Clickfree Backup Moves Off Pricey Disks to Pricey Cable

USB cable comes with software for super-simple backup to any external drive

Dave at CES: One of my favorite backup options just got more flexible. Clickfree software, which makes it almost mindless to back up a PC's precious data, now comes on a $60 cable that automates the process for any hard drive.


Before, the software came installed on somewhat pricey hard drives and DVDs. Plugging them into a machine starts the backup process. It usually requires a user to do nothing, meaning they might actually do something to finally protect their data.
At $60, the cable still costs more than other backup software, which often comes for free on some hard drives. But if it works as well as the Clickfree disks, none is easier to use.
