To put this in perspective, most fireplaces burn at only 700 to 800 degrees. ioSafe came to CNET to show off its new product’s ability to handle extreme heat and here are a few photos of its impressive and convincing demo: By the end of the demo, the hard drive survived with the original data stored on it still intact.
