RDX removable disk storage media

Easy

RDX QuikStor combines the portability and reliability of tape-based backup with the speed and simplicity of a hard disk drive. Compact internal or external RDX drives accept pocket-sized RDX media. Your computer will recognize each cartridge and provide instant access and easy drag-and-drop control.

Fast

Write and read access is near-instant allowing users to work directly with the data on the media like one would with any other hard disk drive. With RDX capacities ranging from 320GB, 500GB, 1TB, 1.5TB to 2TB and RDX SSD media capacities ranging from 128GB, 256GB to 512GB, users have enough capacity to support a wide range of storage requirements, ensuring their data is fully protected.

Rugged

RDX drives are tough, and media is shockproof and rugged enough to last more than 10 years. Knocks and drops don't mean lost data. Plus valuable data can be further protected through Tandberg Data's RCE encryption software, ensuring complete peace of mind.

Portable

The RDX media is small and durable, so slip easily into a pocket for easy transport. They can be carried to another site for use by another computer or moved off-site for archiving.

Fixed Disk Mode for Windows Backup

RDX QuikStor provides a fixed disk mode and allows a seamless integration into windows-backup.* Windows-Backup of current operating systems does not support removable media any more. Users are constrained either to refrain from an operating system upgrade, or to use a third party backup software.

Complete backup with optional AccuGuard

RDX QuikStor removable disk system and AccuGuard SoftwareTandberg Data's AccuGuard is a powerful data protection software that delivers reliable, automated backup and recovery utilizing a data deduplication engine designed to increase effective storage capacity. AccuGuard increases effective data storage by providing 20:1 deduplication, intelligently optimizing the data at the source which results in drastically improved backup windows and network bandwidth. Data retrieval is simple and painless with AccuGuard's flexible file searching, drag-and-drop recovery and point-in-time restore.

* This functionality is only available with our USB 3.0 RDX drive.
