    These devices have caused me more grief than anything else I have ever owned. My advice to everyone would be NOT TO GO ANYWHERE NEAR THEM IF YOU VALUE YOUR SANITY. My Cloud simply does not work; pity the man in the shop did not tell me this before buying it.
    My Passport Ultra works sometimes then asks me to upgrade to Pro even though the previous time it said I had it. So everything I have now backed up to dropbox is unavailable. I had pro for a number of months as a result of having purchased a qualifying device then it suddenly disappeared except on the odd occasion that it does recognise I have it. Totally unreliable and completely unfit for the purpose for which it was bought. Does anyone else have problems?
