We had a chance to take a deep look at the 1TB BackupDrive, a device that fills a niche within the company's offerings.

Small but substantial, the M2 doesn't feel like a normal hard drive when it's in the palm of your hand. It's about the size of a business card case, and while light, its metal on metal construction give it a sort of presence that exudes toughness, durability, and a bit of classy elegance.
With big data a hot topic, it's only a matter of time before home users realize the need for everyday protection. I've already written at length about how these drives are useful for spies and executives, but we're moving into an era where everyone's storing their pictures, personal spreadsheets, and even their school assignments on drives.
