The USB connector, which is black, is not metal, but plastic.
When I plug in the Disk to my computer. It has following files and folder.
I have not heard it before. And I don’t want to try it, because I use Dropbox to backup and sync important files.
The application RunSanDiskSecureAccess_Win will install the secure software.
When I run it the first time. It will check the update. There is an update notice. Showing a new version of SanDiskAccess V3 is available.
