External Hard Drive Review

The ioSafe Solo is reviewed in the Ottawa Citizen by Murray Mill. Like many of the reviews online, this is another positive review.

"PROS: Security, the ability to preserve and get back data in the event of a disaster, decent price, very quiet.

CONS: My God it’s heavy! My Solo was/is a USB-only device. There are many faster alternatives, but they cost a lot more."

Serious Fire Proof Safe Protection

If there is one thing that you should do in your lifetime, you should protect your important papers and any items you hold dear to your heart. You should invest in a fire proof safe. It would almost be like losing your purse or wallet if you had your things burn in a fire or were stolen in a burglary from your home.
There are some things that are just irreplaceable and some that are but it would take time and money. If your house has never been broken into consider yourself very lucky. If you have never had to endure a fire in your home once again consider yourself very lucky. There are so many things that we take for granted in our lives that when we hear the heartbreaking stories from others we can only empathize and it might be just the trigger we need before considering doing something about it.
If you have never checked out fire proof safes you will find that they come in all different sizes and are very easy to use and store. The difference between a regular safe and a fire proof safe is the tolerance of heat the safe can withstand. They are easy to use and once you get one you will be surprised how much you end up using it because you may start using it for cash and other valuables you keep in the house. The other nice feature is you can store them anywhere. If you have a small closet in the hall you may decide that is an area to place your fire proof safe because it is not an obvious spot for a burglar to look.
You can also look at a fireproof safe for safe keeping jewelry and passports. Y ou certainly would not want to lose your family's heirloom items or a passport for it is either a very difficult and time consuming to replace or a highly prized possession in the family. Fire proof safes also make a nice gift. It is thoughtful and lets the person know you care. It makes a good wedding or house warming present too. Do not be the one who loses their belongings in a fire when you had a chance to prevent it. Take the time and do some research before purchasing a fire proof safe for your home.
