Flash drives are as common as pocket change for just about everyone who
uses a computer. Students, professionals, pastors, doctors and lawyers
all carry flash drives in their pockets, purses or store them in a
SanDisk recently released a series of 8, 16, 32 and 64GB flash drives that not only store information but also backup your data at the touch of a button.
There’s a lot of backup options you have for your corporate and personal data.
Online backup solutions are very good, but if you need a file “right
now” and find Internet access intermittent, then an online system won’t
work. CDs and DVD’s are useful, but when was the last time you really
wanted to carry one of those plastic disks around.
The only challenge with carrying around a small flash drive with
your life’s work on it is that if you lose the drive, and I know many
of you have, or break the drive you could be losing a lot more than a
piece of plastic. While carrying a bike for my daughter, one of my
flash drives, was crushed in my pocket some years ago.
If you need to carry data back and forth, or need to have a backup
of your data for a long trip, having large storage and backup options
on a memory stick is the way to go.
One more very important thing Make sure your data is password protected and encrypted.
