  1. I bought one to hold some data based off my Windows 10 work computer (for when I am travelling for work). There only seems to be Apple and Android apps, not Windows, so I can’t access my work data. Complete waste of $169. Not happy.

    1. WIndows movie has be en dead and killed off some time now and they have no app which is obvious to see on site why would they make an app for a dead platform
