Shockproof and safe

Narrow, portable hard drive in a patented, shock-resistant enclosure. The housing, which complies with US military standards, protects the hard disk from impacts and passes the crash test in free fall.

Predictive Breakdown

“Predictive Breakdown Function” keeps track of the health status of the hard disk using S.M.A.R.T. information and notifies the user with LEDs when its health is deteriorating.


Buffalo’s Lock and Go feature, which allows PC and Mac users to quickly and easily password protect their data. The MiniStation™ Safe remains locked until the correct password is entered again – wherever you use your hard drive!

USB Connector Protection
