    What does it mean when the website says that the G-drive mini can not do video editing? Can it back up home movies that I make? Thanks to all who can answer this for me.

    Yes it can backup stuff... It's talking about the connections speeds from the drive to the computer. IE. USB can't do realtime playback of full uncompressed 1080p HD footage.

    Other than that it's a normal harddrive... if it'll fit on the drive, then you can back it up on it.

    BTW, i exclusively use g-tech HDD's, almost all of their stuff is capable of editing. What drive are u looking at?

    G-drive mini 500Gb

    Would this be best for desktop backups?
