You can read more about TweakTown's Storage Product Testing Workstation and the procedures followed to test products in this article.




For testing we used the PhotoFast V5 solid state hard drive that was provided to us by, the leading supplier of solid state drives in the US. Here we see the Vantec NexStar Vault with the Private data opened. Until the extra area is opened via the hardware lock, the system does not see it. When opened the private area appears as another hard drive attached to the system.


Even if you remove the drive from the enclosure, the secure Private area is not accesssible.
