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.

Failed After 3 Months (PIN Rejection)+ Data Lost + Amazon Replacement Delivery Failure

Amazon Verified Purchase "UK", Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: Treated with utmost respect for 3 months AND THEN after 3 months suddenly REFUSED to accept the PIN I strongly believe was the correct PIN. Tried multiple combinations but in vain. All Date lost with no backup. ask Amazon for the replacement BUT Amazon delivery was no more faithful than the faulty disk. Seems like that their both replacement has been lost by their "Amazon Logistics". Sadly Amazon policy is not to send the 3rd replacement.

Very pleased with my iStorage 1TB 256 AES diskAshur

Zed "Zed", Amazon
8 September 2013
  • 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. The touch pad is easy to use and each button makes a single positive click, so no mis-entering of passwords. There are quite a few features that make this device very positive in my eyes.

  • 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.

Issues were resolved

Matt, Amazon
24 August 2012
  • Summary: Upon first booting up the drive and putting in the default code of 123456, the unit would not let me gain access. Seems something had gone wrong when it was programmed in the factory. I phoned up tech support and had the issue fixed within a few mins but reinitiating the unit. Now it works perfectly. I cant fault the unit now that it functions correctly, with fast transfer speeds and near silent operation.

So far, so good.

John, Amazon
18 August 2012
  • Summary: After a month of use I am fairly pleased with this. I use it to run my portable software on multiple PC's and it does the job. Only thing you need to be aware of is to disable any sleep or hibernation features on the host computer. If you don't it loses connection and crashes the drive and you have to use CHKDSK to correct bad sectors etc. There seems to be no way to circumvent this which is a shame. But overall, very pleased with this purchase so far.
