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 a dual layer of both 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 fact that many governments approve the AES algorithm is testimony to its validity.

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.

Share your Content on Other Devices

Smart, Stylish Design for Ease of Use
With 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 customise the way you back up your files.

The SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash drive offers complete storage and backup performance to Windows XP and Windows Vista computers, and it can be used as a storage device for Windows 2000, Mac OS X v10.1.2+, and Linux machines.

The drive is backed by a five-year limited warranty.
