Solo G3 Features
In a league of its own
While other drive manufactures were spending their time masking the same old unprotected hard drives in brightly colored enclosures, we were busy creating the ioSafe Solo G3; the safest, most advanced hard drive in the world. Then to top it off, we wrapped it in a purely elegant design and backed it with an unparalleled Stat Recovery Service.
The result: A combination of technology, design and versatility that is truly in a league of its own.
An aircraft black box for your data
Protects data from loss up to 1550°F for 1/2 hour per ASTM E119
DataCast endothermic fire insulation technology protects your data from extreme heat. The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperatures above 160°F, releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit during a fire.
Fan-less Near Silent Cooling
Perfect for home, small office or studios
Our latest FloSafe airflow cooling technology designed for near silent operation. Perfect for customers with sensitive ears who want the cooling and fire protection but want the silence. If destructive heat levels are sensed, such as in a fire, the FloSafe vents limit and protect your data from the extreme heat.
Protects data from loss up to 10ft for 72 hours.
HydroSafe water barrier technology is designed to protect data loss from fresh or salt water damage, including full immersion. While keeping your data dry, the HydroSafe technology still allows heat to dissipate during normal operation.
Kensington Lock Slot + Bolt down capable + Padlock-able
A Kensington lock slot is compatible with all Kensington Locks. The built in anti-theft tab allows you to easily secure the ioSafe Solo to any surface and keeps your data protected in the event of a break in. Securing the drive also prevents the drive from moving during a disaster.
