Software interface need work

POSTED BY: Thermotech , Boston, MA
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

The drive is found by PC software is installed, set up is done and then it shows updates available. It downloads the updates and they do not install. ERROR!! Toshiba must work on this update. LED lights do not show any activity other than when reset. Drive is recognized and has great software interface for pictures and songs. When it comes to downloading files to ipad you have no control of where the files go no interface with open with, and no files can be open. Downloading files into a PC is more flexible and you can fix the download folder. Drive is a lot slower than Dropbox, more complicated and interface is Spartan. Very schetchy. I hope Toshiba will offer better software in the future. Drive came with software missing and software on the site is difficult to find.

Received more updates non will install. It tries to install a new updater and that fails. I would no longer recommend this. When An updater works , I may change my mind

I am a professional graphic designer and thought this would be a perfect solution for working with clients. I started uploading just one of my portfolio folders. 300 Gigs. 24 hours later it has 70 gigs copied over. This hard drive is extremely slow. The updater does not work. It takes and hour to get the software and run the firmware update, but never actually updates the firmware. It just sits there saying it is doing the update and it should take 15 minutes. I let it run for 8 hours without any success.
