MILPITAS, Calif., September 14, 2011- SanDisk
Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash memory storage
solutions, today introduced the SanDisk® Memory
Vault, the first product in a new category of devices that are
designed for long-term data preservation. SanDisk announced the
device today as part of a comprehensive new
suite of retail products.
The SanDisk Memory Vault is a photo
album for the digital age that allows consumers to preserve images
in one reliable location. The device connects to a computer's USB
port for easy drag-and-drop functionality and features a sleek,
ruggedized, metallic design that looks great on any desktop and
fits into any drawer.
"SanDisk already offers great
image-capture products, and we've built upon that expertise to
create a new category of image-preservation products," said Tim
Sutton, senior product marketing manager, SanDisk. "The Memory
Vault allows parents to preserve photos of their daughter's first
steps alongside videos from her wedding and then pass those images
down for generations to come."
Most Consumers Would Not
Destroy Their Family Photos for One Million Dollars
SanDisk also issued results from an online survey conducted on its
behalf by Harris Interactive from July 28-August 1, 2011 among
2,294 U.S. adults aged 18 and older2. The survey found that 79
percent of U.S. adults with digital photos plan on passing them
down to future generations. Photos are so precious that 64 percent
of U.S. adults would not consider destroying their family photo
collection for any amount of money, not even for one million
Hard drives contain moving parts and
CDs can scratch; the SanDisk Memory Vault delivers the long-term
reliability that valuable photos deserve. The device utilizes
SanDisk's Chronolock™ technology, which incorporates the key
elements of advanced solid-state storage to create a proprietary
memory management solution. SanDisk conducted accelerated
temperature cycling tests that simulated the effects of data
retention over long periods of time. This allows the device to
provide consumers with peace of mind that their precious photos and
videos will be preserved for up to 100 years1.

Vault lets consumers consolidate family photos in one reliable
