- Stopped working on the first fall- May 27, 2021
I bought this drive because I have 2 cats who love to knock things over. I figured it would be the safest bet considering it was likely to fall at some point. I have an old Mac that barely functions with a ton of photos on it. I was advised by apple to transfer all of my photos onto the drive and then delete them off of my computer so that it could function. I then wanted to make a second backup so proceeded to transfer the photos to the cloud. About halfway through the transfer my cat knocked the drive about 2.5 feet to the ground and it no longer functions. I have lost half of my photos! I have contacted LaCie and hopefully they can resolve the issue but for now I am very disappointed in this product. Will update this review if they resolve this issue.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

- USB C port broke- April 15, 2021
After using it for a month, the USB C port is super sensitive on the hard drive. I did not do anything to damage it. I have to insert the cable at a certain angle and if the cable is touched at all, it disconnects from the port. Super bad for hard drives to disconnect improperly so often. And it makes this hard drive unusable for travel or in spaces not at a desk (which the whole point of buying this hard drive is to use it in tough places). If LaCie sends me a new one and it doesn't have this issue, then I will consider giving them a better review.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Extremely effective 5TB Back-Up Hard Drive- June 23, 2021
Purchased this a replacement external hard drive for back up. Previously had two WD 5TB Externals, one to hold all media (music / video, etc) instead of keeping on MacBook. Second was used strictly as a back-up (time machine). The drive being used as a back-up stopped working periodically, and I needed a replacement as soon as possible. I purchased this and from day one, this has performed effectively, quickly and due to it's minimal footprint, has been a great addition to my home office.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
