Using The Technology That Makes The Web Work.
Packets – that’s the technology already proven wildly successful on the World Wide Web, in networking, and for the CD-rewriteable markets. And that’s the enabling technology behind VXA. Called Discrete Packet Format™ (DPF), it allows data to be written and read in packet form – dramatically improving the ability to restore your precious data.

VXA also incorporates two other noteworthy (and proprietary) features. Variable Speed Operation™ (VSO) completely annihilates a wear-and-tear tape problem called “backhitching” which can lead to critical data loss. OverScan Operation™ (OSO) is a unique technique where the packets are read by multiple scans – virtually assuring 100% restore of all your data. For more details, visit Why Purchase a VXA drive?
