    The VAULT will supply up to 1.0 amp of power via USB so depends on the drive if it has enough power or not.

    During the backup, the VAULT will reformat the drive (as ext4 - so can't be read from Windows or Macs generally) and perform a backup. Encrypted drives are reformatted so encryption is lost (like the data that was previously on it).

    does the backup drive have to be 2TB? I have ripped over 110CDs and only used 34.3GB. Could I backup the CDs on the vault to a 64GB USB thumb drive?  Can the backup drive be understood by a linux laptop/dekstop (say ubuntu 16.04.5)

    Hi David

    It must be a USB drive at least 2TBs in size. Your music and peace of mind is worth it...
