My father is working with a company in Colorado that makes a very nifty backup appliance for Windows machines, called Rebit, which provides continuous backup without any learning curve or effort. It’s a pocket-sized USB hard drive that draws power from the USB connection (so there’s no need for an adapter).
There are no buttons or switches or setup programs to install or configure. As soon as you plug it in, a dialog box pops up asking you for permission to let Rebit go to work. You click OK, and that’s it. The software on the Rebit drive goes to work to make an exact copy of everything on your computer’s hard drive. It also catalogs old copies of your files, so you can go back to an older version of a document, if you wish.
Oooooooooh. I think David has something like this, but I’m not certain. Also not certain if the whatsit sitting right here on my desk is not doing something similar. Still, “oooooh.”
