Thank you Jim, I very much appreciate your response. Reliability is a huge factor and it is good to hear that the Seagate units you purchased were such a good buy for you and your family. It appears that the top brands do include software (various degrees of capability) unless they are sold as 'bare units'. I am currently looking at the recommendations here at Gizmo (the pros and cons and user feedback is so helpful).
