User Guide
Our Jupiter Drive Cartridge System creates a hot swap capable drive cartridge system for 2.5" IDE or SATA hard drives, giving your desktop the full speed and capacity of an internal hard drive along with the convenience of a removable storage device, just like using an ordinary VCR cassette. These drive cartridges implement our new Jupiter shock protection technology featuring rugged anodized aluminum housing and shock absorption drive mounting within the enclosure. With our optional USIB interface cables, the drive enclosures (or the drive cartridge) can also be used as independent external hard drives.
With the choice of Cipher drive enclosures that come with built-in bullet proof hardware encryption technology, sensitive data stored in the hard drive can be kept secure even if the hard drive is lost or stolen. Unlike software encryption, the Addonics hardware solution encrypts and decrypts data with no measurable performance degradation and yet simple to use as there is no software to install or password to remember.
