Like an aircraft black box for your data, the rugged desktop ioSafe Solo external hard drive brings fire and water data protection to a price range that everyone can afford. With capacities from 500GB to 2TB, the ioSafe Solo can safely backup precious digital family photo albums, MP3 music libraries and video memories from not only primary hard drive failure but from natural disasters as well. For business, the ioSafe Solo hard drive is a great way to protect entire PCs or Macs, customer databases or to secure regulated information including records (HIPAA, Sox, etc.) or credit card information (PCI regulated). Businesses use the Solo hard drive as a backup and storage device, no longer worrying about data loss from moving computer tapes and files offsite. Like other ioSafe products, the ioSafe Solo uses technology including FloSafe air flow cooling, HydroSafe waterproof barriers and the DataCast fireproof insulation.

  • newegg Fireproof The ioSafe Solo employs FloSafe cooling vent, proprietary DataCast endothermic insulation and MirrorGuard technologies to provide maximum data protection from heat damage, with fireproof capability of up to 1550° F for half an hour.
  • newegg Waterproof The ioSafe Solo uses a water barrier technology called HydroSafe to protect data loss from fresh or salt water damage, including full immersion, with waterproof capability of up to 10 feet of fresh water or salt water for 3 full days.
  • newegg USB 2.0 Interface The ioSafe Solo features a USB 2.0 interface for high-speed data transfers and plug-and-play connectivity for any PC, laptop or Mac computer.
  • newegg Air Flow Cooling The ioSafe Solo features FloSafe Air Flow Cooling technology to optimize hot air dissipation for maximum hard drive reliability.

1 out of 5 eggsHangs my PC at boot up

Pros: Just what I wanted to secure some backups on site.

Cons: My PC hangs during boot up posting with this device on. BIOS and settings have all been updated and verified. Support will send me a replacement after I ship it back to them which means I have to somehow get more backups in place to send it out.

Other Thoughts: As an IT Professional I really thought these units were affordable and just what was needed if you don't have backups off site. Now I have reservations about recommending them although no one else seems to have this issue. Maybe I got the only bad one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive & great support

Pros: Drive is as solid as a rock. Had to call their support today, and was pleasantly surprised. Super great tech person stayed on the phone with me for about an hour while we figured out that something had infected the drive. He helped me clean it, and got everything working right again. He went way beyond what most support does these days. Also this drive is much faster than my old external drive. And, as always, Newegg got it to me really fast.

Cons: Fan runs continuously

Other Thoughts: Would definitely buy another ioSafe product.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Backup Device

Pros: Product specifications: Fireproof and Waterproof, may be bolted or locked down for security.

Cons: Price. This USB only device must be attached directly to a computer, but an even more expensive networked attached device is available.

Other Thoughts: I purchased an ioSafe Solo 2TB USB drive almost 2 years ago and it has worked flawlessly. I needed more space, so I just purchased another identical unit. Both were purchased from Newegg which had the best price (watch for sales). As a home disaster recovery device I can't think of a better solution than this. I am not diligent enough to take my data offsite, and I don't trust or want to pay for this much online storage, so this is a good solution. Unfortunately the devices are not upgrade-able to a larger drive.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the IO Safe product line!

Pros: I love these devices. I run a computer consulting company and have had numerous clients purchase these devices for peace of mind. Out of the box these units are constructed very well, feel very durable, and offer peace of mind as a backup solution. I hope to purchase one for my own personal use soon. I believe they are getting rid of this particular model on the manufacturer's website as of 2014 so get them while they last here!! Love ya Newegg!!!

Cons: None found so far.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend these devices. They come included with a 1-year data recovery service, which can also be extended up to 5 years for an additional fee.

5 out of 5 eggssecure data for clients

Pros: ioSafe enables us to provide proper disaster recovery and excellent reassurance to our clients who trust us to keep their data safe and business critical systems running.

Cons: I would like to be able to lock in the power and usb cables as an occasional user error can take the ioSafe down.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this external drive over all others for native windows server backups.

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid Hard Drive

Pros: Very simple to use. My wife had no issues with it. Windows XP, and Windows 7 both recognize the drive and automatically installed the drive as if it was a local hard drive.

Cons: It's big and heavy, but so are safes.

Other Thoughts: This thing is designed to take a beating. Don't be surprised that it's big and bulky, but I didn't buy this to be something i carry around with me everywhere. I can see how this drive can survive fire and flooding. Data transfers are ok, but not the most fastest, nor the slowest i've seen in a external drive either.

I've yet had a fire to properly put thing to the test (and I hope that I won't).
I would recommend this to anybody not wanting to or incapable of using/trusting cloud services for data archiving. The drive came with additional insurance to cover data recovery in the event that the plastic connectors are melted off during a fire (a nice plus).
