|BACK UP YOUR COMPUTER!|
I routinely back up my two systems so I needed it to be easy to manage. It's pretty simple to work the function of running the back up, and it can be set up two ways: auto and manual. For some reason my laptop doesn't like it when the Passport is set to automatically access the drive. So I removed the auto backup software and do it manually, which is just like using a thumb drive. Open it up, and drag and drop the whole drive into it. My home computer manages the auto access well. So I handle things differently, letting the software determine what has changed and needs to be backed up. Either way, I get my work safely saved to a second drive, and I have less to fear about losing my hard work.
