Not good
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

It worked for 10 months. It is perfect as long as it works but it will brake eventually and sooner then you expect. It was the second failure Canvio model I bought. No more risk.

No setup file to start installation
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

No instructions with the package and no setup file on the drive. Startup file only includes the warranty in 10 languages. My computer runs on Windows 7. No idea how to get unit to work.

External Hard Drive....JOKE!!!!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Would have been nice if it actually came with instructions. Plug and Play....HA HA HA....NOT SO MUCH. Won't open, have no idea if it's actually working. My computer says it functional, but it shows it directly on my C drive and I'm pretty sure it should have a drive all it's own. Best Buy Geel Squad no help, mgmt no help, AAAAARGH can you say frustrated!

Does not have instructions & not compatible
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I read these reviews after trying to find the quick install instructions online, as it was not included like it said. It appears incompatible with my system as well. I'm no computer expert, so it's beyond me. The 'Plug and Play' apparently doesn't work with my system (XP) - have not tried it on my Windows 7 system yet.

Not with Windows 7 64bit
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

If you are a PC user, take notice, the Toshiba Canvio USB series of drives currently work with 32bit Windows operating systems out of the box. You may need to reformat the drive prior to use if you only use 64 bit system. (MS makes 32bit and 64 bit Vista and Windows 7 programs.) Microsoft's website will indicate the drive is compatible, but sadly it's not. I have two of these drives which worked fine on Windows Vista 32 bit, but when I upgraded to Window 7 64 bit they no longer work? Reformatting the drive would erase all data that is currently stored on it, plus no guarentee if would then be compatible with 32 bit systems? Searching internet blog sites on this subject you will see this is a known problem for some time. Toshiba and Microsoft should develop a driver to address this problem

X86 - DOESNT WORK ON WIN 7
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

After repeated attempts to use this product, I find it WILL NOT WORK and in fact, gave me a BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH! SAYS it works on Vista, XP but nowhere does it say it works on Win 7 but on this advertising page. The "installation instructions" that supposedly come with it, in the warranty, ARE NOT THERE! Warranty in 25 languages.
