Recently my USB flash drive started deleting contents stored on it so I needed to replace it ASAP! I actually got this one free by converting some.of my reward points on the maximiles website. Normally this costs around a fiver. The first thing I noticed when this arrived was its compact size and lightweight. Both good points but I did wonder about losing it easily. The USB stick has a little hole though, to enable you to attach it to a keychain if you wish. There is no cover to protect this USB stick so I didn''t want to attach it to my bunch of keys and risk it getting damaged but I choose to hang it in the house instead. It is red and black and very small and discreet. Not that it''s a fashion accessory, but if it were it would be suitable for male and females of all ages on looks. 8 GB which according to Amazon holds: 450 photos + 20 mins of video + 500 songs. This size suits my needs fine at the moment. You can also get smaller and larger flash (from 2GB up to 32GB) drives by Sandisk. If you''re not sure if it will be big enough I''d always recommend getting a larger option. After all it''s better to have too much memory and space for more content than running out and needing to buy another anyway. As an added bonus you also get 2GB of online backup space to back up any important files in case you should lose it. You can also password protect some or all files if there are any files you don''t want others to see such as confidential files in case it is lost or stolen. How to use These flash drives are super easy to use, simply plugging into your device without the need for any installation. You will get a pop up screen which asks you to add a password. I mainly use it on my laptop where I will find the folder for it in the "my computer" menu then just drag and drop files from various folders into this one to transfer. It is fast, easy and once I know it''s transferred I can delete files from my laptop. The flashdrive comes with a 5 year warranty which is good. The only thing I would recommend is making sure you safely remove it from your device. It doesn''t take long to do and just pulling these devices out can cause corruption (I suspect that''s the.problem with my old flashdrive. Once your files are on your flashdrive you can plug it in to any device with a USB. I''ve used mine in the XBox to listen to music, saved files from an old desktop to the drive to view on a laptop and plugged it into photo machines to print hard copies of some favourite snaps. I''d definitely recommend this flash drive, it''s good value, easy to use and small and lightweight!
