Intelligent file management with Backup Manager 2

Backup Manager 2 software periodically, and automatically, backs up data from your PC to the hard drive. It utilises an incremental back-up system, so will only back up files that have changed in the folders users designate for monitoring. Also, even if the external hard drive is not connected, Backup Manager 2 can temporarily back up your PC's data to a cloud storage service, such as Dropbox. *Please note that this software is only compatible with Windows operating systems.

Easy compatibility with the FAT32 Formatter

Connect to older PCs, PlayStaion®3 and Handycam® models. The hard drive's FAT32 formatter opens up storage options for those products that do not support the NTFS files system. Plus, with smart software there's no complicated setup: just plug in and start using your drive straight away. *Please note that this process removes all existing data from the hard drive—including software—so making a backup is advised.

Password Protection Manager for total security

Enjoy peace of mind with the free Password Protection Manager. Once activated, you're required to enter a password every time you connect the drive to a PC. You can use your password to only lock certain partitions, leaving others "open" for flexible usage. In addition, 256-bit AES encryption adds further security.
