The HP SimpleSave Desktop Hard Drive is an external hard drive built to back up data on Windows PCs. It becomes active as soon as it is connected to a live USB 2.0 port without any software installation, and can be set to automatically save all files of a certain type or from a certain location. It can also be set to check for file changes and back them up every time the computer goes idle. Backup configuration allows for multiple computers to be supported. Cooling is handled through the construction of the case itself, and no fan is used. This creates a quiet long-term operation.
