Tandberg Data RDX QuikStor External USB Drive Part# 8631

The RDX QuikStor combines the simplicity of tape based backup with the speed and instant access of a hard drive with internal and external drives and removable cartridges in a range of capacities.


RDX QUIKSTOR combines the simplicity of tape based backup with the speed and flexibility of a hard drive. Compact internal or external drives take neat pocket-sized cartridges. Each cartridge is a rugged miniature hard disk - your computer will recognize it and provide instant access and easy drag and drop control. Or simply run the backup software provided for a total backup of your hard drive. When a cartridge gets full, just insert another - simple!


RDX QUIKSTOR is designed to sustain data transfers up to 45MB/sec - that’s more than 162GB/hr. With capacities of 160, 320, 500, 640GB or 1TB of data on a single cartridge you have enough capacity to back up your entire computer, ensuring your data is fully protected yet instantly available. Recording is fast - so is backup restoration. There is none of the rewind delay of tape systems. Access is near-instant, allowing you to work directly with data on the cartridge, just as you would with any other hard drive.


Drives are tough, and cartridges are shockproof, and rugged enough to last for over 10 years - knocks and drops don't mean lost data. Plus your valuable data is protected through strong encryption, ensuring complete peace of mind.


The cartridges are small and durable, so you can slip them in your pocket to take away. Store them offsite for archiving - or use them to transfer data to another computer.
