Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology, Inc., today announced urDrive, a free pre-loaded application available on a variety of its DataTraveler USB Flash drives.
urDrive transforms USB drives from passive storage to engaged, active storage, allowing users to access and organize their personal files, photos, music, games and videos. A built-in photo viewer and MP3 player makes looking at pictures and listening to music.
urDrive also enhances security on the PC with Norton PC Checkup. The diagnostic tool scans for virus infections (including spyware, worms and adware) and checks for slow performance and risks to identity and data. urDrive further enhances the digital experience with the Maxthon 3 Web browser. Maxthon 3 boasts fast startup and rendering speeds. All temp files, history and cookies remain on the drive, keeping browsing private particularly on public computers.
Business professionals can easily access content at work or home and even extend storage capacity beyond the USB with free, additional online backup. The service syncs files from USB to cloud offering backup and access. For family entertainment, urDrive provides access to the latest casual game titles from EA Games and PopCap Games. Busy moms can rest assured that their kids can safely engage in online activities with the Fooz Kids kid-safe web browsing application. Travelers can view, manage and share their growing photo and video albums on the go, while carrying digital copies of critical documents, like passports.
urDrive is available as a free, pre-loaded application on Kingston's entry-level DataTraveler 101G2, 108 and 109 USB Flash drives, and soon on the DTIG3. These devices offer users a choice in design and capacity, from 4GB to 32GB.
