Clickfree Launches Automated Backup Solution
Why on earth didn't I backup? Regret, frustration, anger runs through you as you look at a blank screen devoid of data. If you were to put a price tag (News - Alert) on lost data, it would run into a small fortune and the bigger the company, the worse it is.
ClickFree Wireless has stepped in for those who are just not in the habit of backing up. Launched in the U.S., this totally automated backup solution with a wireless connection can backup as many computers as the customer needs, both for Windows and Mac.
Clickfree's “effortless backup” is called so because it requires no downloads, no installation, no configuration of software and no prior knowledge of a wireless setup or network. All Clickfree users need to do is plug the Clickfree wireless device into each computer and perform an initial backup. The device automatically detects and configures the settings without personal intervention. Backups are then automated using 802.11n wireless technology.
Once that is done, the device no longer needs to be plugged into any of the computers and can be placed anywhere in the home. Digital data is safeguarded and backed up continuously and silently. Important documents, precious photos, rare music, amazing videos on the home or office network are protected and can be retrieved at will. Customers can also search and restore lost files and other digital content over the wireless connection.
In a press release, Bryan McLeod, CEO of Storage Appliance Corp said that setting up a wireless backup device was just as easy as plugging the device into the computer. He also added that with the proprietary Backuplink technology that made the once complex task of backing up digital content on a network totally effortless, the company has ensured that anyone could use the wireless backup device.
The Clickfree Wireless is the world's first backup product that backs up every PC and Mac without having to be plugged into the computers and is the perfect solution to protect all music and playlists of iPod, iPad or iPhone (News - Alert) users. Migrating from an old computer to a new Windows 7 or Mac is very easy. The device also enables users to easily backup and upload photos, music and other files to Facebook (News - Alert), e-mail them to family and friends or archive them onto a CD or DVD. The feature rich device comes with a 500 GB storage capacity.
On Jan. 6, Clickfree, launched Network and Ultra Portable Backup solutions at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show.
The Consumer Electronic Show, which runs Jan. 6-9 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, booth #36512 features Clickfree products.
