During my relatively short working life I’ve worked in for three IT departments, two within educational establishments, and one local government.

As I’m sure anyone with similar experience would agree, far too much time is spent correcting the mistakes of users who weren’t trained, were incompetent, or (in the case of educational establishments especially) were malicious.

Now a company going by the name of Jackson Backup thinks they’ve found the solution in a product they’re calling the Jackson Armor Card.

So what does it do? Well in their words:


The Jackson Armor Card offers remarkable improvements in speed, reliability and protection for computer operating systems and program setting. No matter how your System/Data is destroyed; either by virus attacks, deletion, formatting, overwrites, fdisk, modification or improper shutdowns, by simply rebooting your system it will recover instantly. No other additional system/data recovery operations are required


And of course no introduction is complete without a table or two!
