Lexar
Media, Inc. Has announced its new ExpressCard SSD with auto-backup software.
Roughly half the size of current PC Card solutions, the Lexar ExpressCard SSD
is a high-capacity removable solid state drive (SSD) that delivers high-performance,
lower-cost storage expansion to notebook computers. The Lexar ExpressCard SSD
comes bundled with auto-backup software, an innovative solution for protecting
laptop computer files and data that allows for automatic regular (daily, weekly,
or monthly) backup without user intervention after the initial setup. During
this setup, the user will be able to set the folder and specific file types
to be included or excluded from the backup process. In addition, this automatic
backup software can also support multiple computers by recognizing the computer
name and the appropriate backup setting for each computer.



The Lexar ExpressCard SSD is also ideal for use with Windows Vista as it is
enhanced for use with ReadyBoost, a Vista feature that improves your system
performance without having to add DRAM to your computer. The ExpressCard SSD
serves as an additional memory cache, which is a reserve section of memory that
the computer can access faster than if it were accessing data from the hard
disk drive. Additionally, the ExpressCard SSD interface supports a direct connection
to the chipset, allowing users to enjoy all of its extensive backup and ReadyBoost
capabilities without having to unplug the card after every use; users simply
keep their ExpressCard SSD in the slot as external storage.



The Lexar ExpressCard SSD is shipping in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities.

Those seeking secure memory cards will be interested in Lexar's LockTight
cards and reader. The system encrypts login access to the LockTight card, but
not the file data. This means that the full 80X speed of the card is available.
Lexar says that the card cannot be accessed on any camera other than an authorized
LockTight camera or any computer that lacks the LockTight access and a correct
username and password. The system is comprised of four components: the LockTight
CompactFlash card (512MB or 2GB); a Lexar Professional CompcatFlash reader;
a LockTight enable camera; and the LockTight Admin and Access software. The
system has been designed to have what the company calls "zero impact"
on production workflow and requires only one-screen access.
