The Smallest Member of the Rugged Family
With its iconic orange design and secure form factor, the Rugged has been one of LaCie's most popular hard drives. With the Rugged Mini, we've shrunk the Rugged, and added tons of new features, making it a solid investment for on-the-go data transport.
The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with the popular Rugged Hard Disk, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But with the Rugged Mini, it's also rain-resistant and pressure-resistant -- you can drive over it with a 1-ton car, and it still works! Its small size makes it perfect to take with you wherever you go and its Rugged exterior provides protection against accidental drops, shock, or pressure.
The Speed of USB 3.0
With the Rugged Mini, you've got the speed of USB 3.0, and full backward compatibility with USB 2.0, meaning that you can use it on almost any computer. Transfer a 700MB video file in less than 7 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0.*
*Transfer rates vary from one computer to another and may vary slightly from one drive to another.
The Rugged Mini doesn't just keep your data safe from external forces, it also protects against intrusion. With secure password protection software built-in, it's easy to make sure that your files are secure and protected, no matter where you go. You can even use access your password-protected files using any computer, ensuring complete data mobility and complete data safety.
User-friendly Software Suite Included
Easy setup and automatic worry-free backup for both PC and Mac computers.
With LaCie Private-Public software built in, it's easy to make sure that your files are secure and protected, no matter where you go.
40 per cent Energy Savings

Top Customer Reviews
As one of the drives contained the only remaining functional system image of her laptop, I broke the raw drive out of its container. The drive itself is fine, and I was able to get it running using the removable USB3.0 to SATA connector from a Seagate STBU1000100 portable drive plugged directly into the LaCie disk. (If you have a dead LaCie drive and don't mind voiding the warranty, this seems to be a good way to get your data back.)
Now we have an out-of-warranty drive of unusual height (12mm rather than the 9mm most 2.5" SATA drives have). I'm debating whether or not to get an external enclosure for it. I certainly don't trust the LaCie enclosures. I'm also debating whether or not it's worth doing the same for the other broken LaCie.
Avoid this drive. If you need a portable drive, the Seagate STBU1000100 1.0 TB is cheap, reliable, and the removable USB 3.0 interface makes for a handy bare-drive connector.
PRO: It is fast.
CON: 1. The customer service agent on the telephone I first contacted at LaCie was one of the most arrogant, rude individuals I have ever come across in this business. I will never buy another LaCie product for that reason alone. But if you do need to contact Customer Service at LaCie, I recommend using email - the tech support by email, in contradiction to the telephone service, is excellent.
2. The USB cord receiver connection on the drive is unique in it's construction, not like any other I have ever seen. It also becomes loose very easily and interrupts connectivity. While it is connected, if you try to move the cord a bit to get it out of the way, the input USB input connector on the drive can very easily fall out of the receiving connection - and it often does. I could try to open the flaps on the input connector, but I am afraid it might damage it. This problem has existed since the day it arrived here, but since my first telephone encounter with LaCie's customer service trying to set-up the drive was such a disaster I no longer want to deal with them - and I doubt if I could get a replacement cord anyways from such an outfit. I own a few other Toshiba external hard drives that are not as fast as this LaCie, but none of them have given me the grief LaCie has.
