      Stops working after a few back ups

      Bought this as was a USB-C connection for fast time machine back ups After a few back ups disk drive seems to cease to function, and decides to delete all file Bought this as was a USB-C connection for fast time machine back ups After a few back ups disk drive seems to cease to function, and decides to delete all files through my MacBook Pro and crash the MacBook - back to using my old USB seagate drive via an adapter and that works fine like it always did on my previous MacBook Pro. Poor drive and definitely not worth purchasing

      Great for MacBook backup through time machine

      This hard drive is great for backing up and transferring date from one mac to another. I used it with my mid-2014 MacBook Pro to transfer everything to my new This hard drive is great for backing up and transferring date from one mac to another. I used it with my mid-2014 MacBook Pro to transfer everything to my new 2018 MacBook Pro and it went super smoothly. The data did take a while to upload but that is expected since it was over 214 gb(It took around two hours total to back up my new mac onto the drive and transfer it to my new mac.) It comes with a USB connection as well as the updated MacBook Pro connection. I recommend this for anyone because it has a great price, it comes with a ton of storage, and it works perfectly with Time Machine to transfer all information.

      The short answer is yes this drive would make a good backup drive. However remember no drive is perf The short answer is yes this drive would make a good backup drive. However remember no drive is perfect. Also it can be difficult to tell when your backup drive is damaged until it is too late. Given your concern of not losing your photos, exporting them may not be the best solution. Apple's iCloud is a far, far safer place to store your photos than any home based hard drive. Apple has professional procedures and technologies in place to protect data that a user can not easily match at home. If the safety of your photos is paramount, then I recommend leaving them in iCloud. A better solution for reducing the space used by photos on your iPhone would be to use the 'Optimize iPhone Storage' feature introduced with iOS 11. This feature places small thumbnails for all photos on your phone, but only downloads full sized copies for the images you are using. This will save space on you iPhone, however all photos remain safe, accessible in Apples cloud, and manageable from any linked copy of Photos. To implement this feature, on your iPhone, go to 'Setting>Photos' and put a check next to 'Optimize iPhone Storage'. If you wish to remove all photos from your phone. You can turn off 'iCloud Photo Library' on your Mac and iPhone. This will stop them from sharing photos.You can then delete them from your iPhone without impacting iPhotos on your Mac. Then use good backup procedures to protect them. Remember that after this any photos you take with your phone will need to be manually transferred to your Mac Hope this helps
