Auto Backing-Up HDD?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I dont know much about external hard drives but my gf asked me to look for one for her. Anyways, I come to you guys with a question. Is there an external HDD that backs up data automatically? If there is, could you recommend me one for around 60-80 dollars? If there isnt, what would be a good substitute?

I dont know much about external at all...

She will be using it with her laptop. I dont think it has USB3.0 but it would be a plus because she may upgrade soon.

Thnx

This time size doesnt matter

Haha... I guess smaller the better, its just more convinient. Price has priority though.

I think upwards of 350 gb. She doesnt have that much stuff, but it will pile up over time.

I use several of

, and love them. They are a little on the high end of your budget. They are small and portable. They also have backup software which is what you wanted. It will also support USB 2.0 and 3.0.

That actually looks like exactly what shes looking for... plus I can price match it down to around 70 dollars with a local computer shop. Thanks a bunch for the help
