Disclosure: I received product from iStorage in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.
When it comes to my daily life as a blogger I seem to accumulate a lot of images and files. Then there are the programs that I have the setup files for, and the list goes on and on. Twice in my business, my computer has died. The first time I wasn’t aware of how important it was to keep a back up of my files, so I lost everything and had to start all over again. Then the 2nd time I had been backing up right along so I felt I would be ok. Only to find out that my external back up was corrupted. It also didn’t help that it wasn’t compatible with my new computer I had to purchase.
When I was offered to review iStorage’s diskAshur² I was so excited. Why not have 2 external hard drives? It can’t hurt to be proactive this time around. It seems a computer life for an active blogger is 3 years. So the one I have now I am just not sure if it will last longer than the last one or not.

One of the unique and underlying security features of the GDPR compliant diskAshur2 is the dedicated hardware-based secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL4+ ready), which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms designed to defend against external tamper, bypass attacks and more. Unlike other solutions, the diskAshur2reacts to an automated attack by entering the deadlock frozen state, which renders all such attacks as useless.In plain and simple terms, without the PIN there’s no way in!-sited right from their website.
