Back in a Flash – computer backup and recovery via USB

Image

The Back in a Flash data recovery tool is a USB-based backup device housed in a USB key. When inserted into a PC it automatically backs up everything in My Documents (Mac version coming soon) and its subfolders to the Back in Flash drive.

Back in Flash isn’t a one-trick-pony however, you can also use it to boot a PC that is having OS issues. The drive comes with a pre-installed Linux-based Windows-esque OS that will allow you to open, edit and move your files off your dodgy PC until you can get it repaired. As an added bonus the Back in Flash also works as an ordinary flash drive.

The drives are available in 4, 8, 16 and 32Gb sizes so forget about backing up your media PC with it, but for everyday stuff on an everyday PC they sound brilliant. Sure it’s a simplified system and it’s not for everybody, but it is easy to use. Prices are US$49.95 for the 3.5Gb drive, all the way up to US$189.95 for the 32Gb version.

Back in a Flash is the revolutionary USB stick which automatically backs up your files daily, and can resuscitate your computer if it crashes. Not just restart it, but get you right back to work with software and your files. And it requires no installation or setup.
