Steve here, and I have a warning for you.
Hard drives crash every single day - it’s a fact of life.
I did a little research and...
Roughly 170,000 hard drives die each and every day.
Oh, and those drives are ALL under 4 years old!
After 4 years, hard drive failure rates REALLY get bad.
The thing is, it doesn’t have to be a big deal when it does happen - as long as you have a backup.
I can tell you that I’ve personally experienced more than my share of HD failures, but it’s never really much more than a nuisance - BECAUSE I ALWAYS HAVE A GOOD BACKUP!!
It a sad story about lost, irreplaceable family photos. A story about lost documents that represent days and weeks of labor. A story of lost spreadsheets, resumes, books, music, websites, passwords, videos - need I go on?
If your hard drive crashes, you won’t be able to get those files back. If you’re OK with that, then stop reading now. Otherwise...
We have the solution and it’s what I currently use on MY OWN PC - and I hope you’ll try it too.
It’s the Lexar ECHO 8GB USB Flashdrive and it makes backing up completely automatic, completely painless, and completely... Simple.
Just plug it in and run the included software.
Easy setup without the long, confusing steps. All you do is plug it in and pick what you need to backup!
Or let the software do it automatically.
Could it BE any easier?
The first time you pop it in, it lets you choose automatic backup or specify the folders and files you want to backup (you can go back and make changes at any time).
That's all there is to it! Your files are backed up and you're safe from disaster!
However, don’t mistake easy to use for simple - this thing is LOADED!
Once you do your initial backup, this allows you to only backup files that have been changed or added. This will make your backup sessions MUCH faster since the software doesn’t have to recopy all the files that it has already backed up each time. Pretty sweet.
You are gonna LOVE this! Have you ever made changes to a file and only later - after you’ve saved it - realize your mistake?
That’s a sick feeling isn’t it?
This keeps separate versions of your files each time you make a change, so you can actually go back in time to a previous version before your mistake! How amazing is that?
As long as the drive is plugged in, it’s working in the background watching for new and changed files. When it sees one, it backs it up AUTOMATICALLY. No silly manual backups or schedules - just do your thing, let the flash drive backup your data.
And that's not all!
Heck you can even make multiple backup jobs!
If disaster strikes - or you just accidentally delete a file - restoring is as simple as plugging the drive back in.
You’ll find it’s organized just like your computer was before the crash, making it almost too easy to restore you files!
Of course, you can also use this as a regular high speed USB 2.0 flash drive too. In fact, since you're backing up your files with it, the files you want to transport are probably already on it!
What if it falls into the wrong hands?
No worries - you can choose to encrypt and password protect your data! Feel free to store all your confidential information on it - from tax records to legal documents - it’s all safe and secure when you enable encryption!
Oh - and if you have any questions once you get it, give us a call or drop us a line, we’re always here for ya!
Oh - almost forgot! I wanted to mention it’s tiny little size - about the size of your thumbnail. You’ll love not having some big honking’ stick hanging out of your computer!
Plus, we have a killer deal on it too - the lowest we've ever offered in fact. Just $8.97! Plus, with our 60 day satisfaction guarantee you just can’t go wrong!
Please give this a try - you’ll be impressed, I promise:
PS - Again, this is the system I use for backing up my computers and it’s been FLAWLESS (and has already saved me a time or two). It’s easy, fast, and just plain WORKS!
