I am always working on something. I am so busy most of the time that popping in a flash drive seems much faster and easier then using a CD.
My external hard drive stores all my major files. My flash drive offers easier access to items I am currently working on at the time or those which I need to access in a hurry.
The flash drive I use the most is this Pink 2.0 Gig Flash Drive. It is my favorite companion.
* It plugs into the USB port on any computer.
* No software is needed. My computer recognized it right when I plugged it in the first time. There is no waiting.
* A pop up window loads when the flash drive is plugged into the computer which allows me to choose how I want to display the contents.
* It comes in stylish colors. (I chose pink, but many others are available. Black, blue, red, and yellow are some other colors available. When looking on Ebay, you may find even more colors.)
* It has 2 gig storage space.
* It loads quickly, and it is stable. It has never crashed.
* There is no worries about loosing the cap. It is a one piece flash drive with the cap attached to the drive.
* It can be worn on the wrist for easy access while on the computer.
* Folder options and display options are customizable for easy storage and organization of all items saved on the flash drive.
* This drive is easily maintained. Anything that can be used to maintain the hard drive can be used to maintain the flash drive. Example: Disk clean up, defrag, virus scans, and spy ware scans can all be used to maintain this flash drive and to protect the files stored there.
For my purposes there are no drawbacks to this flash drive. It is my constant companion and has served me well for almost two years. I would be lost without it.
Those people who still prefer using CDs will probably not want this flash drive.
I recommend this flash drive to anyone who needs 2 gigs of easy access space at their fingertips.
