Chapter 2 Jupiter Cipher ExDrive key

Check to make sure you have the correct version of Jupiter Cipher ExDrive key. The key should match the label at the bottom of the drive enclosure.

Yellow label DES-64stands for Jupiter Cipher ExDrive64-bitkey

Green label TDES-128stands for Jupiter Cipher ExDrive 128bit key

Red label TDES-192stands for Jupiter Cipher ExDrive 192bit key

IMPORTANT

There is no back door for the Jupiter Cipher ExDrive encrypted hard drive if the key is lost or stolen.

To ensure that there is a spare key, your Jupiter Cipher ExDrive bundled kit comes with one pair of Jupiter Cipher ExDrive keys. These 2 keys have identical encryption code. One of these keys should be kept in a safe and secure location and can be sent back to Addonics for duplicating additional keys. If you are down to the last key, be sure to make a back up of all the data stored inside your encrypted hard drive prior to sending the last key to Addonics. Addonics is not responsible for key lost in the mail or retrieval of the data inside the encrypted hard drive.

ØThe CIPHER key MUST be inserted at the front of the drive enclosure in order for the drive to be ACTIVATED.

ØOnce the drive is INITIALIZED using the Cipher Key that comes with the kit, the drive can only be accessed by the original key.

ØThe 2 keys that come with each Jupiter Cipher ExDrive bundled kit has their own unique encryption code. So the keys among different kits are not interchangeable.

If you have multiple sets of Jupiter Cipher ExDrive kits and would like all the keys to have the same encryption code, you may make this request at the time of your order or mail the keys together with master key back to Addonics to recode them for you. Again be sure that you keep a spare key with you. Make a back up of your data if you are mailing in your last key.

Chapter 3 Keeping track of the hard drive

If you are using the Jupiter Cipher ExDrive drive enclosure to encrypt multiple hard drives, it is important to label your hard drive if you are taking the drive out of the enclosure. The hard drive with Jupiter Cipher ExDrive encryption will look like a brand new drive when attach directly to the IDE or SATA controller of a computer. There will be no partition or any hint to indicate that the drive contains encrypted data. When the drive is partitioned, all the encrypted data will be lost.

The same holds true if a hard drive already has data on it is installed into the Jupiter Cipher ExDrive drive enclosure. The computer detects the hard drive as a brand new drive or a drive that is unallocated. Once you proceed to partition the drive, the data that was on the hard drive will be erased and cannot be recovered.

A Jupiter Cipher ExDrive encrypted hard drive can be moved to another Jupiter Cipher ExDrive drive enclosure. But the same key used in encrypting the hard drive must be used in the new drive enclosure in order to access the drive.

If you are installing multiple Jupiter Cipher ExDrive drive kits into a large organization, it is important to keep track of the drive and the encryption key. Once it gets mixed up, there is no possible way to recover the data on the encrypted hard drive.

Jumper settings inside the Jupiter Cipher ExDrive Drive Case

A.If the Jupiter Cipher ExDrive will be used externally with the external AC adapter, the switch from the case must be switch to the right, labeled EXT to grab power from external power supply.

Application: Jupiter Cipher ExDrive can be set to receive power EXT and be used with all three types of USIB cables.

B.If the Jupiter Cipher ExDrive will be used externally without the external AC adapter, the switch from the case must be switch to the left, labeled INT to grab power from system.

Application: Jupiter Cipher ExDrive can be set to receive power INT and be used with the following types of USIB cables: USB2.0 USIB & Firewire USIB

Note: We recommend setting the hard drive to MASTER mode/setting at all times. (Default setting)
