THE ANTI-DISASTER DRIVE

Some individuals and businesses transfer their files to a remote storage location as a precaution against fire or flood destroying their computer and its contents. But some would also like to have their files and programs available right away if they only had a hard drive that could survive the fire or flood.

We found one. It’s the “Sentry Safe” 250 gigabyte drive, which we found for $370 on a web search. It’s not cheap as drive prices go but it is tough. It can withstand 40 minutes of direct heat as high as 1550 degrees Fahrenheit (843 degrees Celsius), or being completely submerged for up to 24 hours.
