Great Device I've had my Seagate Slim Drive for a couple years now and I don't have a single problem with it. I just finished uploading 206 pictures to it from my phone over wifi in about 30 minutes. It also takes pictures from Facebook when you want it to. Videos take a little bit longer but that's to be expected.
Poor poor poor This company lacks the ability to create anything intiitive, especially backing up a mpbile device. I can see the backup and eant to restore it to my device, however I must read hours worth of user manuals to find where it is hodden. Why does it ask to backup to a removable drive, why not to my bloody laptop, or better yet, how about the personal cloud, there isn't that option,at least not inmediately available. You all need to get with the router manufacturers and set a standard for file transfers
It took forever to back up I have to admit that I rushed in buying this device because it is far from user friendly. If you were someone who knows your way around data back up an retrieval, I think you will find useful. Step one hacking up my phone, checked. Step 2 retrieve or view data... God help me.
Will Not Comple Even a Simple Backup Plan This application seems straightforward and looks like it will do what I want it to do. The problem is, it never finishes. Not even half way. I have attempted different backup plans with less and less data to be backed up but it still cant finish. On top of the many "Force Close"s, it is terrible. Actually, all in all, this app is useless without any data being backed up.
Restoring mobile backup trouble Okay backed up fine on my old phone. and now that my old phone crashed and I'm not able to get my contacts out of it I'm trying to restore the backup to my new phone. Guess what after each attempt failed failed failed. Can't restore. Is there a way that I can restore that file on my desktop or someplace else? Right now I'm stuck without all my contact information. The backup program isn't too helpful if I can't restore the backups when I need them. I have checked the support page everything is working fine
Been great, easy to use, only occasional niggles So yeah, does what it says on the tin. Does it well. Lets you know if things went wrong. Works over wireless in the background! Super easy to use. Does fail the odd back-up but nearly always gets it second try. Handy reminders if you want them. Had a set of errors once but were resolvable with Google searches in under an hour. Simple, yes, but an absolutely effective and worth-it addendum to your back-up process.
