5* Backup drive for a Linux system...
Reviewed by Roger on 22/04/2015
This seems quite well made although I can't comment on how long it might last as I only received it today. I didn't need a NTFS partition on it as I never use Windows so I re-formatted it with ext3 using GParted and it mounts and unmounts just fine. Now I can use rsync to back up my home folder. The supplied USB3 cable is rather short but that may be for power supply reasons. I expect BT or others sell a longer cable if you need one. I am quite pleased with it for the price.
