Sandberg Fingerprint Hard Disk Box review
Sandberg’s latest sees a fingerprint reader on a 2.5in SATA hard disk enclosure. With client-side software you can create an encrypted partition, accessed only with an authorised finger-swipe (or password). The software is stored on the drive, so it’s easy to install on any PC. There’s a push-button for backups with the bundled PCClone EX software; your backup is saved by default to a hidden folder on the drive for extra security. So the Sandberg offers extra layers of protection over conventional external hard disks, but before you buy consider the Lenovo Portable Secure Hard Drive with its integrated PIN keypad.
