Compact and lightweight
Pack light! The credit-card size ESD230C, with mere 9.6mm in height, fits perfectly in your wallet or purse, and takes up little space in your briefcase. The anti-scratch coating means the portable SSD will look sharp even after all the miles. With a reflective black case, you'll be both savvy and stylish.

In addition to desktop and laptop computers, the ESD230C can also be used with many other devices, such as on-the-go mobile devices and gaming consoles, providing ultra-fast transfer speeds and extra large capacity expansion.
Note: 1. Mobile devices must support USB OTG. Game console vendors may set out capacity requirements for external storage. Please check compatibility before purchase. 2. The ESD230C comes formatted in the exFAT file system. However, some mobile devices may require FAT32 only. Please format the ESD230C to FAT32 file system before use.

The ESD230C comes with both a USB Type-C cable and a USB Type-C to Type-A cable to accommodate desktops and laptops featuring the USB Type-C or USB 3.1 interface.

Powerful 256-bit AES encryption
Transcend’s ESD230C supports 256-bit AES encryption to securely and reliably protect data at the hardware level. AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is a cryptographic algorithm defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Encryption and decryption are processed strictly within the SSD controller and completely independent of any OS or program, making hardware-based AES impossible to decipher.
One touch to back up all files
The ESD230C is equipped with a convenient auto-backup button for instant data backup when used with Transcend Elite software.
