Iomega Automatic Backup software will now be bundled with Toshiba’s removable 5GB PC Card hard drive â€“ offering laptop users a â€œset-and-forgetâ€ solution for backing up business/personal files.
â€œThis bundled solution provides users with an additional level of comfort when creating digital files at the office or on the go,â€ said Maciek Brzeski, vice president of marketing at Toshiba SDD. â€œToday’s computer users are constantly working with precious digital productions that can now be backed up and protected automatically.â€
Toshiba’s 1.8-inch removable PC Card drive slides into the Type II slot found on the sides of laptops, PDAs and other digital gear â€“ allowing users to share or save files between devices. With the addition of Iomega’s Automatic Backup software, critical data â€“ from business documents to home videos to digital scrapbooks â€“ can now be preserved automatically based on back up schedules set by the user, or simply on-the fly.
â€œThe beauty of Iomega Automatic Backup software is its flexible and convenient approach to file protection,â€ said Jet Martin, product general manager of Software Solutions, Iomega Corporation. â€œCombined with Toshiba’s portable hard disk drive, the hassles of data protection are removed. Users fall in love with Iomega Automatic Backup software the first time it prevents a data disaster, since it gives them peace of mind that their important files are safe.â€
With Iomega Automatic Backup software, users can designate a file, folder or entire drive for backup protection. Users simply set up the process one time, and then as files are changed and saved the software automatically backs up a copy to the Toshiba drive.
