PopDrive backs up your backup, gets your hard drive poppin'


A hard drive that backs up your hard drive isn't exactly a groundbreaking concept, but a mirror drive that goes pop? Now, that's something special. PopDrive, weighing in at just over a pound and measuring a touch larger than a wireless mouse, uses two stacked laptop hard drives, encased in an aluminum shell, to guarantee that your backed up data stays that way. So where does the pop come in? Well, if one of these little hard drives crashes, you just pop in a new one like you would a CD. It does RAID-0, RAID-1, JBOD, and connects via eSata. We still haven't seen a price on it, but the company's website suggests that it won't take too much to get this thing poppin'. PopDrive will announce pricing and availability at CES later this week.
