    I’ve had one for a few years. Backing up 1TB of photos over USB 3.0 took a while, but it was hours rather than days. Agree with comments above that if it’s a USB 2.0 drive it will take forever, have a vague memory that I replaced mine for this very reason.

    Overall I’ve been very pleased with mine, use it for storage and as a media server. If you’ve got a decent internet connection cloud backup is worth exploring, My whole NAS (About 1.5TB) is backed up on the cloud and it only costs £2/month. Don’t go with Amazon Glacier though as I tried that at first and it was terrible.

    Received a call from him today saying that his insurance may have expired. Offered to pay for the damage directly. The initial call to the insurance company said the vehicle was insured on a works policy. Kept mentioning how I’d ‘pulled out to get around a bus ‘…double checked the dashcam footage for my own sanity. What a fukcng knt.

    Basically said if I go via insurance I’ll get nothing. Which isn’t what insurance say. Hey ho. Probably end up getting screwed . Real kick in the balls when being legal and playing by the rules ends up costing you, and the scumbags run amok.

    You get the leaders you deserve. This appointment has already caused a lot of damage to Sheffield’s reputation among the over 25s. The under 25s and those who never grew up probably think it’s all a big joke. The inmates are running the asylum in Sheffield.

    I’ve always had that same feeling about whiplash. Shocked by how much that shunt actually did move the car…stationary start, not much distance between us. I’ve got an inkling that he might have been texting…clocked the Green light and assumed everyone was moving. ..and put his foot down . Really did snap my head back and it does hurt for a moment. I’ll keep an eye on it.

    Just think they’re really handy to have a full stop. Was behind a crash last week where a woman pulled out from a stationary queue into fast-moving traffic. Van hit her and pushed her into the car in front. Checked everyone was OK then mentioned I had the dash can be fitted and I’d get then the footage. She was convinced she was in the right and even expressed her relief that I had caught it on camera. The camera caught the whole thing perfectly and didn’t really show her in a good light …
