USB flash drives have long helped people in keeping personal and important information accessible and portable. They are particularly useful in instances where files are too large to be attached on emails or a stable internet connection is just not available. And thanks to advancements in the manufacturing and development of flash memory, thumb drives these days offer more features and functionality making them quite handy not only in transferring data but also in backing them up.

These days, flash drives can reach up to 256GB that expands its capability in storing not only light-weight documents, spread sheets or presentations but also larger files such as photos, applications and even full HD movies. And just like what’s happening in the laptop market, flash drives these days are getting smaller in size but are getting bigger in terms of capacity.
