Thanks to Lexar Echo ZE's backup software functionality and its extremely easy-to-use interface, saving and protecting valuable data such as documents, presentations, photos, audio, and video files is no longer a tedious task. Restoring data is just a click away.
Its tiny profile makes the Lexar Echo ZE a plug-and-stay solution
Unlike traditional backup software, Lexar Echo backup software provides you with an option to store only new and modified files, thus reducing system overhead.
Define the number of versions you want to keep, preserving multiple iterations of a file for later use. At any moment, you can travel back in time to access a file's previous version, and you'll be prevented from losing any data, even if a file was inadvertently modified or erased.
Continuous, Automatic Protection
Leverage continuous data protection (CDP) technology to automatically detect changes to files and back them up onto the storage device without user intervention. You won't need to worry about manually backing up data or scheduling it; Echo backup software will take care of it for you 24/7.
Filter by file extension, date, or size. With numerous configuration options, Echo backup software provides a flexible tool that allows you to easily choose the data you wish to backup.
128-Bit Encryption for Safe Data
The Lexar Echo ZE offers optional 128-bit AES encryption for your backup data, so you'll really have peace of mind if you're working with sensitive data on the go.
Your data is seamlessly available whether you are using a Mac or a PC system. Echo backup software delivers the same powerful backup features and ease of use on both platforms for a consistent experience.
Reliable, Automatic Backup of Essential Files In Three Easy Steps

But design limitations aside, let's talk about performance. If it works well, I can live with the design limitations. So I tested it against my other flash drives (I'm running Windows 7).
Backup test - unencrypted (using the included software)
2.8GB, 8200 files
Echo ZE 8GB - 113 minutes
Echo SE 16GB - 16.5 minutes
OCZ Rally2 8GB - 17 minutes
Straight file copy, 1.3GB, 4800 files:
Echo ZE 8GB - 54 minutes
Echo SE 16GB - 7 minutes
OCZ Rally2 8GB - 6.5 minutes
Sandisk Cruzer Titanium 2GB - 11.5 minutes
Then I deleted the files I just copied:
Echo ZE 8GB - gave up after 20 minutes, about 400mb had been deleted. It kept freezing so I just quit.
Echo SE 16GB - 2 minutes
OCZ Rally2 8GB - 2.5 minutes
Sandisk Cruzer Titanium 2GB - 3.5 minutes
So as you can see at this point, the performance is absolutely horrible. It's by far the slowest drive I have ever used. And not just by a little bit. I was ready to give it a 1-star review and call it the worst flash drive ever. But instead I reformatted it to NTFS (it's FAT32 by default) and re-ran the same tests and got these results:
backup - 27 minutes
copy - 10 minutes
delete - 2.5 minutes
A HUGE improvement. Still not fantastic, but at least it's in the ballpark. I'm not sure why I needed to format it to NTFS.Read more ›
I had to wait till Monday to contact tech support. It is a call paid for by ME, not a toll free call.....it is to Berkeley California. I am put through the expected dozen prompts to get to the correct department (I hoped), and FINALLY, arrive to the correct extension. Now I am on hold for 20 minutes (remember, it is ME paying for this call!) and eventually get a support rep named Dorothy. From India.....NOT happy now and the language barrier is one of my toughest encounters ever with this particular woman. But she turns out to be able (after putting me on hold again while she "researched" my problem), to help me. She gives me the link to the software download I had not been able to find online myself, to allow me to download the proprietary software my unit was missing. But not so fast, have to do a FORMAT of their drive first, and not a quick format, but the ugly kind. Long story short, I eventually got through all the hoops and plugged the drive back in and sure enough, it finally works.Read more ›
Now on to the BIGGER issue, this drive on occasion will cause a blue screen on my 2010 AMD Phenom II laptop within a few seconds if I attempt to read a large file. The good old blue screen of death occurs due to a "bad_pool_caller" error, which is attributed to either 1)Bad hardware (memory chip) or 2) Bad software (hardware driver), in either case this is the offending device.
If you are an occasional user, looking for some kind of one time backup and forget it device, maybe this will work for you, but if you are a daily user and will store and read medium to large sized files, I would suggest looking elsewhere.
