The Toughest and Sportiest drive there is – optimal protection for your data!

In today’s world mobility has become a key factor. Business-user or consumer… we all carry our data with us and we all require it to be there when we need it. Imagine what can happen when you’re on the move, for example biking, commuting to the office, running to catch a flight...and suddenly your external hard drive accidentally falls from your notebook case or jacket pocket… it breaks, and hundreds of hours of video’s, music, your work, gigabytes of spreadsheets, documents, photo’s are all gone. Not anymore! The ToughDrive Sport offers you, next to a unique sportive design, a drive that can withstand bumps and drops so your drive is still fully fucntional after it has dropped. You can still access your valuable fi les. A safe feeling – provided for you by Freecom!

Secure hardware password protection
The ToughDrive Sport is equipped with a secure hardware 256bit password protection feature. Your password is encrypted and stored in a chip – the data on the drive can only be accessed by entering the correct password. The obligatory combination of the hardware chip and password to unlock the drive and access the data means that even if the internal hard drive is taken out of its original enclosure and assembled into another enclosure, people will never be able to access the data. Should you forget your password or should you lose your ToughDrive,
the only way for anyone to be able to continue using the drive is by reformatting it, thereby erasing all data. There is no possibility for password recovery. There is no safer way to protect your data !

It can also withstand up to 300G of force while turned on and up to 1,000G when not. To further add to this thing?s general security, there?s also 256-bit data encryption. But toughness often isn?t enough. You need real performance, too. The ToughDrive Sport is available in three models?250GB, 320GB and 500GB.

This Freecom device also has a USB 2.0 cable that wraps around it, making connecting to a computer a snap. Transfer speeds can reach up to 480Mbps. Apparently, Windows users can transfer at even faster speeds using a Turbo USB driver. Additionally, there is backup software that makes saving your work a breeze. You can get the Freecom ToughDrive Sport now in Europe for $144, $170 and $241, respectively.
