Clickfree: A Cheap Hardware Backup Solution for Dummies

Clickfree HD701 Backup UnitSo, you’ve always wanted to backup your computer’s content, but never took the time to do so. Whether it’s because you don’t have the time, or simply don’t know how to do it, Clickfree is likely the perfect solution for you. The backup system doesn’t require any software install or hardware to configure. Just plug it in and it’s ready to go. Truly that simple.

The Clickfree storage solution comes in either 120 (HD701) or 160GB (HD801) versions and can be attached to your computer via USB (1.0 and 2.0). The first time you plug it in, it will do a full backup of your content, which can take a while. But once that has finished, the system will only do incremental backups, only saving files that have recently been changed or added to your computer.

Once your backup has been done, unplug the device, and voilĂ ! Your files have all been saved to the drive. Need to refresh the backup? Plug the Clickfree unit back in, and it will automatically update itself.

Hat tip to Nelson Dumais (French) for the great find.
