Host Interface International's new backup and restore software tool can be used across
entire local or remote networks with unlimited Windows machines and is interoperable with multiple types of storage media. Panasonic's DVD-RAM technology is advantageous to Double Image 5.0 customers because it can handle large volumes of data on one 9.4GB double-sided DVD with rewriteability up to 100,000 times. DVD-RAM discs also act as a removable hard drive and provide advanced defect management, according to Panasonic. With the ability to read/write to DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R, and CD-RW media, the OEM DVD MULTI drive is a cost-effective storage solution that provides users the flexibility to switch between removable storage media without having to purchase new hardware or software.
With Host Interface International, DVD-RAM discs can be formatted with standard Windows NTFS file formatting. Double Image 5.0 then treats the DVD-RAM disc exactly like a hard drive--with the benefits of removability. In addition, Host International's software reads and writes standard Windows data compression to DVD-RAM discs--giving the user more storage options for the high-capacity DVD disc.
Double Image 5.0 was benchmarked and certified on Panasonic's OEM DVD Multi drive--model SW-9571-CYY--and supports various data formats. By writing and reading using non-proprietary I-O, Double Image 5.0 is abiding by the same file I-O that is used by Windows Explorer, permitting other programs to easily access the files copied by Double Image.
Double Image 5.0 is now available with an MSRP of $59.95.
