Solo G3 Features

In a league of its own
While other drive manufactures were spending their time masking the same old unprotected hard drives in brightly colored enclosures, we were busy creating the ioSafe Solo G3; the safest, most advanced hard drive in the world. Then to top it off, we wrapped it in a purely elegant design and backed it with an unparalleled Stat Recovery Service.

The result: A combination of technology, design and versatility that is truly in a league of its own.


An aircraft black box for your data

  • Fireproof
    Protects data from loss up to 1550°F for 1/2 hour per ASTM E119

    DataCast endothermic fire insulation technology protects your data from extreme heat. The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperatures above 160°F, releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit during a fire.

  • Fan-less Near Silent Cooling
    Perfect for home, small office or studios

    Our latest FloSafe airflow cooling technology designed for near silent operation. Perfect for customers with sensitive ears who want the cooling and fire protection but want the silence. If destructive heat levels are sensed, such as in a fire, the FloSafe vents limit and protect your data from the extreme heat.

  • Waterproof
    Protects data from loss up to 10ft for 72 hours.

    HydroSafe water barrier technology is designed to protect data loss from fresh or salt water damage, including full immersion. While keeping your data dry, the HydroSafe technology still allows heat to dissipate during normal operation.

  • Theftproof
    Kensington Lock Slot + Bolt down capable + Padlock-able

    A Kensington lock slot is compatible with all Kensington Locks. The built in anti-theft tab allows you to easily secure the ioSafe Solo to any surface and keeps your data protected in the event of a break in. Securing the drive also prevents the drive from moving during a disaster.

  • Data Recovery Service
    1, 3, or 5 year plans available

    The ultimate safety net for the ultimate hard drive, the ioSafe Data Recovery Service (DRS) provides a one time use, no questions asked data and hardware recovery service. For any loss, no matter the reason.

  • USB 3.0
    Backwards Compatible to USB 2.0

    Blazingly fast yet Plug and play USB 3.0 connectivity allows you to use your ioSafe with virtually any Mac or PC. Data transfer up to 5Gbit/s.

  • Backup Software

    Includes the award-winning GenieTM Timeline Pro backup software ($60 retail value) that features Continuous Data Protection, Full System Disaster Recovery, Open File Backup, backup of files synced between your iPhone/iPad/iPod or BlackBerry device and computer, and more.

  • No-HassleTM Warranty

    If your ioSafe Solo G3 stops working for absolutely any reason within the warranty period, we'll replace it or repair it. It's that simple.
