CMS Products on Thursday introduced its ABS-V2, an automatic backup external hard disk drive for Macs and PCs that connects via USB 2.0, using Serial ATA-based drive mechanisms. The drives include CMS’ BounceBack Professional backup software, and cost from $239 to $349 depending on capacity.
The ABS-V2 copies the contents of your Mac’s internal hard disk drive, including the operating system. If your hard disk fails, you can recover from the ABS-V2. And, in the case of Intel Macs, you can also boot from the drive.
The ABS-V2 weighs seven ounces. It’s available in 80, 120 and 160GB capacities for $239, $289 and $349 respectively. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later.
