System Requirements
1. USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) or USB 3.0 (5 Gbps) interface support
USB (Universal Serial Bus) is a serial input/output interface standard for connecting various devices. USB
3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) and USB 3.0 (5 Gbps), collectively referred to as “USB 3”, support transfer speed of up to
10 times the speed of USB 2.0 (480 Mbps). T3’s data transfer speed is optimal with USB 3, and using lower
versions such as USB 2.0 and 1.1 may result in lower performances due to interface limitations.
* Performance may vary depending on each user’s system even when using USB 3.0 connections. T3 may
not perform well if UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) is not supported. Please make sure that the
system to which T3 is connected supports UASP.
2. Recommended Operating Systems for Using Security Software
 Windows OS: Windows 7 or higher
 Mac OS: Mac OS X 10.7 or higher
