|Lexar Media Inc. introduces the Lexar Echo ZE 32GB USB 2.0 Backup Drive LEHZE32GASBNA which is designed for netbooks and notebooks. It is nano sized, just like the microSD reader and 802.11n adapter. Lexar Echo ZE is a tactful ultra-compact USB flash drive that can be used not only to store and transfer files but also as a back up media. Barely bigger than a USB connector, it measures only 2.01 x 1.51 x 0.76 cm without the cap and 2.3 x 1.51 x 0.76 cm with its cap on. It features a plug-and-stay back up solution which allows one to plug “permanently” on your computer. Lexar Echo’s software which is built around Dmailer is capable of maintaining system backups and along with suitable OS support, it can even backup open files while working on them at the same time. Likewise, built into the software are timed backups and messianic file versioning.
It comes in a low profile design allowing an easy plug into the system’s USB port for continuous, automatic backup of essential files in a handy, trustworthy and flash-based design. It permits one to easily identify plans for backup indicating the type of files to maintain like text documents, spreadsheets, photos, and many more. Also, the location of files can easily be determined. Backups can likewise be encrypted by way of an AES 128-bit to make it inaccessible without a password. The program can save multiple versions of a file. The default has three versions but one can have as much as up to ten if the setting is changed. It also provides filtering options like by date or size. While Lexar does not indicate the transfer speed both in reading and writing, its maximum speed is said to be at 20.25 MB / s read speed and 11.41 MB / s write which were obtained with DivX 700 MB. The drive is formatted in FAT32 making it compatible with Macs and PCs.
