Customer Reviews of SanDisk 64GB Ultra Backup USB Flash Drive
Easy and smooth4/15/2012
After configuring which files to be backed up, it couldn't be easier than pressing the "backup" button on the flash drive to backup all new files or changes in files in the folders you have decided to backup. You can save several versions of the same file and restore the one you find applicable. I have one issue regarding the backup program of this flash drive (unless there is something I have missed seeing), which is; I used almost all the space on the flash drive in my first backup. When I later tried to change/edit which backup folders I wanted, I was not able to without deleting my old backup. I backed up about 55 GB first time and when I tried to omit a folder in the backup plan, the backup program thought I wanted a completely new backup of all folders and added everything on top of the 55 GB --> which resulted in a full flash drive and unable to backup. Hopefully an updated version of the program will fix this in the future...?
Buy.com has the best price on this 64GB drive that I've found. The touch to backup feature on the drive works surprisingly well. However, when I updated my computer to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, the U3 software doesn't work anymore. It doesn't matter though since I just reformat the drive and use it for the 64GB storage capacity.
Not just a back-up drive!11/7/2010
If you keep this on your computer, you can install it, and it will automaticly back up your desktop and user documents. You can also put whatever folders or files on that you wish. It's not just a plain old storage device! Works like a charm without the user's having to do backup everytime something changes. Great product. Does not have case.
