Having been wondering how to back-up all my laptop data & mp3 files easily, I finally plunged for the 400Gb Freecom Hard Drive. I've only had it a few days, but I'm already highly impressed.
Firstly, it was simple to set up: the software installed quickly and easily, and the HD was recognised and worked perfectly the first time it was connected to the laptop.
There are two handy bits of software: one, which appears as "Freecom Sync" on the HD, automatically checks that your PC and the Freecom HD have the same files in selected folders (and updates as necessary); the back-up utility automatically checks your PC for specified types of files (e.g. .doc files) and backs them up to the Freecom HD. And very quickly, at that.
Not only that, but it was also a piece of cake to back-up all my 20Gb Zen Touch tracks to the Freecom HD.
I worked out that, even at a high bitrate (192kbps), I can get 4000 albums on this HD; that works out at 0.00 pence per album.
