Cruzer USB Flash Drive

I bought a device called a USB flash drive. It’s about the size of a fat marker (some are even smaller)and plugs into your computer USB port. This is much better than saving temporarily on a disk because it’s more like a mini hard drive and will store the equivalent of about 44 floppy disks (more for the bigger flash drives).

I used it to save some of the files on my laptop and then transfer them to another computer so they could be printed. Later, I used the flash drive to transfer my new files from the laptop to my home computer. This is so easy to use, it’s amazing.

I used it to save some of the files on my laptop and then transfer them to my daughter’s computer so they could be printed.

When I arrived home, I used the flash drive (or key as it’s sometimes called) to transfer my new files from the laptop to my home computer. Quick and easy.

 

I purchased a SanDisk Cruzer Micro USB Flash Drive with a 1.0 gb storage capacity. It was a great price and I was looking forward to all the storage room I would have.

I was a bit disappointed when I used it the first time though. My smaller USB flash was a simple matter of plugging into my computer and dragging the files I wanted to store unto it.

But this new Cruzer comes with programs on it – skype, an email synch program, a password manager, an antivirus program, and some games.

All good programs, but I need the storage space more than I need them. Plus, there is an extra learning curve before I can save my files.

I still appreciate the flash drive, but simpler is better for me.
