The convenient, compact, and fashionable SanDisk Ultra Backup Flash drive offers a complete portable storage and backup solution. Featuring patent-pending backup technology--the industry's first--the SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive lets you back up critical files, such as photos, videos, and documents with the simple touch of a button. With 32 GB of capacity, this USB flash drive will give you the storage space you need to make sure that your most important data is protected.
Backing up your data with the SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive is incredibly easy. Unlike other backup solutions that offer heavy and cumbersome form factors and inconvenient cases, adapters, and cords, the SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive fits in the palm of your hand and plugs easily into virtually any computer's USB port.
With plug-and-play functionality, the USB flash drive requires no additional software or drivers for your computer. You simply plug it in and it's ready to go. The backup application is integrated into the drive, and it is activated by pressing a button, so it doesn't need to be installed on your computer.
Two Layers of Data Security Ensure Peace of Mind
The drive protects your digital content with password protection and secure Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) hardware encryption. This means that your content will stay private and secure via data scrambling at the flash controller level when the drives are either physically removed for portability or stored away for safe keeping.
The data encryption is accomplished automatically without you noticing. There's no activation or software needed. You simply use the SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive like you would any flash drive, but with the knowledge that your data is protected.
SecureAccess for Added Protection
Create a private folder or "vault" on your SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive with the SecureAccess software, available as a free download on sandisk.com. SecureAccess makes it easy to protect critical files like business presentations or legal documents. Simply drag and drop files into the vault, and they'll be protected by a personal password and automatic 128-bit AES encryption.*** You also get the added protection of secure online backup (up to 2 GB*) offered by SanDisk's online backup partner.****
Share your Content on Other Devices
You can also use the SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive as a regular USB flash drive for simple, safe storage and file transfer. Plug it into any of a variety of computing and CE devices, and you've got a portable and quick way to share your pictures, music, and videos with your friends and family.
Smart, Stylish Design for Ease of Use
With juxtaposed L-shapes, a bright red USB connector, and a capless design that exposes the USB connector via a sliding mechanism, the SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive looks just as great as it performs.
When you plug the disk into your computer, a glowing, amber-colored LED alerts you that the drives are ready for reading or writing data. This LED rapidly pulses when data is being transferred, and it slows down when the drives are idle, giving you a clear indication of the disk's activity. An intuitive interface appears on your computer screen to let you customize the way you back up your files.

You can use the drive as a plain vanilla USB drive without using the included backup utility. The transfer rate is decent. I got about 5-6 mb/sec write rate when writing 10 gb of mp3 songs and lyrics files, which is a tad faster than my brand new Patriot USB 3.0 usb drive (connected to a usb 2.0 port though) that is supposed to be super fast.
The backup utility is also quite functional, you can choose which folders or files to backup, frequency, and how many versions to keep, which is more-choice and easier to use than some other backup utilities. The backed up files can be restored to the original computer or to another computer. You can also set a password to protect the backup files, but if you do this, you won't be able to edit the backup files on the usb drive directly, which is quite inconvenient. This version does not seem to erase the data after entering wrong passwords for ten times, so this stick is different from the other one whose part number ends with -A11.
The secure Vault software is not loaded on this stick, so I had to download it from Sandisk's website. It is functional once I loaded it.
The Sandisk U3 utility does not run on this usb drive, so you can't lock up the entire usb with a password.
I particularly like the huge 64 GB capacity that I paid for. My work files have grown to over 30 GB, and with the large capacity of this stick, I don't need to waste time picking which files I don't need to backup. I started the backup at night, and it was done the next morning. It is peace of mind just in case my laptop gets lost or broken. Overall, nothing too much to complain about.
Admittedly, the initial backup took over an hour for ~50GB of data. Now, with one click, it analyzes computer data with flash drive data and only backs up the new information very quickly. I just insert this flash drive, push the backup button, and all my new files are copied along with any changes to existing files. You can also create separate backups, space permitting.
I like the U3 backup program too...it's a very small footprint on my system or you can use it direct from on the backup flash drive. It works quite well showing folders in tree format just like explorer. From there you can choose (check) the folders and/or sub-folders you want to backup. It remembers these settings or you can change your choices any time.
Overall, I think this is another great SanDisk product and, with it's included software, makes it a valuable backup device.
Simple, effective disaster recovery.
I recommend this product and I'm very happy with it. Perfect with Win XP, Vista and Seven. The construction and the materials are excellent quality.
