The Smallest Member of the Rugged Family
With its iconic orange design and secure form factor, the Rugged has been one of our 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.



Maximum Reliability
The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with our popular Rugged Hard Disk, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But with the Rugged Mini, we've gone a step further: 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. You can transfer a 700MB video file in less than 7 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0.* Additionally, you can use the LaCie Mac® USB 3.0 Driver to improve data transfer speed on your Mac (up to a 30% performance increase compared to FireWire 800).


LaCie Private-Public
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.

Solid drive, 2011-10-30
By Moonty 
I travel a lot. After each trip I have tons of photos, which I have to transfer and archive somehow. I bought this drive as an extension to my laptop, which has been running low on the storage space. The drive is really solid. The aluminum casing is covered with orange colored rubber bumper. The device works great. This is a perfect solution for me.

Reliable and very cool, 2011-09-30
By The Iron Horse 
I've bough this portable hard drive relatively recently. I use it for different projects at college and to exchange videos, music and photos with friends. This particular model was chosen because of its shockproof design and portability. 500GB is more than enough for me. The design is very cool. By default the rubber part is orange but you can buy additional rubber bumpers of other colors. The performance has been very good so far. I love that I can password protect the drive. The setup was very easy. Truly plug-and-play. I'm very glad I bought this one.

Great for on the go backup, 2012-11-05
By Rowen L. 
I bought this drive for backup when I travel. While it's small in size, it does everything that I need. Fast transfer speeds and the data encryption lets me rest knowing my data is safe if someone else gets their hands on my drive. It's also nice to know that the drive can take a few knocks and drops thanks to its rugged design!

Great Drive, 2012-11-26
By LouiseE 
I bought one of these to use mostly with my media player. I copied all my videos and music to it and now I can play them back on my TV. The drive's nice and fast, so it didn't take long at all! When I travel I take it with me, and it seems to be pretty rugged.

Portable and powerful, 2013-01-11
By bholman 
I got this drive for Christmas. It turned out to be a very practical present. The design is really cool, I love orange, and the drive seems to be tough and looks very secure. So far it has been working amazingly well.

A Quality Drive!, 2013-01-25
By SCherry 
I've had this drive for a while now - bought it especially for USB 3.0 speeds. It's brilliant, so fast and reliable! I use it for backups, though I don't use any special software, it's easy to just drag and drop. It's a real plug-and-play unit, works perfectly.

Great deal, 2013-03-17
By kyazzie 
Setting up this drive took me only a couple of moments. The USB 3.0 is wonderful and fast and the entire unit is light. I was sick of boring external drives so I love the design of this one and it's even better knowing that it's water resistant for those inevitable accidents.

Well designed, 2013-03-26
By LMallory 
I'm a lecturer in film and new media and I usually carry around a hard drive in my bag for all sorts of eventualities in my day. This drive fits my needs perfectly. It's rugged, fast, and so far it has been working seamlessly.

Very good, 2013-04-24
By rlam 
This is a seriously tough and efficient unit. It's very well designed, and it works like a charm. The speeds are excellent. I bought it mainly for travel, but now I use it just about every day for backups and file transfers - it's very handy!

Works great!, 2013-05-01
By RM 
This drive was very easy to connect and setup. I've setup a secure partition for my private documents, password protected and encrypted, so even if I misplace the drive, my data will be safe. The drive doesn't get hot even if working for long hours, and it doesn't need an external power supply.
