LaCie Rugged Mini 4 TB

The Smallest Member of the Rugged Family

With its iconic orange design and data security, the Rugged has been one of our most popular hard drives. With the Rugged Mini drive, we’ve reduced the size and added tonnes of new features, making it perfect for on-the-go data transport.

Maximum Reliability

The LaCie Rugged Mini shares features with our popular Rugged drive, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But with the Rugged Mini drive, we’ve gone a step further: not only is it rain resistant, it’s also pressure resistant, so if you accidentally drive over it with a 1 tonne car, your files remain accessible.

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 800 MB video file in around 6 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0.

User-friendly Software Suite Included

Automatic Backup

Easy setup and automatic worry-free backup for both PC and Mac® computers.

Edit with Creative Cloud

Turn RAW footage into flawless productions with a one-month complimentary membership to Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps plan. (Must redeem within one year of drive registration. Not available in all countries.)
