Portable Storage: Convenience is the Key

Software: Safety Drill

The SafetyDrill software package is a complete backup solution that creates full worst-case recovery backups. It sports a backup reminder, and can allocate a minimum amount of disk space on the OneTouch 4 Plus drive.

  • After 6 hours of "copying" the contents of my C drive using the Safety feature - which indicated that it had copied 260+MB successfully, nothing was written to the drive. This is worse than useless because if I had not checked to see how much space was still available I would not have realized I had no backup to recover from. Seagate Technical support confirmed my observations. Drive was fine, software was useless.
