Lexar Media Echo SE and ZE Drives Revealed Small Thumbdrives Let You Backup Notebook Data
your notebook's files while you're on the move. Enter the Lexar Media
Echo SE and ZE thumb drives. They're small portable thumb drives (barely
bigger than 1 centimeter) that help you back up your files on the go.
Once the thumb drive is plugged in to your notebook, software will
automatically take a daily image of whatever critical data you need and
export it to the thumb drive. If you have a hard drive failure, your
data is backed up to the thumb drive. Obviously, as far as backup
solutions go, it's about as on-site as it gets – but it'll pr
otect against hardware failures.
The SE models will come with 8GB, 16GB and 32GB, while the ZE models
will come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. No pricing yet for these – got
to wonder how much of a premium Lexar's backup software will add. The
United States will be getting these devices next month while Europe will
be getting them – just later on.
