I-O Data's new line of portable hard drive, HDPD-AUT series could save your important data from being destroyed.
A unique characteristic of this drive is that it's equipped with accelerometer to detect a drop, and shuts its power off automatically before it hits the ground. Shock-absorbing material used for its outer case adds durability to the drive.
The drive passed the durability test of a drop from 1.22 meter (4 feet) high, as well as US military quality standard MIL-STD-810F.
Also, another interesting feature of the drive utilizing accelerometer is that, depending on its position (which side is on the top/bottom), it changes modes of operations.
When side-A (the side with G-SENSOR logo on) is faced up, the drive runs as a rewrittable, virtual DVD-RW.
When side-B is up, it works as a virtual support software CD-ROM. A pre-installed backup application can be accessed in this mode too, so you can boot from CD and recover your computer from backup, both from side-B.
HDPD-AUT drives can be connected via USB. They come in black and silver colorings, and data capacities of 500GB and 1TB. Compatible with Windows 8/7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X 10.6-10.8.
Now you don't have to worry about cats knocking over hard drives from your desks or several potential disasters that could damage your files!
