How to store more and worry less with the SanDisk® Desk Drive Desktop SSD

Video production isn’t just about capturing high-quality footage; it’s also about managing massive amounts of data. Globally, we create 328 million terabytes of data every day. As a creator, it’s your responsibility to safeguard this data and protect your investment. This means maintaining multiple copies in different locations. Archive and backup drives in the past were slow and struggled to keep up with the demands of an active project. Now, the SanDisk® Desk Drive Desktop SSD can help you streamline your storage management.

The challenge of data management

You’re likely familiar with the pain of slow transfers and cumbersome backups, which often involve juggling several external hard drives. This clutters your workspace but can also slow your workflow because of their limited speed. If the data is archived too soon, you’ll find yourself waiting for it to transfer back to a drive you can work off of. Integrating the SanDisk Desk Drive into your workflow could be transformative. This desktop SSD combines up to 4 TB or 8 TB of storage capacity* and read speeds up to 1,000 MB/s** — that’s four times faster than a traditional desktop HDD1. For you, this means quicker file transfers, allowing you to manage large video files with unprecedented ease.

Designed for efficiency

The Desk Drive is designed with your needs in mind. Its compact size allows it to fit seamlessly on your desk and blend into any workspace. It is formatted with exFAT and comes ready out of the box for both Windows® and macOS. SanDisk designed it so you could plug in the drive and start transferring files within minutes, immediately simplifying your workflow.

The SanDisk Desk Drive looks to elevate your workflow. Its robust read and write capabilities make it an indispensable tool in video production. No matter if you’re backing up raw footage or pulling data for editing, the SSD handles  tasks efficiently and reliably

Backup and edit with confidence

With the SanDisk Desk Drive, you can maintain numerous backups of your projects, and using tools like Time Machine or Acronis® True ImageTM for Western Digital2, you can automate your backups as well. This helps ensure your data is secure without constant oversight. Moreover, the speed of the Desk Drive enables you to edit directly from the SSD. Forget the days of waiting for files to render or dealing with editing lag. The SSD’s rapid access times will allow you to focus more on creativity and less on processing times.

Peace of mind

Beyond its performance capabilities, the SanDisk Desk Drive also offers substantial reliability. Its three-year limited warranty3 provides peace of mind for creators who rely heavily on their storage solutions.

The SanDisk Desk Drive meets this growing demand and tries to make a new standard for what creators should expect from their storage devices. By investing in a tool that accelerates your workflow while providing robust data protection, you’re setting yourself up for future success, enabling that as your projects grow in scale and complexity, your storage capabilities can handle it with ease.
