Good Product for safely backing up data


from York, PA  -  Power user

I wanted to be able to backup a large amount of family photos and videos. This was way too much data to back up to cloud regularly and the Monthly off-site backups I was doing left a lot of data each month vulnerable in case of a fire. This gave me the optin to backup the important data on my server several times a day. This drive is big and heavy for an external hard drive, but it needs to be to be able to protect if from fire and water damage. It's got pretty quick read and write times using the esata connection to my Windows Server 2012 essentials machine and was easy to set up multiple backups each day. It Would be nice if IoSafe made an esata raid box that could use multiple drives. I know they have the NAS box that can do this, but I don't need it to connect to the entire network or have all the NAS functionality, I just want something to back up my server's data. The Esata connection is much faster than sending this ammount of data over the network.


Expensive, but just what I needed


from York, PA  -  Power user

I use this to backup a WSE 2012 server (2 times daily) that contains all my family photos and videos. I didn't want to have to send that much data to the cloud for backup and making regular backups to keep off site is tedious. I still make backups and take of site every other month, but this gives me peace of mind in between off site backups. The eSata 2.0 connection works pretty quickly as compared to the USB 2.0, but it would have been nice if it were esata 3.0 or USB 3.0. It has a good amount of storage for my needs right now, but for planning for the future, a larger drive would have been nice without having to go their much more expensive network connected NAS Unit. It would be nice if ioSafe had a larger drive available in this unit or if they had an eSata 3.0/USB 3.0 raid capable array.
