Product Description

With its iconic orange design and secure form factor, the Rugged has been one of our most popular hard drives. With the Rugged Mini, we've shrunk the Rugged, and added tons of new features, making it a solid investment for on-the-go data transport. The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with our popular Rugged Hard Disk, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But with the Rugged Mini, we've gone a step further: it's also rain-resistant, and pressure-resistant-you can drive over it with a 1-ton car, and it still works! Its small size makes it perfect to take with you wherever you go, and its Rugged exterior provides protection against accidental drops, shock, or pressure. With the Rugged Mini, you've got the speed of USB 3.0, and full backward compatibility with USB 2.0, meaning that you can use it on almost any computer. You can transfer a 700MB video file in less than 7 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0.* Additionally, you can use the LaCie Mac® USB 3.0 Driver to improve data transfer speed on your Mac (up to a 30% performance increase compared to FireWire 800). The Rugged Mini doesn't just keep your data safe from external forces-it also protects against intrusion. With secure password protection software built-in, it's easy to make sure that your files are secure and protected, no matter where you go. You can even use access your password-protected files using any computer, ensuring complete data mobility-and complete data safety.

Unfortunately, this hard drive failed in under one month. I bought it in an Apple store, so exchanged without any trouble for another one. That one failed 18 months later will all my data. It was never dropped or even carried around, sat quietly at home to back up my numerous images. Won't be buying Lacie Rugged again!

This is my 2nd portable hard drive and seems like the best! Working absolutely fine, faster and password protected area is just wonderful. General formatting for Windows took around 7-8 minutes for entire 1TB but password protection encrypted area for 200GB formatting took around 3 hours; however it is one of best function which can be dismounted any time or can be configured to dismount if idle for whatever time you specify though normal area/unprotected area is always connected unless you disconnect it physically.

When you first plug-in it will give you three option to format 1. Windows 2. Mac or 3. Lynux. Only limitation here is it won't allow you to partition the Hard Drive which is not a big deal as it can be resolved by making several folders however after the formatting is successfully done then it can be password protected for the size you want. In my case I did 200GB. This protected area is 256 bit encrypted which is very good I guess one of the best industry standard ensured security. By the way no one should make the whole of this hard drive password protected because in that case you cannot use or access this drive in every computer because to access this password protected are you need to run pr-eloaded .exe file which cannot be run unless you are administrator or Power user for that computer i.e. in offices computers are restricted so you cannot access restricted area and if the whole external hard drive is password protected than no meaning of portability . The unprotected area can be access anywhere you want as like any other USB Drive. I am using USB 2.00 though it is absolutely faster i.e. selected whole of 18 GB of documents which transferred around 15 minutes in one go and very quiet, no noise at all. Do hope and pray that price of this product would come down and very soon the company would make 5 TB in the same physical size. Hope it would last long. I would highly recommend this product, without any question you can buy it.

I bought this to travel with. It is not rugged or robust, simply because the cable does not connect well. It kept on disconnecting itself for no reason. In the end it not only corrupted, but also corrupted the hard drive on my laptop. Much of my work is unreadable and although I have it backed up at home, my edits are not. I am still waiting to see how serious my work loss will be when I talk to the computer manufacturer (Apple). The response from lacie was to buy another cable so they obviously know there is a problem. No offer to send me one though! They did not respond when I asked if it could be any usb3 cable to connect to a laptop. I examined the cable provided by Lacie carefully and noted that the shielding is cracking slightly where the usb 3 connection is - I can actually see a few fine bare wires! Hardly fits the description robust. Robust should mean everything is robust and all connections secure.

There may be other problems as really the only difference between this and any other hard drive seems to be the rubbery shell. Good marketing technique. I cannot recommend it. Would you like to be in my position? In the meantime the search goes on for a reliable, portable hard drive. Does one exist?

Just an after note - LACIE customer service is the worst I have ever come across. They made me jump through hoops to get the product repaired. No, they would not even replace it, nor the cable. I did lose a lot of work permanently and ended up considerably out of pocket due to their attitude and policies.

I bought this item because I wanted to have a drive that would stand up to being carried in a bag. But this hasn't. The USB connector on the drive has fallen apart. I am about to find out how the seller responds. I am disappointed because it seems to tick all the right boxes - small, light, good price.

Based on the specifications, and the reviews of this storage device on Amazon, I bought two to solve my storage needs (at different times). Plus I also liked and it's perceived `ruggedness' of said product. The first device died after having it for the less than 24 hours! It appears the controller card failed - very poor. The second drive lasted 6 months, it never failed outright but the heat issues were such that you could burn yourself, and hence I returned it. These devices were never abused and were used with care. I may have been unlucky, but it has stopped me buying another of these products by LaCie. Credit to Amazon for very good customer service with resolving the issues I had. Search the Web and see other reviews and blogs, as I am not the only person to have real problems with these devices. Clearly these devices are more style than function - all very poor and hence not recommended at all.

I bought this and initially like most of the reviews I was impressed, it's a quick drive, storage is good and the protection is good for being used daily and carried. However after 3 months the connection went (snapped off inside the drive), I do admit to sometimes forgetting to unplug before sticking it in my bag, and Lacie were very good at sending a replacement. However this time despite ensuring I take the cable out of the rear before storing the connection has again started to work loose after a further 4months. For a drive which is suppose to be rugged this is poor. I've had other drives for up to 2-3 years before and never had the cable issue, not sure if the USB 3.0 type connection is the issue (it's a less snug fit) but it's an issue either way. I am now looking for replacements as I can't rely on it.
