Description:

Nero BackItUp versions 2 thru 4 support the "Push for backup" feature that's implemented on some external hard disks - which enables the user to start a predefined backup by pushing a button on the drive. NBKeyScan is used to scan the peripherals for compatible devices and - if such devices have been found - to communicate between Nero BackItUp and the external hard drive. Installed as part of both stand alone products and Nero digital media suites (CD/DVD burning, authoring, etc)
