Regular portable hard drives can often prove to be fragile and unreliable. Even the most careful of users can’t help it if their drive shuffles around in their laptop bag or takes an accidental fall off the desk. Unfortunately, these drives are often unrecoverable after these incidents, leading to lost files and frustration.
The ioSafe Rugged portable hard drive is built to withstand the worst possible conditions. The drive is crush resistant up to 5,000 pounds, can be fully immersed in diesel fuel, oils or hydraulic fluid and can take continuous exposure to UV rays, blowing sand and rain. In addition, the Rugged can handle full submersion in up to ten feet of water for a 72-hour period, keeping user’s data safe through potential floods.
The Rugged drive is the perfect gift for users who value their data as much as they value their physical possessions. Giving the Rugged hard drive this Christmas is giving peace of mind, as recipients can be certain no matter where they go or what they do, their most precious files safe from nearly anything that can be thrown at them.
