Using the attached USB 2.0 cable, the hot-pluggable Store 'n' Go HD Drives can be easily moved from computer to computer without having to shut down or reboot the system. The USB cable conveniently swings out to make it easy to connect to your personal or guest computer and tucks away for convenience when not in use.
