Imation Imation 2GB Micro Hard Drive

Getting tired of carrying that laptop back and forth between home and work?
Frequently forget to save updated versions of files? Or simply in need of a
better, higher capacity storage option for monster-size documents? Imation Corp
announces the global launch of the Imation Micro Hard Drive, available in a 2GB
capacity in mid-July. The Micro Hard Drive is ideal for on-the-go professionals
who need an ultra portable and reliable way to share, store and transport
important files.

Durable and secure, the Imation Micro Hard Drive padlock design features a
unique, integrated locking USB cable that can be used to clip the sleek storage
device to a belt loop or briefcase. The design is both stylish and practical —
it’s easy to use and effortless to carry, and ensures the cable won’t be lost
when it’s time to use it. Inside the one-ounce device is the 2005 Guinness Book
of World Records’ smallest hard disk drive (HDD), a Toshiba invention measuring
less than one inch in diameter — smaller than the size of a quarter, and yet
powerful enough to store high-capacity presentations, graphics, photos, music or
e-mails.

"The Imation Micro Hard Drive is one of the first applications to incorporate
Toshiba’s 2GB 0.85-inch HDD," said Scott Maccabe, vice president and general
manager, Toshiba Storage Device Division. "When you have the world’s smallest
hard disk drive combined with a stylish and practical application like this one,
users truly can realize the power of mass mobile storage. As the need to access
large amounts of data substantially increases in our daily business and personal
lives, the Imation Micro Hard Drive is well-positioned to become a must-have
personal technology device."

The Imation Micro Hard Drive makes sharing and transferring files easy thanks to
the Micro Hard Drive’s USB 2.0 high speed interface as well as its ability to
transfer files across PC, Mac and Linux platforms.

In addition, Imation offers users security options to help keep valuable files
protected. Imation Security Manager file synchronization and encryption software
for Windows and Mac backs up multiple file versions behind the scenes and
automatically synchronizes the copies, allowing easy access to previous versions
and preventing unauthorized access by tightly locking all files with 128-bit
encryption. The software is available for free optional download at

and reliability for on-the-go professionals," said Carla Pihowich, U.S.
marketing manager, consumer and office products, Imation. "The Micro Hard Drive
is perfect for content rich and rugged work environments such as advertising and
geoscience industries. Whether users are sharing, storing or transporting
high-capacity files, the Imation Micro Hard Drive’s design and software will
ensure their files are there when they want them."
