These powerful functions, together with support for archival-quality M-DISC media, protect information and minimize the risk of data loss to give users complete peace of mind.

ZenDrive U7M also comes withNero BackItUp for Android, a full, backup solution for Android smartphones and tablets. With just one tap, Nero BackItUp automatically backs up a mobile device’s contacts, messages, call logs, personal settings, songs, photos, and videos to online storage, an SD card, or your PC, so users can keep their data safe even if their device is lost or stolen.
