We've had this back up drive less than six months and it keeps overheating and now our laptops won't recognize it anymore and we can't get our files. I'm calling the company today to find out how we can transfer over our files and get a new one. We do weddings for a living and this is setting us back in completing our work. So be careful if yours seems to be getting too hot or overheating, please stop using it and back your files up somewhere else. Hopefully this is just a fluke and all will be okay. Barb F., Delta OH
