For secure storage I would recommend using a unencrypted hard drive
Perennially disappointed, Amazon
9 August 2014
Summary: I've had serious problems with this item. The instructions are very confusing, and I've had to wipe the drive more than once as the password I use as standard is not recognised. For secure storage I would recommend using a unencrypted hard drive, and installing truecrypt on it.

Summary: This is the second device that I have bought. I use them so that I can securely backup files and store them away from home. I've found the devices quite straight forward to use and they worked straight out of the box. In my case this was Vista Business and Windows 7 Ultimate.
Summary: A very good price for a secure device of this capacity. It was bought for secure transfer of very large volumes of sensitive data between sites. It was reviewed and passed as fit for purpose by our security experts and has proved to be easy and quick to use.
