Backing up your computer is usually an afterthought, only happening once it crashes and you finally realize the necessity of it. And when you finally do get into the habit, there’s always the off chance your back-up drive could die on you. However, luckily, if LaCie sets the trend with its new CloudBox hybrid drive—simultaneously allowing you to back up both locally and onto a cloud—then there’s little room for error.

Retailing for $200 and available next month, LaCie’s CloudBox comes with a one-year subscription for cloud backups and encrypts your files when uploading to the cloud so not even LaCie can access your files. For a breakdown, peep the video above.
