LaCie Rugged™ Mini

The Smallest Member of the Rugged Family

With its iconic orange design and data security, the Rugged has been one of our most popular hard drives. With the Rugged Mini drive, we've reduced the size and added tons of new features, making it perfect for on-the-go data transport.

Maximum Reliability

The LaCie Rugged Mini shares features with our popular Rugged drive, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But with the Rugged Mini drive, we've gone a step further: not only is it rain resistant, it’s also pressure resistant, so if you accidentally drive over it with a 1-ton car, your files remain accessible.
