Gstor: hard drive with a built-in backup and more


Gstor’s hard drive looks pretty innovative, even if it came out in 2005. I’d never seen it until it was pointed out today over at TRFJ, along with a review from twelve months ago. While the drive looks pretty standard from the outside, it has quite a number of great features on the inside. It’s a standard 80 GB drive but includes integrated functionality to multi-boot, virus-protect, encrypt and better yet: backup and restore data in a number of modes like RAM Disk Mode and Live Disk Mode. Why bother with an external hard drive or a third party boot program?

The Gstor Plus includes all of the extra functionality on a an embedded single-chip controller made by ExcelStor. You can find out about all of the features and specs directly from Gstor.
