This sleek USB thumb drive from Sony features ultra-high-speed data transfer (up to 60MB per second) when you use it with a USB 3.0-compatible computer. Of course, it's backward-compatible with USB 2.0, too. You can retract the connector into its silvery metal body when it's time to pop the drive into your pocket and hit the road. Free downloadable software lets you encrypt your data for better security, and you can also download a program that helps you recover lost or damaged files.

Features

Overview: The Sony Micro Vault Mach USB Flash Drive (USM-Q series) makes backing up your data quick & easy. Simply plug the Micro Vault into your computer's USB port, then drag and drop the data you want to save. The USM-Q series flash drives have a durable, high-quality hairline metal body finish. It has a spring-loaded retractable mechanism, just like a ballpoint pen. The one-piece design means you don't have to worry about losing the cap.

Super Speed USB 3.0: The Micro Vault Mach is compatible with Super Speed USB (USB 3.0), with data transfer speeds of up to 60 MB/s. USB 3.0 devices use two-channel data transfer, providing faster transfer speeds that save time when transferring high definition movie files and photos. If your PC does not support a USB 3.0 interface, the flash drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 with transfer speeds of up to 30 MB/s.

LED Indicator: When the data transfer is in progress, the easy-to-read LED indicator illuminates. It is visible from all angles, so you can easily check the status of the data transfer. The indicator turns on only during the data access and remains off when there is no activity.

USB Port: The Sony Micro Vault Mach employs a male USB (Type-A) connector which will plug directly into female USB (Type-A) ports of your computer. The inner side of a USB 3.0 port is blue. The Micro Vault Mach can be used with computers with USB 2.0 ports, but with slower transfer speed.

Free Software: The Sony Micro Vault USB Flash Drive includes free EasyLock software, which offers an easy way to secure your files by using strong, military-grade 256-bit AES encryption. Downloadable File Rescue software helps recover data, photos and videos that have been accidentally damaged or deleted. x-Pict Story software is also downloadable, and can be used for creating customized slideshows of your images.

Compatible Operating Systems: The Sony Micro Vault Mach USB Flash Drive and free downloadable software are compatible with the following Windows and Mac operating systems:

  • Windows:
    • Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate, and Starter
    • Windows Vista Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, Ultimate, and Starter
    • Windows XP Professional and Home Edition (SP3 or higher)
  • Mac:
