec; 14 MB/sec running the latest 8.1 update.I pulled the drives from two of these units (instructions below - photos to be added soon) for use in my laptop. This product is the only way I know of to obtain the 9.5mm tall, 2.5-in 2T Samsung Spinpoint M9T drive(s). Note: the 2TB version has 1 drive, the 4TB has 2 drives. After installing them in my laptop (has 3 internal HDD bays with SATA connections, 1st bay has OS, apps, etc. on 500GB SSD), I tested data txfr speeds. I moved 1.5 TB of data from one drive to another with average speeds of 194 MB/Sec in Windows 8.1.

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive with Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 (Blue) STDR2000102 (Personal Computers) I made my first backup in this disk. After 1,150 folders were transferred, I tried to open that new folder in another computer. Surprise! “The folder is corrupted or inaccessible”. I tried from several computers and the error was the same. I can’t delete that folder because now I get a 0x80070091 error “An un expected error is keeping you from deleting this folder. The directory is not empty”… Now I have almost 1 terabyte of inaccessible and undeletable data in this brand new Seagate Backup Plus disk!!!, March 5, 2016

    Works fine with one cable

    I bought this usb drive to use with my digital photos. I work on a laptop and, because I take raw digital images, I wanted someplace to store my photos off of my machine. The logical solution was, of course, an external usb drive but, since my cat loves to jump on my lap or on the sofa when I am working, I worried about the possible damage to the drive from sudden movements. This was my solution to that problem. After reading some of the reviews I assumed that I would need two cables, one for data and one for power, and that there would be two usb connections on the drive. So, first off, let me be clear about what is and what is not needed to use this drive.This drive itself has only a single usb 3.0 connection. The cable that comes with the drive is a Y cable with two connectors for the usb connections on the computer, but only one connection on the drive itself. As I said, the Y cable has two computer connections, but the wires are not the same. The thicker one is for... 5/5 Mike From Mesa (Mesa, AZ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great portable backup drive

    I purchased this drive to replace an aging 320GB Western Digital portable hard drive, as it was too small, slow, and becoming unreliable. This Transcend drive was a great value on the deal of the day price, and it performs well in my use so far. The USB 3.0 speeds are great for large file transfers, easily topping 100 MB/s. I posted a CrystalDiskMark benchmark of this drive in the pictures section to give an idea of transfer speeds. As expected, the sequential reads/writes are great, but you won't notice much difference when copying lots of smaller files compared to a USB 2.0 drive. Most of my use so far is creating disk image backups of my computers, as well as normal file backup and transfer operations.There are a couple of quirks with this hard drive. First, the drop protection does result in a noticeably larger and heavier device than a typical 2.5" hard drive. Also, the included cable has an extra USB connector in case your computer cannot supply necessary power... 5/5 OSU_Engineer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
