PopDrive Mirrored Hard Drive Makes Backing Up Files Worry-Free
January 3rd, 2011
Ever had a hard drive crash? Such events can be disastrous, to say the least. Years of pictures, videos, music, and documents can all disappear in a flash. And unless you have some sort of backup in place, there is absolutely no way to get it all back. Scary, right?
So how does one back up their precious data? There are many ways, but I think this PopDrive might be one of my favorites. This device holds a pair of laptop hard drives that are mirrored, which means that they both contain the exact same data. If something happens to one of the drives, you can simply replace it, and all of your information will still be intact.
There are ways to setup such a backup solution on your computer, or even on a small file server. However, for those that aren’t so tech-savvy, this might be the perfect simple solution. No word yet on pricing, but we should find out later in the week, during CES.
