1. Getting Started

Before using your Samsung Portable SSD T1 (referred to as T1), please read the User Manual thoroughly and ensure that you use the product in a safe and appropriate manner. The images shown in this User

Manual may differ from the actual product, and the contents of this manual may be subject to change without prior notice.

* Please make sure that all the contents are included in the box after purchase.

Box contents may differ depending on the packaging type.

System Requirements

The following requirements must be met in order to make full use of the fast data transfer speed of your

T1.

1

PCs with USB 3.0 support

USB (Universal Serial Bus) is a serial input/output technology for connecting computers to peripherals. USB 3.0 (5Gbps) supports up to 10 times faster data transfer than USB 2.0 (480

Mbps). The T1's data transfer speed is optimal when connected via USB 3.0. Using a lower version such as USB 2.0 or 1.1 will result in reduced performance.

* Performance may vary depending on each user's system, even when using a USB 3.0 connection. In particular, when UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) is not supported, performance may be impaired. Confirm the compatibility from the host PC.

Caution: When your T1 is connected to a device that only supports USB 2.0 or 1.1, the device may not recognise your T1 or may display a popup suggesting that formatting is required. If your T1 is formatted as suggested in this popup, any data stored on the device will be deleted permanently. Do not format your device. When you connect your T1 to a device that supports the USB 3.0 standard, the T1 will be recognised and you will be able to use it.

2

Connecting T1 to USB ports on devices other than PCs

Using the T1 by connecting it to devices other than PCs that support USB may be restricted, depending on the USB specifications and operating system (OS) of each device. When using the

T1 with devices other than PCs (e.g.: TVs, printers, audio players or other devices that support

USB), please check the specifications of each device first.

T1 File System

Your T1 is formatted using the exFAT file system by default to support both Windows OS and Mac OS.

Please note that there may be restrictions on reading or writing data when using your T1 on both

Windows OS and Mac OS. If you plan to only use the T1 on a single OS, it is recommended that you format your T1 using the appropriate file system for the OS.

Important Information:

* When using exFAT on both operating systems, data writing may become locked and you may only be able to read data. If such a problem occurs, you can restore write access by following the instructions below.

1 Mac OS: Connect your T1 to your Mac OS again, and then eject the volume (T1).

2 Windows OS: In the notification window that appears when write access is disabled, click Scan and Fix. Then run Check Disk (CHKDSK).

If you closed Check Disk, you can run Check Disk by selecting the drive  right-click  choose

Properties  choose Error-Checking under the Tools tab.

* When your T1 is connected to a device other than a PC, usage may be restricted depending on the file system supported by the OS of the device and the file system of the data stored on your T1. Please check the device's supported file systems before use. Please note that if T1 is formatted using a different file system in order to enable use with a particular device, all user data stored on your T1 will be deleted during formatting. Once formatted, user data cannot be recovered.

Capacity of T1

When your T1 is connected to a PC, the capacity displayed on the system (Windows Explorer on

Windows OS) may vary from the capacity marked on the product, depending on the drive's file system, partitioning and computer system.

* The capacity marked on the product is calculated according to the following standard:

1MB = 1,000,000bytes / 1GB=1,000,000,000bytes / 1TB=1,000,000,000,000bytes

2. Using T1

Important Information:

Your T1 is partitioned into a security partition and a data storage partition by default in order to provide a higher level of security. The T1 is preconfigured to display only the security partition under factory settings. Therefore, to use the data storage partition, your T1 must be activated on a PC. The T1 cannot be activated if the PC does not fulfill the recommended specifications or if the T1 is connected to the USB port of a device other than a PC. Please activate the product using a PC that meets the recommended specifications.

Connecting to a PC

Connect the T1 to a desktop PC or laptop using a USB port as shown in the figure below.

If connected properly, only the security partition (128 MB on Windows 7) will be displayed on the PC. Once the device is activated using the supplied activation software, the entire data storage partition will be recognised by the PC.

Activation

Running the software

You can activate your T1 by using the appropriate software.

During the activation process, you can designate a unique name for your T1 and enable password protection for data security.

1 In Windows Explorer (Windows OS) or Finder (Mac OS), select the T1_Setup drive launch icon.

Once the SAT driver is installed, disconnect and re-connect the T1 to confirm that the driver has been installed successfully.

Important Information: The manufacturer and retailer are not liable for loss of user data caused by forgotten or stolen passwords. If you forget your password, your T1 can be restored to its factory settings at a Samsung Service Centre. However, all user data will be lost in the process.

Restrictions: Password protection only works properly on certain versions of Windows OS or Mac

OS. If password protection is enabled, you will not be able to use the T1 with devices other than PCs, even if the device supports USB connection, due to system differences. If you plan to use T1 with devices other than PCs, please disable password protection. You can disable password protection by navigating to the product's Profile screen from the Home screen.

2 If you did not enable password protection in the activation process, you can start using the product without additional settings.

Caution: Even if password protection was not enabled, the T1 may not function properly when connected to a device other than a PC with USB support, depending on specific system conditions. Please check the USB connection and supported file systems for the device you wish to use with T1.

Note: If you later choose to use password protection, a separate setting is required, as the activation process has already been completed. You can enable password protection by using the T1 icon

( ) in the taskbar notification area of the PC where the activation process was performed. On other

PCs, you can enable password protection after downloading “Samsung Portable SSD.exe” from the
