I don't know if it is just the Toshiba website but this item needs customer support. I had a hard time finding the driver and on a mac when plugged in you can read but not write to the drive. It requires an NTFS driver. None of this is apparent or easy to access. Also the cable is poorly designed and becomes loose and the drives loses connectivity. This happened once and I spent a couple hours recovering the drive. All together for the price I am very happy with this device.

When you plug the drive to your Mac and open it, you will find folders that prompt you to install software. Installing this software made my drive incompatible with Time Machine. I suggest you skip opening any folders and not install any software. I un-installed the software. Just plug the drive, open Time Machine preferences, chose the new drive, then back-up. The folders were a diversion for me. Have fun stormin the castle
