Digital storage solution provides increased file security; simplifies backup procedures.

Dental professionals who have struggled with storing digital files will now be able to backup their records quickly and easily at the push of a button, thanks to the new Seagate 160GB external USB hard drive from Patterson EagleSoft.

Certified for use with Patterson EagleSoft software and hardware, the external USB hard drive is a sleek and sophisticated storage solution designed to meet the needs of the digital office. The unique pushbutton backup feature is faster and easier than any other method: simply stop the server engine, hit the backup button on the drive and backup is completed automatically. Sold in a six-pack, each external USB hard drive can securely store up to 40,000 high-resolution digital images.

"As practices grow, dental professionals need to store more and more digital files. The new external USB hard drive can really improve an office's backup procedures by freeing up space on the hard drive and storing those files quickly and securely," said Travis Nelson, digital product manager, Patterson Technology Center. "We recommend the office rotate one drive for each day and one drive for the end of the month."

The lightweight, compact external USB hard drive can be connected and disconnected without turning off the computer for fast and convenient handling and transportation, and a straightforward on/off switch eliminates the guesswork of shutting down safely. The unique interlocking design can be stacked for compact storage.
