Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Toshiba backup for my Macbook This little item looks the part, works straight out of the box, is recognised immediately by MacBook Pro and save a load of money by not buying the same type of backup from Apple. Good or news all round. 27 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy installation. Seems to work well, just plugged it in and it worked. No problems which is just as well as I am a Mac novice. If it had come with better instructions I would have given it 5 stars but in common with my other portable hard drive from a different manufacturer everything is on a PDFs on the device. I still like instruction books you can hold and I am unsure what you would do to get instructions easily if it had failed to set up easily. 22 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job Easy to use, saved my data really fast. And lots of space 18 February 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Canvio Slim drive for Mac If you have the latest Mac operating system - which is el Capitan (released Sept 15) the Canvio is not compatible and is not suitable. I bought this because it said on the packaging it was specifically for Mac - which it is but not for the latest operating system. Therefore if you are still running Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion etc it will work. Toshiba haven't yet caught up with apple's latest (el Capitan) so beware and check before you buy. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic asset to my iMac I am extremely pleased with this portable hard drive. I purchased it to use as an external backup for my iMac since my previous backup drive stopped working. This one is much smaller and as soon as I attached it to the Mac it commenced working without needing to make any adjustments. It automatically backs up every 20 mins. Very easy to use. Extremely pleased with it. It takes less room and sits neatly just beneath screen. Highly recommend it. 07 January 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not compatible After waiting three weeks for this item on back order I was very disappointed to find that this device was totally incompatible with my iMac 4K. This problem needs to be addressed by JL.It should not be left to the purchaser to find out. Have ordered a WD My Passport for Mac to try again. 12 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pocket Dynamo It is not much bigger than a credit card, yet it manages to pack in 1tb of space. It is already formatted for mac os x, so all you need to do is plug and play. So far no problems, the only slight niggle is that it does not have an off or on switch, but nevertheless has a beautiful brushed steel finish. After a few weeks use I can only recommend it. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smart, slim and does the job. Bought to replace a broken one. Plugged it in, easy to set the computer and it now does all my backup without a problem. Is very quiet and doesn't even get warm. Looks stylish and slim. Perfect. 02 June 2015
