Effortless back-ups with new Clickfree hard drive

Apparently around 90% of you free-wheeling rebels out there don't back up your data regularly, but now you really don't have any excuse.

The paperback-sized portable (180g) device is powered via two USB cables and should work instantly with Windows 2000, XP or Vista.

The HD801 scans for changes to media, documents and even Outlook emails but not system or program files. Those users who don't mind the odd click or two can change even which folders and file extensions the Clickfree drive will index.
