Hard drive

A hard disk drive (HDD) is a data storage device used for storing and retrieving digital information using rapidly rotating discs (platters) coated with magnetic material. An HDD retains its data even when powered off. Data is read in a random-access manner, meaning individual blocks of data can be stored or retrieved in any order rather than just sequentially. An HDD consists of one or more rigid ("hard") rapidly rotating discs (platters) with magnetic heads arranged on a moving actuator arm to read and write data to the surfaces.

Ex. Gehäuse mit Tastenverschlüsselung (2.5", Black)

If you need to use an encrypted drive between platforms/systems, example, Mac and Windows, go for it!

The case works in the key areas.

Beware, 3 issues:
1) Password with repeating numbers seems unreliable, does not register properly. I recommend to have each consecutive password number be different from the previous number. You can use a number more than once, but avoid to repeat it.
2) No instructions on normal operation, how to unlock (there are instructions on how to create password and change password). The method: 1) plug in HD to USB 2) enter password 3) press unlock key.
3) Disk automatically ejects itself (turns on password) after 13 minutes). This is probably a good security feature. However if you are doing a long copy unattended, the Mac OS complains that the drive was not properly removed/ejected and this could cause an issue?

Test environment:
Macbook Pro 15, mid 2014, i7 2.5Ghz, 16GB ram, USB3
Mac mini, 2009, USB2

Hard drive installed in ICY BOX:
Samsung 850 EVO Basic 1 TB SSD
Formatted in ExFAT to share between Mac and Windows (formatted Mac Journaled, seems same results)

unreliable password function if repeat a number
it is possible small performance loss with encryption
