Maybe every 4 or 5 months... The hard drive I had was about 6 years old, and has broken a couple times. Not to mention it was huge, had to be plugged in to the mains, and made a really weird sound while it took 5 minutes to actually turn on.. it was just a nightmare, which really put me off using it.
I was sent this lovely little 1TB G Drive to review for Tesco Compare Home Insurance – firstly, wowzers, it’s about the size of my hand (and I have tiny hands) and secondly, you only need to plug it in to your USB socket on your computer and you’re good to go straight away! Quite a change from my big old useless box.
There’s no complicated setting-up, just plug it in and start backing up all your files! I only keep files I need on my MacBook, to try and free up some much needed space! All my old photos & documents now live on my mobile hard drive.
