1. External HDD Capacity: One Gigabyte (GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes and One Terabyte (TB) means 1012 = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes using powers of 10. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB=230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 240 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes, and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity will also be less if the computer includes one or more pre-installed operating systems, pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

2. To minimize the risk of data loss, always make back-up copies of data on a separate storage device. The applicable standard limited warranty limits Toshiba’s liability for damages of any kind, including damage to, or loss or corruption of, stored programs or data.

3. Warranty: The terms and conditions of Toshiba’s standard limited warranty are available on our website.

4. The hard drive is formatted NTFS. Mac compatibility will require reformatting the drive to an OS X compatible format.

    Love it!, June 5, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I take A LOT of pictures. I had concerns that with my computer being a few years old already that some day I would try to turn it on and it wouldn’t start. So, I bought this to use as a back up. I’ve had this for about a week and already filled up over 100GB (that’s with every picture, file and document that is on my computer). I still have a little over 800GB left! After having it plunged into your computer and it not being in use for a certain amount of time, it will shut off. Which I love because if it’s not being used, I would rather it be off. With me taking as many pictures as I do, this may have been the best money I have spent..other than my camera of course! :) It comes with the cord to connect it to your computer as well.

    Fast delivery. Great product. Let’s see if these external discs last more than a month… A plus: doesn’t need any software, doesn’t need any power line, just plug it. Fast, easy to use. No problem so far. Not like one of my WD Books that my computer can recognize only after hundreds of attempts. And Amazon charges the lowest price as far as I know!
