ioSafe makes water, fire, and bomb-proof hard drives and they’ve just upgraded their SoloPRO device to support up to 3 terabytes of storage – enough for just about everything you could ever want to store. The drive is $499.99 and includes 12 months of data recovery service as well as eSATA and USB 3.0 connections.
The drive can withstand 1550° F for 30 minutes and live underwater at 10 feet for three days. My neighbor Carmine took a blowtorch to one of these things so you know it’s going to survive.
The 3TB drive is available now.
