"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

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.

Nice solid drive, 2014-03-18
By The Great Compromiser 
External drives get swapped quite a bit in our circle of friends, so it's a solid plus for me to be able to keep some files encrypted using the Private–Public software that came with this drive. This way, files that need to remain private stay that ...

Great Rugged Drive, 2014-02-18
By lteBeeltr 
Returning from the field, I left my Rugged Mini on the car's roof, and it fell off somewhere between the work site and home. I thought it was lost forever, but driving slowly back to the site the next morning, the unit's orange sleeve gave it away. ...

Great product, 2014-01-04
By B.H. 
I've been using two of these for on the go backups. They are small, don't take my space and they are very fast and reliable. Don't seem to heat up much, either, which is a bonus for me.

I'm an amateur travel photographer and I need reliable, and sturdy portable storage to backup my laptop on the road. I used to carry around a few smaller drives, but recently upgraded my collection with three of these rugged units. They are brillian...

Does the job, 2013-09-01
By T.C. 
This is a very nice portable drive - rugged, fast, reliable. The setup was painless. All I had to do was to plug it to the port and it was working. The drive doesn't heat up much during operation, and is very quiet. The speeds are great. I'd recomme...

Fast, durable, and easy to use!, 2013-07-16
By amolina 
This drive is the perfect size physically and in terms of capacity. It fits nicely in my laptop bag. It's also pretty tough. Tough enough to survive everyday bumps and knocks. I take it everywhere with me, and it's been working very well.

so far so good, 2013-07-01
By Davin 
I was looking for a portable and reliable device to go with my laptop, and the Rugged Mini far exceeded my expectations. It's light, compact, and incredibly sturdy. The rubber bumpers mean it's not scratching anything in my bag either. This is a gre...

Great mobile drive, 2013-04-30
By JF 
I bought this drive a couple of months ago. I use it mainly for on the go backups, and for my media archive. I love the rugged design, and the bright orange color. The drive is fast and has loads of space for my music library..

This is such a fun little drive, I love it! The color is cheerful bright orange and it's convenient for travel or even carrying data from home to the office. Works great, both with the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connections.
