Taipei, Taiwan (11th December, 2015) — ASUS today announced ZenDrive U7M (SDRW-08U7M-U), an ultra-slim external USB DVD writer with M-DISC® archival media support. Designed to help users protect their lifelong memories — such as family photos and home videos — M-DISC DVDs can store data for 1,000 years or more1, giving the peace of mind that these important moments will be safe for generations to come. ZenDrive U7M comes with two free M-DISC DVDs2, so users can get started preserving their priceless memories and important data immediately.
ASUS ZenDrive U7M supports M-DISC, an archival-quality storage solution created by Millenniata, Inc. that works by laser-etching data into a patented rock-like storage layer that is resistant to extreme light, temperature, and humidity. Compared to hard drives, flash drives, and other writeable media — which have an average storage lifetime of approximately eight years — M-DISC is designed to protect against degradation and data loss for 1,000 years or more, ensuring precious memories are kept safe for generations to come.
ASUS ZenDrive U7M provides a complete and easy-to-use backup solution for precious digital memories and important information. ZenDrive U7M comes with CyberLink Power2Go 8, intuitive software that simplifies the disc-burning process and offers optional encryption functionality to protect private files. 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.
Additionally, ZenDrive U7M users are given unlimited ASUS WebStorage space free for six months. ASUS WebStorage lets users store files online and access them easily from any internet-connected device.
