USB Storage Devices
A Thumb Drive is 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 store large amounts of files. Once plugged into a computer, you can access the information on the Thumb drive. Without restarting your PC you have access to all your data. Thumb drives are also called, USB Flash Drives, Jump Drives, or memory sticks.
Thumb drives are durable, but also prone to corruption. After numerous write cycles they become less reliable. In reaching 1,500 or so insertions, the USB drive begins to be corrupted. Therefore the USB stick will eventually fail. Data loss does happen. Flash drives are shielded in thick plastic and are safe from external damage. Once USB sticks fail and are not backed up the information on them can be lost forever. This is where eProvided comes in. We are able to retrieve files and even repair any damaged data within a broken USB storage drive.
