This article presents information on the new Sony Micro Vault Universal Serial Bus 2.0, as of February 2004. The device doubles the storage space to 256 megabytes and reads data four times faster than its predecessors. It offers approximately the storage capacity of 170 floppy disks in a compact size, no larger than a car key, but as easy to use as floppies. It also offers a highly efficient password lock security function. Users of Windows 2000, Me and XP can easily create a password-protected area within the Micro Vault memory to protect personal data when the device is given to others or taken out of the usual working environment. It also runs with Mac 9.0 or higher.
