Lexar Media, Inc. is introducing its new ExpressCard SSD with auto-backup software. Roughly half the size of current PC Card solutions, the Lexar ExpressCard SSD is a high-capacity removable solid state drive (SSD) that promises bring down costs of storage expansion to notebook computers.
The Lexar ExpressCard SSD comes bundled with auto-backup software, a solution for protecting laptop computer files and data that allows for automatic regular (daily, weekly, or monthly) backup without user intervention after the initial setup. During this setup, the user will be able to set the folder and specific file types to be included or excluded from the backup process. In addition, this automatic backup software can also support multiple computers by recognizing the computer name and the appropriate backup setting for each computer.
The Lexar ExpressCard SSD is also compatible with Windows Vista and it is enhanced for use with ReadyBoost, a Windows Vista feature that improves system performance without having to add DRAM to your computer. The ExpressCard SSD serves as an additional memory cache, which is a reserve section of memory that the computer can access faster than if it were accessing data from the hard disk drive.
The Lexar ExpressCard SSD is shipping in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities.
