Product Information

  • Overview

    Combining advanced technology and elegant design, the rugged ioSafe Solo G3 hard drive delivers an unmatched level of fire and water protection for all the digital assets backed up from your Mac—rather like an aircraft's black box—yet it's truly affordable. And if disaster does strike, the ioSafe Data Recovery Service is there to help restore your data and hardware, whatever the circumstance.

    A quiet addition to any environment

    In your home, small office, or studios, the advanced ioSafe FloSafe airflow cooling technology provides nearly silent operation. If the Solo G3 senses destructive heat levels, such as in a fire, the FloSafe vents limit and protect your data from the extreme heat.

    Families, businesses, and large enterprises alike turn to the ioSafe Solo and Data Recovery Service for the added peace of mind of knowing their digital lives – their memories, media, portfolios, data, and records – are protected by the ultimate external hard drive and ultimate safety net.

I wasn't expecting much from USB 3.0, but as it turn This beast is solid and I feel a helluva lot safer about my data storage now. I wasn't expecting much from USB 3.0, but as it turns out, it was way faster than I had anticipated. Backing up my entire hard drive took minutes instead of hours, and it was ridiculously easy to set up as well.

    As a volunteer firefighter, I wanted to say another great thing about the fireproof aspect of this hard drive. There's an event in a fire called flashover that basically means when all combustible products in a room reach simultaneous ignition. It's among a firefighter's worst fears because our turnout gear, at best, would give us about 3 seconds of protection in a flashover. Flashovers occur at around 1100 degrees F. This hard drive is designed to take 1500 degrees F for 30 minutes. G-D forbid there's a burst pipe in the walls, or a fire at my place, at least I know that my data and my family pictures will be safe.
