Overview

The Kingston DataTraveler 400 USB drives come in three sizes: 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB with transfer rates of 20mb/sec read and 10mb/sec write. The DT 400 also comes with preloaded MigoSync and SecureTraveler software. The MigoSync software allows you to synchronize data, email & internet settings between multiple PCs. The SecureTraveler software allows you to set a public and private partition of the drive. We'll cover this more later. The DataTraveler 400 is slightly smaller than most standard flash drives measuring 2.58" x 0.71" x 0.41". We matched the drive up with the DataTraveler Secure drive in the image below.


The outer part of the drive is composed of a thin metal material which helps cover and protect the flash drive. The DataTraveler 400 label and the capacity of the drive 2GB, is labeled on the front side of the drive while the Kingston Technology logo remains on the backside.



The drive can rotate 360 degrees from the outside cover so that it can be used. There are also two tiny holes at the end of this cover so that the keychain ring can be attached to the device.


Installation

To use the drive without the software it's just plug and play. To install the included software is just as easy. The two programs that need to be installed on your computer are the SecureTraveler and MigoSync software. You want to run the SecureTraveler software first because it requires you to format the drive to partition it into public and private. This process is very easy, just open up the SecureTraveler software, fill out the information and select your privacy zone size. To access the private area after this you must open up the SecureTraveler software and enter your password.


Also included with the software is the MigoSync software which, like I said before, allows you to sync your emails and internet settings between computers. To start open up the MigoSync software on the drive; you will be prompted with a screen that will allow you to select if you want your browser settings to by synced. The next screen will ask about email programs to sync.


The next screen will let you pick which email folders you want to sync. The next screen will allow you to pick which files on your computer you would like to sync as well. After these steps you can let the MigoSync software sync the data.


A little Migo icon will be on your desktop every time that you open up the software. This will allow you sync your data and from which computers.
