The Internals




The big selling point for the ioSafe Solo is the fire and water protection and it starts with two large pieces of fire retardant material. To the naked eye it looks a lot like ceramic but ioSafe calls it DataCast endothermic insulation.




Once the two halves are split we can start to see what exactly is going on with the Solo. Starting at the front, we see two channels that are cut into the insulation that provide airflow to the HDD chamber. The next thing we notice is the drive itself.




The drive is wrapped in a protective cover that acts as an additional heat shield and keeps water away from the drive. Here we see where the bag closes and the putty like substance that keeps the drive dry.




When it comes to accessories the Solo has everything included that you need to install the drive into your system.
