Imation Releases 4GB Micro Hard Drive
Imation Corp has released the new 4GB (gigabyte) drive, now available through Imation authorized distributors and retailers worldwide. With a unique padlock design, the Imation Micro Hard Drive features a flexible USB connector that locks directly into the drive and can be used to clip the storage device to a belt loop, keychain or briefcase.

The Imation Micro Hard Drive encompasses a small Toshiba hard disk drive with less than one inch in diameter.

"Imation was the first in the industry to design a device using the Toshiba 0.85-inch hard disk drive, recognizing the need for ultra portable storage," said Scott Maccabe, vice president and general manager, Toshiba Storage Device Division. "By utilizing Toshiba's hard disk drive technology and responding to customer feedback, Imation has created an improved micro storage device that promises today's mobile professionals a small yet powerful storage device."

This new Micro Hard Drive is compatible with PC, Mac and Linux operating systems. It also includes mechanisms to lock all files with 128-bit encryption.

The Imation Security Manager file synchronization software for Windows and Mac creates a backup copy of data from a computer and automatically synchronizes the copies to provide easier access to previous versions. A software upgrade featuring enhancements such as a streamlined user interface, which makes protecting and restoring files even easier, and modifications to make the device compatible with Mac OS X Tiger software will be available for both the 2GB and 4GB drives in early January 2006.

Manufacturer's suggested retail price is US$189.
