Very good value for money
on 25 January 2014
I purchased this to cerate a windows 8.1 backup system image and it worked without an issue. Please be aware that with windows 8.1 unless you reset the disk partitions you will get errors stating you do not have enough disk space on the device you are backing up to, this is due to certain drives now not having drive letters and a couple of other things.
However I have a HP Split and this comes with a one time backup option but in many cases an HP being one of these you cannot use a flash drive larger than 32GB as the backup software does not recognise anything bigger. I initially purchased a 64GB with hop I could create a flash drive and then also add file history to it.
For those who have had problems this little device works great with windows 8.1 but I MUST WARN I did use the HP backup software and not the windows 8.1 built in backup.
The device is simply plug and go and has no problems with communicating with the O/S, a typical ne install of windows 8.1 with MS SQL Express and visual studio ( web and desktop) installed the total image size was 14GB.
I will be buying another one now as the device is so small it can easily be plugged into my HP split in tablet mode and not be an issue from a size perspective giving me extra on the go storage for project files and such like.
