Thoughts on mini USB storage

Can anyone suggest a good reason to not just get a few TB (Kingston makes them, and they aren't cheap) Flash drives to make all my backup EXTREMELY portable?

The only thing I would say is to still have a proper external drive. Flash drives are easy enough to drown or drop or even loose all together.

Price for one, but if that isn't an issue for you, I want your disposable income. A TB flash drive is over $1,000, and you want a few of them... :shock:

Other than SanDisk and Corsair, I've not had the best of luck with USB jump drives. Some just go bad randomly and it's rare to retrieve the data from them.
