Conveniently carry and share even more high-capacity presentations, graphics, photos, music or e-mails with the award-winning Imation Micro Hard Drive. Imation Corp announced that the new 4 gigabyte (GB) drive is now available through Imation authorized distributors and retailers worldwide.

With a unique and stylish padlock design, the durable Imation Micro Hard Drive features a flexible USB connector that locks directly into the drive and can be easily used to clip the storage device to a belt loop, keychain or briefcase. The Imation Micro Hard Drive also encompasses the 2005 Guinness World Records book smallest hard disk drive, a Toshiba invention measuring less than one inch in diameter - smaller than the size of a quarter - but powerful enough to quickly and easily store 4GB of information.

This innovative design was recently recognized as a 2006 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards honoree and will be featured at the 2006 International CES Innovations Plus exhibit at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, booth #72444 on Jan. 5 through Jan. 8. The annual competition honors outstanding consumer electronic design and engineering in 30 different categories and acknowledged the Imation Micro Hard Drive in the "Computer Components" category.

Since the Imation Micro Hard Drive is compatible with PC, Mac and Linux operating systems, file sharing is a breeze. And the Imation Micro Hard Drive securely locks all files with 128-bit encryption, providing maximum file security and preventing unauthorized access. Imation Security Manager file synchronization software for Windows and Mac creates a backup copy of data and automatically synchronizes the copies to provide easier access to previous versions. A software upgrade featuring enhancements such as a streamlined user interface, which makes protecting and restoring files even easier, and modifications to make the device compatible with Mac OS X Tiger software will be available for both the 2GB and 4GB drives in early January 2006 athttp://www.imation.com/support.
