USB Storage Devices
A Thumb Drive is basically a re-writable, portable, solid-state data storage device. Aptly named because it’s the size of a thumb that goes into a USB port. The USB Thumb Drive stores data without the need of a power supply. This makes it very handy to have around. Once plugged into a computer, you can access the information on the Thumb drive without restarting the computer. Thumb drives also are called, USB Flash Drives, Jump Drives, or Flash Drive.
While these drives are durable, it is prone to corruption after numerous uses. Once you reach 1,500 or so insertions, the drive begins to corrupt and will eventually fail. Until that time, they are shielded in thick plastic from magnetism and are very safe from external damage. They’re durable for travel or in a pocketful of change. In the past once they failed and had not been backed up the information on it would be lost forever. eProvided has changed this because we are able to retrieve information and even repair any damaged files within.
