By Andrew Liszewski

Flash drives are finally reaching storage capacities where they’re actually useful as a backup tool, instead of just for transporting files. So at CES 2009, Sandisk introduced what they claim to be the first USB flash drive to include a dedicated ‘Backup’ button. What innovation! At the push of a button your specified files are automatically copied to the flash drive, and for extra peace of mind the drive’s got password protection and AES hardware encryption to keep your files safe and secure. The drives should be available sometime in April of this year in capacities ranging from 8GB to 64GB, and will sell for between $39.99 and $199.99.
