Supplied software

StoreJet Elite backup software was supplied on each of our review samples. It’s a simple matter of installing the software onto the host PC in order to use StoreJet Elite.

We will now take a very brief look at the StoreJet Elite backup utility.

On first starting the StoreJet Elite software, we are able to select the package to start as soon as we boot the PC, and we can also enable the “one touch feature” for drives that support the “one touch backup button”, such as the StoreJet 25M3.

The “sync all” feature allows you to selectively change what you wish to backup, and from this screen you may also setup a backup schedule.

We only very briefly tested StoreJet Elite.

The one touch backup worked flawlessly with the StoreJet 25M3, and the “sync all” feature worked equally well on both drives, with no problems to report
