Samsung Portable SSD T1 Performance

The drive comes ready to plug in and use, but you can also use the software which is on the drive to enhance the functionality, change the name of the device or setup a password for secure data encryption. If password encryption is enabled you need to enter the password in the Samsung software (on the drive) before you can access the data.
