  • The Transformer USB cable is so easy to use. Simply plug it in to your computer, then connect the other manufacturer's hard drive and it instantly becomes a totally automatic Clickfree backup drive that searches, organizes and backs up all of your PC data and digital files. There are no instructions to read, no software to install and configure, no copying and pasting files, it's really that easy.

    Clickfree's entire lineup of products, from the Transformer Cable to Clickfree portable backup drives and DVDs, are designed for the 85 to 95 percent of computer users who, research shows, fail to regularly backup content on their PCs because they do not have the time, desire or skill to install, set up and use confusing or complex software and hardware products.

  • You shouldn't have to settle for incrementally timed backups on your external hard drive. If you're using a portable solution to safeguard your crucial information, the Clickfree Portable Backup Drive makes it easy to keep a constant backup on hand. There's no setup (unless you count plugging it into your computer); the software built into the drive runs automatically and finds, organizes, and ultimately backs up all data on the host computer. We can't complain about the $180 price tag for our 320GB model, nor are we disappointed with its speedy performance. Despite a few small hiccups, we give Clickfree a high five for successfully smoothing out the wrinkles on a previously painful backup process.

    Design and features
    The Clickfree Portable Backup Drive is available in several capacities ranging from 120GB up to 500GB. Each uses the standard 2.5-inch hard disk spinning at 5,400 rotations per minute with 8MB of cache. We noticed the drive is much lighter than most of the other external drives that make their way into our lab. Our 0.38 pound Clickfree drive weighs a full 0.22 pound lighter than the hefty . The device is also small in stature at 4.52 inches tall, 2.9 inches wide, and 0.67 inche deep.


    ClickFree Automatic Backup Drive: It just doesn't get easier than this.

  • Initial setup requires first hooking the drive up to the PC or Mac that you want to back up, then the drive automatically installs needed programs. The primary back up then happens: it could take only a few minutes or it could take hours (as it did for our iMac with over 280GB of data on it), so it depends on how many files you've hoarded away on your computer. Once you have a baseline backup of your computer(s), you can then just plug in the power adapter and the rest of the magic will happen over your wireless network. The Clickfree Wireless automatically grabs the SSID and WEP/WPA password from your PCs and Macs, so there's nothing to setup. As long as you're running a 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n network (the most common type), subsequent backups will happen overnight (default at 3AM local time). As long as you keep your PC or Mac on (sleep is OK, hibernate isn't), the Clickfree Link program will connect your system to the Clickfree Wireless backup drive over Wi-Fi and backup any files that have changes. As on other Clickfree products, the system backs up data files by default: .jpg, .doc, .xls, etc. It ignores OS files and .exe files, so if your machine fails completely you'll still have to reinstall the OS and applications (but you have those on DVD somewhere, right?). The data files like documents, home movies, music, and photos are the ones you'll really miss if the hard drive in your system fails.
