Works fine. You'll have some work to do to get your email and such over to it and live with the sluggish performance.
But let me share that I don't use it as a primary drive but installed SYNCBACK (google.com) to backup items on a schedule.
I am in the process of buying all the necessary hardware to create a wireless network in my home. The last piece of equipment I would like to buy is a wireless storage device that can function as a stand-alone device without being hardwired (e.g. connected through an Ethernet or USB cable) to an active PC or router. The device also needs to support different users, so that other users on the network do not have access to my private files.
I need this for two reasons:
1. Primarily to store my email and browser settings/data (as well as my other important files) so that I can access them from Thunderbird and Firefox on either the desktop PC in my home office or the laptop in my bedroom.
2. For security reasons, i.e. in the event that my desktop PC/laptop is stolen I would still have my vital data stored independently (assuming that I place the wireless storage device somewhere secure and discrete within my house).
It would be much appreciated if someone knowledgeable on these matters could suggest a wireless storage device that would satisfy my requirements.
Thank you very much in advance,
