You'll RAVE About This Road-ready RAID!So you've just recorded that super-important session, and all of a sudden, your hard drive just stops working. Yeah, that's right, no warning, no funny not quite showing up every time you plug it in malarky, just nothing. That's it. It's dead. And your session, well, that's in the toilet now, isn't it? Of course you could send off your drive for physical data recovery, but that costs A LOT! You know what costs less? Answer: a Glyph PortaGig 62 hard drive. So, "what's so special about a PortaGig 62 hard drive?" you ask. Well, that's simple: it's not just a hard drive - it's two hard drives in one.
Sure you can setup your PortaGig 62 to act like a single big hard drive (that's called spanning) or as an ultra-fast hard drive (RAID 0), but for those super-mega-important jobs, you'll want to set it up to record onto both drives. That way, if (and it's really not likely) one of the PortaGig 62's drives takes a dive, the other one's got all the info one it too. No data gets lost, and your session's safe. And since the Glyph PortaGig 62's got FireWire 800, USB 2.0, and eSATA connections on it, you'll be able to use it with just about any computer. And what's even cooler still is that the PortaGig 62 is still so small, you can stick it in your laptop bag or whatever and barely notice it's there. How about that.
