Verbatim MediaShare as a portable backup solution?
10 months ago

Going on a vacation with some photo gear and thinking, as always about my on-the-road backup options. Just saw this neat little device on sale - Verbatim MediaShare. I wonder if anyone here used it for backup purposes. The way I see it - I could get this device, take along a 2TB portable HDD and then upload all my shots through my tablet onto the HDD. MediaShare has a USB and an SD card ports. So if I connect the HDD to the USB and insert the SD card from camera, get my tablet connected via wifi (hotspot) to MediaShare and then in theory I should be able to transfer files from the SD (or directly from wifi capable camera) onto the HDD, correct? If this works, this could be a cheap solution for backups on location, etc. Do I understand this stuff correctly? Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Stran
