Memorex SimpleSave back-up solution DVDs do it all for you. Use SimpleSave:Photo to find and save digital images on your PC. Use SimpleSave:Music to do the same for audio files. Each disc has 4.5GB of capacity, enough to back up approximately 2,200 photos or 1,000 songs based on average file sizes. Automatic, All-in-One Back-Up With Memorex SimpleSave DVDs, consumers can automatically find, organize and back up their photos or music just by inserting the SimpleSave disc into their DVD drive. The back-up software automatically launches from the SimpleSave disc, with no installation required, then finds the designated file types on your PC and saves them onto the very same SimpleSave disc. The software automatically lets you know when the disc is full and prompts you to insert another disc. No additional software or recording media are required, and there's no need to configure the software. If desired, advanced options allow you to designate which file types should be located and saved. "There's nothing worse than losing all your important files, especially precious photos that can't be replaced," said Carla Pihowich, Memorex Brand Manager, Imation Corp. "With SimpleSave DVDs, Memorex offers consumers an easy to use, all-in-one solution for automatically backing up your PC.
