Who says backup drives have to look dull? Freecom clearly doesn’t think so, if this pale pink drive is anything to go by.

In fact, the exterior is functional as well as pretty: it’s made of silicon and is designed to protect files you archive to the ToughDrive from knock and jolts, withstanding drops from as much as two metres. There’s also an internal anti-shock mechanism to prevent data loss.

The Freecom ToughDrive costs £117 inc VAT for 160GB version; £133 inc VAT for 250GB version. For full details see www.freecom.com.
