Deluxe Backup Kit


Our Deluxe Backup Kit is perfect for mobile professionals and power users who frequently share large files between different locations, need multiple duplications for further usage, and or just need space capacity! The Deluxe Backup Kit includes a DataTale 4-Bay SMART RAID System and a DataTale Portable 3.5-inch HDD Enclosure. With this Backup Kit, one is able to backup with speed and operate while traveling under JBOD, Mirror, or Clone modes.

Under JBOD mode: with the SmartGuider*, either hard drive in the 4-Bay SMART RAID System can be easily taken out and directly inserted into a Portable Enclosure for travel. Each hard drive inside the Portable Enclosure can be modified and put back into the 4-Bay SMART RAID System to support the host computer as an individual hard drive.
*Taiwan New Design Patent # M354309

Under Mirror mode: with the SmartGuider and a Portable Enclosure, files stored in the 4-Bay SMART RAID System in the office can be easily brought home for protection and further revision or vice versa. It is convenient for professionals who frequently share huge files between different locations or prefer to keep valuable files at different locations for security reasons.

Under Clone mode: after working on the extracted hard drive from the RAID MASTER using the Portable at home, the revised version can be Cloned onto 3 other hard drives for client or other team member access! No need to worry about downloading or copying files onto other computers!
