Sandisk Announces 4GB Cruzer Titanium

Sandisk has announced a new addition to its Cruzer line of USB flash drives. The 4GB Cruzer Titanium Plus offers an extra measure of archiving security to photographers who use a flash drive to carry and transfer image files. Software included on the drive automatically creates an online backup copy of any file moved onto the device from a computer running Windows 2000, XP, or Vista.

Sandisk has partnered with BeInSync to provide the online storage component. BeInSync uses Amazon Web Services to store files in a password-protected online account. Files are retained online for 30 days when they're deleted from the drive, as long as backups do not exceed its 4GB capacity. The storage service is free to Cruzer purchasers for six months, after which time it costs $29.99 per year. The drive has a crush-resistant metal case and comes with security options for encrypting and password-protecting the files stored on it.

The Cruzer Titanium Plus will be available in March 2008 for a $59.99 retail price.
