If you need fast, basic network storage and backup/restore capability, the Ximeta NetDisk Portable is a good bet. If you also want media server capabilities, look elsewhere.

Acronis, Inc. announced that Klegg Electronics (formly NetDisk) has begun shipping Acronis True Image Home OEM Version disaster recovery software with its Klegg NetDisk network storage devices.
NetDisk utilizes Ximeta's patented Network Direct Attached Storage (NDAS) technology to provide a high performing, easy to use, secure and versatile storage solution.

Klegg NetDisk adds instant, high-speed storage to a Local Area Network (LAN) via an Ethernet connection, without the need for complicated network configurations. It can also be connected directly to a PC or laptop via a USB connection for a convenient storage solution. The additional storage appears as a local drive and users simply drag and drop files between their PCs or laptops and Klegg NetDisk has begun shipping Acronis True Image Home OEM Version disaster recovery software with its Klegg NetDisk network storage devices.

Acronis True Image allows users to back up their entire computers by creating an image archive of their data, operating system and applications. Should a system crash occur, a user need only to put the Acronis Bootable Rescue Media CD into the computer and initiate restoration of an image archive from the Klegg NetDisk. The restore process can be completed in a matter of minutes, not hours or days.

In addition to not requiring an IP address, the NetDisk allows backup or expansion through software features that permit Raid 1 or Raid 0 backup, aggregation and mirroring. Combined with industry leading backup software, a unique hardware identification and access keycode utility that allows specific user(s) read and write authority, the NetDisk provides complete network security.

On the down side, NetDisk did not allow us to get a 160 Gig partition back upon a drive crash. We only got back 111 Gig instead. Loosing 39. Netdisk also adds 30-45 seconds to my boot time, even running such programs as Eboostr and Process Tamer (which speed up XP) .

Also further reading indicated that if you shut down this drive early (before XP shut's down completely) will cause a scrambled partition and/or directory. The manufacturers solution to restore the drive, was to re-format the drive. I read this from a posting on Netdisk's Forum's (before Klegg's buy-out).

Why would I want to format a backup media ???

To loose all your data ???

Apparently users using the Netdisk driver 2.30.1 had problems with multi-users reading/writing to the disk at the same time. This seems to be fixed in the newest driver version 3.2.1.

Bottom Line : I would not buy this drive. There are noticeable I/O delay's when copying large files , and there seems to be no good recovery programs to support this drive in case of drive failure. We tested many software packages (no recovery software came with our drive), to find each one fail after a whooping 8 hours (the longest).

Even Fix-It Utilities which had a perfect track record, failed to recover any software. This is the 1st time in 4 years I have seen this utility fail.

We found other problems in our research as well ...
  • Interfere with Wireless Cards
  • Firewall issues with Router
  • Anti Virus issues
  • Software not installing correctly
  • Computer "Hangs" on boot or drive access
Although we did not experience any of these problems, where were many mentions to them in the Forum's we read (and we read many). According to Netdisk installing the newest driver (below) should solve some/all of these problems.

I have included some useful links below
