Sata 2.5" hard drive enclosure USB made from silicone

We geeks seem to be able to always have loose hard drive lying around.

But what do you do with all those drives?

I would say lets start with checking what is on them 🙂

This drive enclosure can be real handy for that. This enclosure is made from silicone and can just slide over a 2.5″ SATA hard drive and then you can connect it to your USB port. The enclosure is USB 2.0 so you can expect transfer rates up to 480 Mbps.

And the nice thing of the silicone is that it also protect you disk from impacts and  will keep the drive cool.

This is a 1 TB External Hard drive that comes with a USB 3.0 cable and a PCIe USB 3.0 controller to make your “old” pc ready for USB 3.0.

500GB Apricorn Bio Hard Drive

We all have external storage devices some of us use flash drives and some of use use hard drives but we all seem to have some of them lying around. But how safe is your data on those devices?

Right about 95% of that data is not secure and that means in the wrong hands it could be dangerous for the data owner.

So why not get a device that is safer?

The Apricorn Bio Hard Drive will encrypt all your data real-time 128-bit AES hardware encryption making the drive useless for thieves even if they remove the drive from the enclosure. And lucky for you there is no password necessary to get to your data either because this storage device reads you fingerprint.
So no worries that someone would figure out your password and steal you data anyways. With the Apericorn Bio Drive your data is safe where ever you take it.

Storage that is safe in water and fire

We all have them nice external storage solutions. They don’t cost much either but how safe is your data on it?

I guess most of us will loose everything when our home would burn down and that is a shame to loose all those memories all those holiday photo’s all those documents all gone forever.

But why? You know for just a little bit more you can own an external hard drive from ioSafe and they can be underwater or even in a fire and your data is still safe. If you don’t believe me search for iosafe on Youtube and see what they do with those drives.

You see data can be safer then you have it now and if that isn’t enough ioSafe would even pay if you disk is not readable any more. They would pay up to 1000 dollars to a data recovery company to get you data back.

I would say go check out the IoSafe Solo 2 TB Fireproof and Waterproof Desktop External Hard Drive with 5 Year Data Recovery Service and see how to safe your important files.
