Default storage solution

Does anyone know of an external USB drive that will automatically start a backup without any user interaction? I have a client that needs this solution and not a copy / paste performed.

let me know if I need to clarify.

Thanks a mil!

Is software like Acronis True Image Home 2011 out of the question?
Works like a charm, no interaction required after initial set-up.

USB self-backup drives I know of are one-click...

I have seen this product around a couple of times, have heard a lot of good things, but never personally used it. You basically connect it and it backups up automatically. They even make dongles to plug into things such as your Ipod to back that up as well. If you do end up getting it, definitely start a thread reviewing it. Would be interested.


Edit: They seem to have a special going on with some great prices as well.
