Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect way to save files, pics and more! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] LaCie 4TB Rugged Mini USB 3.0 External Hard Drive with Rescue Data Recovery Services is perfect for saving all those files, pictures, videos and more that take up space on your computer! This orange rugged little device is drop, shock and water resistant with its thick rubber case. It has a 4TB of space that will hold so much data and is password protected and it is small enough to carry with you especially when on the go. It comes with micro USB 3.1 Gen 1 to USB TypeC cable so it can even plug into your smartphone to save data as well. It also has Rescue Data Recovery Services to backup your computer that is easy to use and also comes with a month subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud All Apps plan to try out. This device is formatted for both Windows PC and Mac versions. This small device is little but mighty when it comes to speed also, it is fast transferring date and pics. I highly recommend the LaCie 4TB Rugged Mini USB 3.0 External Hard Drive for traveling and for keeping all your data and pictures save while saving space on your computer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and good transfer rates [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this hard-drive a few weeks ago, because I need a reliable hard-drive to save my pictures and videos during travel. So far, I am really happy with HDD. It has good transfer rates and it doesn't take forever to copy all my things. I also like that it is made for a bit rougher environments and won't break a hit. I will keep you posted if this might change in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Much Space!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this LaCie 4TB All-Terrain Mobile Hard Drive to keep all of my photos on, as well as to back up my computer. And let me tell you it is MORE than enough!! I can take so many more photos now, and videos too. without having to worry about running out of space! The silicone case that comes on the hard drive is thick and seems very sturdy too! I don't think you'll be disappointed if you get one of these for your storage solutions!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for travel! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] In the world of the cloud I still find it useful to back up locally and this is always my preferred brand. I have had a few LaCie branded hard drives over the year and they have never failed me. They give that extra piece of mind when traveling that they will stand up to a dropped bag etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic right out the box! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The program was super simple to install and the 3.6TB of actual usable space is more than enough for backups of my systems. The software walks you through each step and then the backup was really quick. Took about 30 minutes for my whole system.
