The Verbatim Store 'n' Save USB 3.0 desktop hard drive features high performance storage using a USB 3.0 'SuperSpeed' interface. USB 3.0 offers up to 10 times faster data transfer rates than USB 2.0 (based on USB bus speed) providing ultra fast data transfer on the go. Store 'n' Save can be placed flat or on its side to help create more space on your desktop. When you switch on Store 'n' Save the Verbatim Welcome screen will appear giving shortcuts to the software, user manuals, support information and the directory of your drive (dependent on PC OS running). USB 3.0 is 100% compatible with USB 2.0. The drive comes loaded with Nero Backup software that can help you schedule, compress and encrypt your backup and ensure that you never lose important files. Verbatim Hard Drives also come with Green Button energy saving software. Green Button software suspends the hard drive from spinning while not in use increasing efficiency and saving energy. There are 3 'Sleep Setting' options. Set the suspend mode to come in after 10 minutes of use, or by increments of 10 minutes up to 120 minutes. Set the drive to suspend immediately by double clicking the Green Button icon on the desktop, alternatively you can set the drive to 'Never Suspend the disk'.
