Both moms and tech geeks are sure to love this product line. It’s called Clickfree, and automates the nightmare of backing up all your digital content – photos, artwork, music, documents, and much more. Now, with Clickfree, there isn’t any excuse for not backing up your precious content. The product is so simple to use, you literally just plug in the USB cable or insert the DVD. That’s it.
Today, 85% of the population does no back up at all (DeLoitte & Touche, 2007). If you’re part of that 85%, and have ever lost all your photos or personal documents when your computer hard drive crashed, you know how heart-breaking that can be. Anyone who has digital “stuff,” such as photos, scrapbooking collages, and web designs, you can’t afford to neglect backing up your data.
Traditionally an extremely tedious and complicated process, backing up your PC is easy as using a toaster when you have Clickfree. In fact, your microwave is probably more complicated! Clickfree has evolved traditional storage technology applications into a modern-day solution that makes saving digital content as easy as plug and play. Clickfree devices are designed to automatically start, search, organize and backup your computer’s digital files.
The Clickfree External Hard Drives can automatically back up more than 400 software applications. All Word files, PowerPoint, email files, attachments within emails, photos, movies, music files. It even finds preferences, favorite websites and browser lists. A wallet-friendly price tag and record-breaking transfer speeds easily thrust the Clickfree into our list of must have computer gadgets.
The default action is backing up your entire computer hard drive, with the exception of the obvious things like Windows system folders and cache folders. The software searches the entire hard drive, all partitions, for file extensions, and will copy them to the Clickfree device. All original folder structures will be maintained on the Clickfree backup to find your files easily in the future. It also overwrites new versions of files, but leaves anything that you’ve deleted from your local hard drive, which makes it easy to find that long lost client’s work when she asks you for business cards after not returning your phone calls for a year.
Once the backup is complete, a Backup Summary screen will show you how many new files were backed up, the total number of files backed up to-date, the amount of space used in total and the last time you backed up. To simplify the task of finding your data, backed up files are listed by category: photos, music, email, text docs, spreadsheets, presentations, artwork and drawings, video, favorite websites and others.
The hard drive based units are capable of backing up multiple computers with one device. Now you can back up your whole home with one Clickfree hard drive backup. Since no software is installed on the PC being backed up, the Clickfree hard drive will automatically launch on any PC you plug it into. You can restore your files, view your content, or backup another computer. The best part: it’s both cross version and cross platform compatible – meaning, it works on Windows XP, Vista, and Mac Os X. This also means you can backup data from Windows and restore to a Mac, or vice versa.
Clickfree DVDs are perfect for single use scenarios where data needs to be backed up for archival purposes. The incorporated backup application and DVD burning software make the entire backup process a breeze. The Clickfree Photo DVD automatically searches for and backs up more than 70 different photo formats out of the box, including JPEG, RAW and all popular photo file formats. The Clickfree Music DVD automatically searches for and backs up music files; all popular formats are covered. Ditto with Office and its file formats.
Clickfree products can be found at leading retail outlets across the U.S., including Best Buy, Wal-Mart and Walgreen’s. They can also be purchased online from Amazon.com or direct from Storage Appliance Corporation (www.goclickfree.com).
