    Good, simple, backup storage drive, January 18, 2010

    If you’re looking for a simple way to automatically back up your data this drive will do quite well. However, as several other reviews have pointed out, don’t be misled into thinking this will function as an ordinary external hard drive.

    HP has basically installed their own backup utility software into the drive. The first time you plug it in, it will run the software, scan your computer for files and back them up. It will automatically recognize music, video, office or word documents, etc) If this is what you’re looking for, it functions quite well and is very easy to use, particularly if you are not the most computer savvy person out there.

    However, if you’re a most advanced user looking to dictate what gets backed up where and how all the space on the drive is utilized, it may not be the best option.

    Nice backup software – unless you don’t want to use it., September 24, 2009

    The software, Windows only, works pretty simply. If you are after a decent, small, slick backup drive with specific software this may do you well.

    However, if you want to use the Simplesave as a plain external hard disk you’re in for a rude surprise. The backup software is installed on a “Virtual CD-ROM” partition that is installed on the drive in some very low level manner so that you can’t get rid of the 500M of wasted “virtual CD-ROM” partition. Why didn’t HP just put the software in the root drive of the data partition? Unfortunately, it’s another typical “cram the software down your throat” HP product.

    Great backup drive, January 30, 2010

    I am using this drive with a new HP PC with Windows 7. I am thoroughly delighted with the SimpleSave drive. Everything about it, from price to ease of use to reliability to its speed, is superb. It has performed flawlessly for me and hasn’t missed backing up any of my new or modified files. I am using this drive for what it was intended: as a BACKUP drive for music, photos, emails, Office documents, etc. In that regard I recommend this drive without reservation. Plug it in, let it do its work, and you’re done. Perfect. Also, browsing the backed up files on the drive is a snap, as is doing restores. It couldn’t be easier. If you’re looking for a real BACKUP drive for your important files, (not one to necessarily create a mirror image of your entire PC hard drive), get this one.
