I can remember the days of having important information stored on 5 ¼”  and 3 ½” floppy disks, stored away in boxes. The trouble with storing important information on a floppy disk is that, over time, information would degrade and sooner or later it would become just a coaster to place your drink on. Then came CDs and DVDs, which worked very well and they even increased the speed in which you could access the information. The only problem with those types of media is they are very easily scratched and rendered useless. Now we have USB drives, which are fine and, really, the only problem with them is that they are easily lost or misplaced, and, unless they have some sort of security software on them, the information stored is available to anyone who finds it.

Of course we have always had the hard disk drives running in our systems, but unfortunately, they are a tad tougher to take with us when we are becoming increasingly more mobile. Generally, hard drives can fill up quickly with the operating system, office programs and the list of software and files goes on, so what are we supposed to do with all the information we need to store? I suppose we could go out and just buy an enclosure of sorts. However, hard drives have been known to fail, so where does that leave us? Fortunately, there are companies like Icy Dock who recognize the importance of our data and have multiple solutions for the public at large.

The Icy Dock MB662USEB-2S-1 is just one of their hard drive enclosures that not only can house two hard drives, but it can set your drives up in a RAID for some added peace of mind. The MB662USEB-2S-1 isn’t much larger than a 3 ½” hard drive, so it can be considered portable as well. Icy Dock's MB662USEB-2S-1 features 1394b fire wire, e-SATA and USB 2.0 connectivity, and it supports up to 3TB HDD for a total of 6 Terabytes of storage on the go. The MB662USEB-2S-1 is constructed of solid aluminum for added portability, strength, and protection.
