Corsair Flash Voyager Port

Introduction

Introduction
 
Backing up all your important data can be a lengthy and tedious process, but for many people it is absolutely vital. Corsair, well known for listening to it's customer base,  feels it has come up with a solution to the back-up headache, with their Flash Voyager Port.
 
As part of their market research, Corsair ran a survey on the Scan.co.uk website to see what computer users were looking for in data back-up. There were some interesting findings, the report for which can be viewed here.  Armed with their research, Corsair then set about developing the Voyager Port, for which the specification can be found below.
  
* Works with any flash drive
But it looks best with Corsair Flash Voyagers!

* One button backup
Simply press the button to backup your important files

* Award-winning NovaBackup 10 software included - worth $50
Easy-to-use, powerful backup software. Create backup scripts and even create a full snapshot of your PC to safeguard your data in the event of a system failure

* No external power required
Power is supplied by the USB 2.0 bus

* Stylish and compact
Practical and also more 'fun' than a typical brick-shaped HDD backup device
  
The inclusion of NovaBackup will certainly be useful, and my guess is Corsair have worked with NovaStor to include compatibility with the one touch button on the Voyager Port. The ability to work with any flash drive is also useful for people who already own a large drive and do not wish to buy a new one, although Corsair do say it looks best with one of their own Flash Voyager drives.
  
So, without further delay, lets take a look at the device itself...

Very nice product and very nice review..

Thing is I'd need a pretty hefty memory stick to be able to back up enough data.

Nice review, link to the 32GB drive is broken

As bungral said, its not big enough, unless you used it for major backups only...

Its not broken, ebuyer have just run out of stock It would seem.

If It doesnt come back in stock in the next few days then Ill add a different link..

32/64gb may not seem enough, but actually, all my vital data was only a fraction of what I thought it would be.

Is that powered just through the USB? If you have to start faffing around with power bricks it kind of loses the appeal of the Port...

Yep, WD Passports go up through 500GB and are USB powered:

One thing I hate about the Passport is that it is so f00king expensive. Well for me anyways.

Looks and sounds great. One question though is does the port/software allow for backup of the USB stick to your PC? as I would find that more useful backing up my PC to the USB Stick.

Sorry for not making my self clear. I currently keep alot of my documents and files on my USB stick as I work between 4 pc's at different locations. As such every so often I take a copy of my usb stick as save it to my PC. Can this device do this for at a press of a button?

You can't link it to the button from what I can see, but it's quite simple to restore from the USB drive, if that is what you mean?

Thanks for that, it sounds like this device will be no good for what i need to do, as i want a quicker way to take a backup of my usb stick rather than use the stick as a backup drive.
