  • Manual or Automatic Backup? Not all units come equipped to automatically back up your data. Make sure to read the information and determine if it will fit your needs.
  • Capacity: 250 gig, 500 gig, 1 Terabyte? If you are storing pictures, videos, music- purchase a unit with a lot of capacity for storage.
