Buffalo Tools is a feature-rich suite of optional software included on many Buffalo DriveStation and MiniStation storage products. Any or all of the following components of Buffalo Tools may be installed on Windows® PCs.
TurboPC: Designed for your Windows computer, TurboPC includes two components to enhance file transfer performance with external hard drives. Utilizing the high speed RAM of your PC, TurboPC can increase file transfers by up to 2x over standard external hard drive connections, including USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. TurboPC also includes TurboCopy which provides additional system adjustments to increase performance substantially.
Buffalo's Backup Utility: Easy-to-use and fully featured, Buffalo's Backup software for Windows PCs is simple to set up yet highly configurable for custom settings. Buffalo Backup protects your important files and documents by backing up to your Buffalo external hard drive. Buffalo Backup can be used to back up one or multiple computers with a single Buffalo external hard drive, and it includes a comprehensive restore function which makes restoring from backups extremely easy.
eco Manager: eco Manager is an environmentally friendly energy efficiency tool designed to conserve energy by regulating the power usage of your Buffalo external hard drive at predetermined times. It can be configured to put a hard drive to sleep after a specified period of drive inactivity, increasing the hard drive's life while reducing energy usage, including laptop battery consumption.
RAMDISK: RAMDISK is a simple utility that allows you to create a RAM disk on your Windows PC. The RAM in a PC is considerably faster than its hard drive, and by using spare PC RAM to create a RAM disk, you can give your computer a small but extremely fast environment to work on files in. When you have finished working on files from the RAM disk, simply save them to your PC's hard drive or an external hard drive for long-term retention. RAMDISK can be configured to automatically save the contents of the RAM disk to a hard drive during a Windows shutdown.
