While we are facing a large amount of natural disasters and unexpected accidents today like floods, fires, tsunami, etc which threaten the data security of our storgae devices like laptops, desktops, servers, portable devices, etc. To find the data back from burnt drives and drown drives is not easy and often requires a lot of money.

ioSafe, as one disaster proof hardware supplier, has began to provide water and fire proof security products since 2005.  ioSafe solo is one of them and it’s claimed to be the fastest waterproof and fireproof external hard drives in the world. It adopts USB2.0 with a capacity up to 2TB.

Fireproof: 1550F, ½ hr per ASTM E119
Waterproof: to 10 feet water depth, 3 days

1 Year Data Recovery Service Standard (3 and 5 year plans available) and 3 Year manufacturer’s warranty for defects Standard (5 year available with purchase of 5 year DRS upgrade) are provided.

Anyway, we can see the quoted data recovery services are not cheap and almost 10 times of the value of the drive itself. It’s necessary to set up your own disaster data recovery plan for your storage medias or have a regular data backup plan.
