Does what is claims and more.

Written By Ross, Houston TX on Monday, November 03, 2008

I backed up 4 computers, one of which had 15 years of accumulated files with no problems and no great amount of interface.
Nowhere in the description does it say it can be used as a portable hard drive, but it works just fine. You can see and choose the various computers you've backed up on the screen, and access the list of files to find what you need.
