Lexar sent out a press release this morning, announcing their new ExpressCard SSD. While smaller in size than other PC card solutions, the ExpressCard SSD offers capacities as high as 16GB and is enhanced for use with Windows Vista's ReadyBoost technology. To top it off, it comes bundled with auto-backup software.

Lexar Media, Inc., a world leader in advanced digital media technologies, today announced the introduction of its new ExpressCard SSD with auto-backup software. Roughly half the size of current PC Card solutions, the Lexar ExpressCard SSD is a high-capacity removable solid state drive (SSD) that promises to set a new standard for delivering high-performance, lower-cost storage expansion to notebook computers. The Lexar ExpressCard SSD comes bundled with auto-backup software, an innovative solution for protecting laptop computer files and data that allows for automatic regular (daily, weekly, or monthly) backup without user intervention after the initial setup. During this setup, the user will be able to set the folder and specific file types to be included or excluded from the backup process. In addition, this automatic backup software can also support multiple computers by recognizing the computer name and the appropriate backup setting for each computer.
No word on pricing or availability yet. As we find out more, we'll let you know. In the mean time, Lexar's entire press release can be found here.
