The Transporter is a device that allows people to back up their files off-site, on the hard drives of people in a trusted network
The Transporter device itself contains a standard hard drive – it’s available with either a 1TB or 2TB drive included, or without one if you have a drive of your own that you wish to use
The Transporter saves files in either encrypted "backup" folders or sharable "collaborative" folders

When it comes to backing up your files, there are generally two approaches ... you can put them on a physical device such as a hard drive, or you can upload them to the cloud. Hard drives can be lost or destroyed, however, while cloud-based services usually charge monthly fees for larger amounts of data – plus, not everyone feels comfortable trusting their files to faceless corporations. Well, that’s where the Transporter comes in. It allows you to store your files off-site, on the hard drives of people whom you know and trust.
