No Hard Drive Lives Forever...

Hard drives are sensitive, complex mechanical devices. Most modern hard drives can hit over 7200 RPMs!

But it's not without a cost: No matter HOW hard you try, 100% of hard drives will eventually crash.

AND THAT ALMOST ALWAYS SPELLS DISASTER!

 

What do you do when your hard drive crashes?

Well, there are only two outcomes...

 

1. If you don't back up your data:

It's gone. Throw your hard drive in the trash and start fresh... because you are NOT recovering that data. A dead hard drive is just that. It's game over.

 

2. If you DO back up your data:

You take your handy little SanDisk 16GB back up flash drive and put all your saved files on your next computer. With the push of a button!

You don't lose a single file, and you don't spend the weekend wishing you had printed those vacation photos that you'll never get back.

Which one would you prefer?

There's only ONE reason not to back up data: it USED to be hard. It took a lot of time, it took expensive hardware or software, and it took some tech-savvy. You had to know file extensions, directories, the whole works.

NOT ANYMORE! IT JUST GOT AS EASY AS PUSHING ONE BUTTON!

 

 

The SanDisk 16GB Instant Backup Flash Drive!

NO software. NO set up. NO time consuming steps. All you do is plug it in and press the button!

Could it BE any easier?

The first time you pop it in, it just asks you what directories you want to backup. After that, every new backup is just a button away.

 

So you'll know EXACTLY where to find them on the flash drive or after you back them up to another PC!

Think about everything you have on your computer: TONS of photos. ALL of your favorite music. Family videos and contact information.

How about work documents, important files, sensitive documents. Even your passwords, e-mails, favorite web pages... EVERYTHING!

After a crash, you can't get those photos back. The videos are now distant memories. And your passwords? Good luck remembering the ones you haven't had to type in for years.

And with backing up this easy, you won't even have to think about it!

This DEFINES User Friendly!

We tested it out, just check out the video:

Ultra Sleek, Ultra Secure, ULTRA FAST!

It looks, feels, and acts just like your standard flash drive (of course, standard flash drives can't hold a candle to this one) so you know it's gonna be easy and lightweight to move or store.

Plus, it has a retractable connector so you ALSO know it's gonna stay safe from any potential accidents!

That's right - Just drag and drop files to it and use it like any other flashdrive! Talk about the best of both worlds!!

Take it anywhere! Back up any PC or laptop! Use it for EVERYTHING!

And if you're looking for fast, this thing is gonna BLOW YOU AWAY!

This flash drive is part of the SanDisk "Ultra" series, their fastest USB 2.0 drives out there.

 

Last but not least: IT'S SECURE!

When you back up anything on this drive, you can choose to encrypt it and guard it with a password of your choice! Nobody but you or those you trust get access to YOUR files.

So all your tax, financial, and confidential documents? You can back them up too without worrying! FINALLY!

All those passwords on your PC don't mean a thing if you don't have SECURE backups.

But with this SanDisk, it's not a problem.

A Backup Drive For UNDER $15! WOW!

If you go anywhere to try and get a backup drive, you'll be looking $40 for the BARE MINIMUM! And those are bulky, heavy external hard drives that you really can't move or store.

And as a personal note, I kept two of these once we got 'em and I've got my home and work PC backed up on these flash drives. I love them already. They're that good!

You will NOT find a faster, more convenient backup drive out there for just $14.97!

These are simply one of the coolest devices I've ever seen. PLEASE don't miss out on this deal. We only have so many and once they're gone... that's it.

http://store.worldstart.com/product/8721

LIMITED QUANTITY - Again, we can't get any more than the ones we have! And after Friday this sale will end, with the price going back up to $22.97! HURRY TO THE STORE!





 

Today's Joke

Hot Shoe

One day, a cowboy walked into a blacksmith shop and picked up a horseshoe, not realizing it had just come from the forge.

He immediately dropped it and jammed his hand into his pocket, trying to act as if nothing had happened.

The blacksmith noticed and asked with a grin, "Kind of hot, wasn't it?"

"Nope," answered the cowboy through clenched teeth. "It just doesn't take me long to look at a horseshoe!"

Last Laugh

Anti-War

The social studies teacher had just finished a unit on war and peace. "How many of you," he asked, "would say you're opposed to war?"

Not surprisingly, all hands went up. The teacher asked, "Who'll give us the reason for being opposed to war?"

A large, bored-looking boy in the back of the room raised his hand.

"Johnny?" the teacher said.

"I hate war," Johnny said, "because wars make history, and I hate history!"

Abram's Falls

I love the Smoky Mountains, particularly the Cade’s Cove area. However, in my mind Cade’s Cove generally = wildlife. But not this time. I had passed by the trailhead for Abram’s Falls one too many times, so my wife and I decided it was time to hike back and see what we could do photographically. So, we were at the gate right when…(More)

Curious Cub

I found this little guy, his two siblings, and his mother working over a blackberry patch in Cade’s Cove one foggy June morning. Now, the Smoky Mountains are well known for black bears, but Cade’s Cove is the best place to spot ‘em – add some blackberry bushes, and well, this particular day I saw more bears than...(More)

Bull Elk

As I was packing my truck that cold, blustery morning, the plan was fairly simple: Find a cool critter. Normally, this plan entails quite a bit of searching and not so much finding. However, this morning was different. As I was driving along admiring the freshly fallen snow, I couldn’t help but think how amazing it would be to...(More)
