SanDisk FlashBack Adapter

Memory maker SanDisk has announced the FlashBack Adapter, a new storage add-on for notebooks. The device plugs into a notebook's ExpressCard slot, and automatically backs up key files on a computer using special Windows software. A key difference with alternatives is that the FlashBack utilizes SD or SDHC cards, for a maximum storage capacity of 32GB. Neither cards nor the adapter protrude when inserted.

The software is compatible with Windows 2000, XP or Vista systems, and is set to archive files continuously, whenever changes are made to them or they are added or deleted. Archives are automatically encrypted, and restoration can be done on any PC with an appropriate SD reader. The FlashBack should begin shipping in the second quarter for $30, not including a memory card.
