December 2019

It's doing what I hoped it would do and I am, therefore, very satisfied with my purchase. Set-up was quite easy for me, but may not be for someone who doesn't know about partition managers. For them a brief guide to "what to do after you've connected your drive" might be a welcome addition to the product package.
