Will My LaCie Rugged BOSS SSD Ingest Every File from My Devices?

The LaCie Rugged BOSS SSD will attempt to copy all usable files from a device it is ingesting.  There are certain files and folders that the Rugged BOSS SSD will skip to keep an ingest from failing, or to reduce unneeded files and folders.

Files that are skipped by Rugged BOSS SSD:

  • Hidden files - File and folders marked as hidden either by the user or an Operating System.
  • Bad names - Files and folders that have characters that are not supported by the file system of theRugged BOSS SSD.  For example, a file containing “:” being copied to your Rugged BOSS SSD which is formatted exFAT.
  • Files or folders that contain the following: .meta, .system, *Recycle.bin, *RECYCLE.BIN, *recycle.bin, config.msi, System Volume Information, *.ds_store, *.tmp, *.temp, *desktop.ini, *.dropbox, *-journal, *thumbs.db
