iTwin gadget makes it easy to transfer files remotely from PC to PC
Today I came across a description of an interesting gadget, which looks like a flash drive, called iTwin. And not for nothing it got this name, because to work with iTwin you need to use two devices simultaneously (they are sold in pairs). For a quick understanding of the principle of the device, the developers propose to imagine that iTwin, installed on two different PCs, as if to combine both devices, however remote from each other, into a network. First, you have to insert the device into one PC, install the software contained on the iTwin, and copy or move the files you want to transfer to the other PC into the device’s folder. As soon as you insert the paired iTwin device into the other PC, the files copied or moved to the first iTwin will appear in the device folder on the other PC. In general, you get a kind of hardware Dropbox, the analogy is not quite complete, but it helps to understand what iTwin is for.
iTwin works over the Internet, and can connect two Windows PCs into a single network, as mentioned above. You can copy, delete, edit any files on one PC from the other. It’s also very easy to transfer files from one PC to another, for example, by sending photos from a vacation while you’re in a hotel to your home computer. Of course, if you do not have a particularly "wide" channel, it may take a long time to transfer large files.

Interestingly, the transmitted data is protected by 256-bit AES encryption. This feature allows manufacturers to claim that iTwin can be used by the military, bank officials and representatives of other spheres where reliable information protection is required. In addition, you can also set a password that must be entered each time the iTwin is connected.

A connected iTwin prevents the computer from going into hibernation mode. Interestingly, the device continues to function if the user has locked their PC, and the port used by the device is the same as the one used by the browser, so there should be no problem with firewalls. The connected device appears on the PC as a system folder, not as a USB flash, so here we have another Dropbox analogy.
