Nebraska Professional Credits The Tornado™ Computer File Transfer Device With Synchronizing His Academic, Medical and Business Files

How does a busy professional who is a dentist, full time professor at The University of Nebraska and the president of a start-up software company keep a synchronized and balanced record of all the computer files on his laptop, desktop and portable slate tablet? Dr. Ron Attanasio of Lincoln, Nebraska, attributes his computer file and data management success to The Tornado™, the hottest automated computer file transfer device on the market today.

Dr. Attanasio's world is all about managing information, time and patients. He frequently interchanges his laptop, desktop and slate tablet as the workstation of choice depending on where he is and what he is doing at the time. In the classroom, he uses his laptop and slate tablet to take notes and to record lecture information. He uses his slate tablet while visiting patients to update medical information and note changes in their conditions and treatments.

At his software company Aldovision, www.aldovision.com, Dr. Attanasio constantly switches from laptop to desktop to attend business meetings, share presentations, and to record competitive data. Aldovision is a start-up company that creates a new line of learning software for a variety of educational venues.

"It is important that the files and notes on my laptop and slate tablet are transferred onto the hard drive of my base desktop computer, so that my academic, patient and business files are complete and in sync with one other. I also need to make sure that I have a reliable back-up copy for all of my work," said Dr. Attanasio. "Before I found The Tornado™, it was a logistical nightmare to constantly transfer files and data from one machine to another using the available technology."

"The Tornado™ saves me a lot of valuable time and is the most secure method I have found to help me manage the proprietary files and data that must stay current on all of my computer devices," said Dr. Attanasio. "The Tornado™ is plug-n-play easy and is small enough for me to take along to business meetings and when I travel."

The Tornado™ was created and patented by Data Drive Thru in Dallas, Texas. It features two retractable USB cables and embedded software that auto-loads and auto-runs a user-friendly split-screen onto each computer. The screen displays the contents of each computer and allows for a simple drag and drop action to move files from one machine to another at speeds up to 25 Mb/sec. The Tornado™ also can be used to quickly create back-up files and is compatible with most Microsoft® operating system programs.

"All types of busy professionals are using The Tornado™ to successfully transfer files and personal documents in the medical, insurance, banking, investment, accounting, legal, entertainment, energy and traditional business industries," said Paul L. Andrus, Founder and CEO of Data Drive Thru. "It is quickly becoming a must have tool with any new computer purchase."

Data Drive Thru also is the creator of the PC Eraser™ that offers multiple methods to delete select files from the hard drives of computers in accordance with two U.S. Government Department of Defense standards and the even more robust Guttman method. The graphic user interface allows you to select files using either the drag-n-drop method from a Windows® based GUI or from PC Eraser's™ File Selector function. You simply click on "destroy" and your files disappear. The interface also allows you to specify files and extensions that you do not want to destroy, and to destroy any remnant data located in unallocated disk space.

Dallas Accounting Firm Streamlines Field Audits and Financial Data Sharing with TheTornado™ Computer File Transfer Device

When auditing a company's financial records, accounting firms are challenged with reviewing mounds of data and numbers that must be kept secure and privileged under law. When these audits take place in the field at a client's office, it is even more challenging to secure guarded copies of proprietary financial information and to transfer that required data onto the accounting firms portable computers.

Dallas Accounting Firm Montgomery, Coscia and Greilich, LLP. www.mcggroup.com have found a new way to safely and accurately transfer financial records during field audits from the client's computers to their own laptops without copying files or downloading large amounts of sensitive network data. The Tornado™ is a patented computer file transfer device that automatically networks two computers, so that moving information from one to the other is as easy as dragging and dropping a file.

Just plug the retractable USB cables into the USB ports and The Tornado™ networks two PCs in just seconds. With The Tornado™ there are no wizards to follow, software to install, or cables to buy - just plug it in. The auto-load feature creates a split screen on each machine showing the entire contents of both computers. You simply move the files you want from one computer to the other at speeds up to 25 MB/s. The Tornado™ also can be used to quickly create back-up files and is compatible with most Microsoft® operating system programs.

"The Tornado™ has saved our accounting firm both time and money with the speed in which it networks computers and transfers files during our field audits," said Paul Greilich, Lead Audit Partner at Montgomery, Coscia and Greilich, LLP. "Often, the financial files we need to copy are very large and difficult to transfer to a disk or memory stick. However, because The Tornado™ automatically transfers the entire file from one computer to another, the file size is no longer relevant."

Greilich added that The Tornado™ works very well in all types of business and personal computer file transfer situations, and that it also offers an added layer of information security to protect a client's records. "That file protection and information accuracy is essential in the accounting industry," Greilich said.

"The Tornado™ has been used by IT professionals and PC owners to transfer all types of files and personal documents in the medical, insurance, banking, investment, accounting, legal, entertainment, energy and traditional business industries," said Paul L. Andrus, Founder and CEO of Data Drive Thru. "Everyone who has used The Tornado™ has been excited over its performance. It is quickly becoming a must have tool with any new computer purchase."

Data Drive Thru also is the creator of the PC Eraser™ that offers multiple methods to delete select files from the hard drives of computers in accordance with two U.S. Government Department of Defense standards and the even more robust Guttman method. The graphic user interface allows you to select files using either the drag-n-drop method from a Windows® based GUI or from PC Eraser's™ File Selector function. You simply click on "destroy" and your files disappear. The interface also allows you to specify files and extensions that you do not want to destroy, and to destroy any remnant data located in unallocated disk space.
