We all need to back our data up, there is no doubting that. Clickfree is a new brand that offers a portable Hard drive, that claims to be the easiest and fastest data backup solution out there. One has to just plug it in to USB in, and that’s it. The backup begins. We’ve got the 320GB, HD325 model, so let’s check it out; it’s quite a unique piece.

Operation and Backup process
The product is not the best looking model out there, with a deep electric blue case accented by shiny metallic caps on the ends. There are 2 blue LEDs huddled together facing upwards, for signaling power and backup operations.

It comes with dual USB cable for powering via 2 USB slots. The device is lightweight and possesses a very neat finish. As for the anatomy: it has a standard 2.5-inch hard disk, with 5,400 RPM and 8MB cache.

This HDD needs only to be connected to the PC in question, and within about 60 seconds a blue UI opens up with a 20 second countdown, stating that the entire contents of the PC will be backed up. We allowed the Clickfree to strut its stuff, and timed a complete backup of 211 GB HDD filled with songs videos, MS office archives etc.— basically a typically populated office PC. The HDD performed this in 23 minutes flat, which is impressive. But besides this main USP of setup and hassle free backing up, the UI is another feather in the Clickfree’s cap.
