Online data backup services are great. Knowing that your data is safe away from your office or home gives you a peace of mind.

However, it is best to have your data backed up online and on external drives. This will ensure that you have redundancy in case of a disaster. But, there are many external drives out there. Which portable external hard drive is the best one? How do I choose the best product?

Well, we could list many of the external drives for you here. We don’t promote hard drives in our website, but this video really got our attention. Let the video below speak for itself.

The external hard drive is from ioSafe ( and it is fireproof, waterproof, shockproof and crushproof. Very hard to believe, but it is true! However, this external drive is not immune to theft; that is why online back-up is important.

BBC correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones takes the “almost-indestructible” ioSafe for a spin during CES 2010.

Key Features of the ioSafe External Drive:

  • Fireproof up to 1550 degs F for 1/2 an hour
