Forget about annoying drag-and-drop data backups and scheduled timers--the Clickfree Portable Backup Drive makes it so easy that it might convince you to start dual-saving your files. All the software you need is actually preloaded onto the drive and starts up automatically when you plug it in. From there, you can select exactly what kinds of files you want the Clickfree to find, organize, and back up, or you can simply make a carbon copy of your desktop master drive.

The drive is available in several capacities up to 500GB and works with both Mac and Windows. We have to ding it for a lack of FireWire as we do with all externals, but overall we don't have much to complain about.

The features are a great deal for the price per gigabyte, the data transfers are just about right for a drive this size, and to top it all off, the Clickfrees come in a variety of colors depending on capacity. If you're tired of manually backing up your sensitive data, we recommend investing in a Clickfree for a truly pain-free experience.

Read all about it in our review of the 320GB Clickfree Portable Backup Drive.
