The HP RDX Removable Disk Cartridge is an easy to use, affordable and rugged removable disk cartridge that provides data protection for workstations and entry level servers. Used with an RDX docking station,it is the ideal entry level backup solution for micro or small companies who want to focus on running their business, not their backup.
Great Backup Unit
This review is from: HP StorageWorks Q2040AA Black 320GB External USB 2.0 Interface RDX RDX160 Docking Station with 2 Cartridge Bundle
Pros: Very nice drive, solid and rugged. The cartridges are veyr solidly built as well. You can use the continuous backup software that comes with it, or use your own backup software, or just drag and drop the files to the cartridges as a drive letter, just like an external USB HDD.
Cons: The software that comes with the drive insists on mirroring every single file on all of your HDDs to this unit. You may not be able to do this depending on how many HDDs you have and how much data.
Other Thoughts: I recommend getting the largest cartridges you can afford. You may be surprised how fast you can fill up a cartridge if you have a lot of data, simply becuase the bundled software keeps past versions of old files, unless you recycle the cartridge
