What is M-DISC?
M-DISC is an archival-quality storage solution designed for you to protect precious memories, such as family pictures and home videos, for a long time. M-DISC DVDs can preserve data for up to 1,000 years or more, which when compared to the storage lifetime of eight years for hard drives, flash drives and other writable media, is an extraordinary amount of time. This helps ensure that your lifetime memories will be safe for generations to come.
Is there software included?
Supplied with the ZenDrive U7M is Cyberlink Power2Go, a disc burning program that will help you create a disc in just three steps and offers optional encryption functionality to protect your private files. Together with support for M-DISC media, this helps to protect your information and minimises data loss. Also included with this optical drive is six months free unlimited ASUS Web Storage capacity.
