Pexagon Technology released Store-It 1.8" and 2.5" portable USB 2.0 external hard drives. Both devices are built with Hitachi Travelstar hard drives and include EMC Retrospect backup software. Available drive capacities are 20GB and 60GB for the 1.8" device and 40GB to 120GB for the 2.5" device. "As shocking as it seems, a good majority of people still don't back up their data on a regular basis," says Brian Campbell, president of Pexagon Technology. "By providing external hard drives with EMC Retrospect Express, our devices take the hassle out of backup." Each Store-It drive has a push button called EZ-Touch One Button Backup that, when pushed, launches Retrospect software and backs up your data. Retrospect features progressive backup technology that backs up only new and changed data, saving time and disk space. Retrospect also passwordprotects, encrypts, and verifies your backups.

Two new services have been introduced to the Store-It drives. For a small price, you get to choose between Personalization Custom Laser Engraving, which lets you add three lines of text to the drive's enclosure, or myDrive Lost-N-Found, which engraves a 10-character ID number with contact information for returning the drive.
