Titles, I do like to make good representative ones. Anyway depending upon the IT type you speak to then USB drives have a limited amount of time they live for. My 64 gig one is at the point where I do not want to rely on it to work when I get somewhere/store something that would be annoying to lose when I got somewhere so I thought I would ask others what their experiences are. I do also have a 4 gig supposedly kingston one (I have since seen the shell get used by other things) I got in mid 2010 and has been a rock solid workhorse ever since -- documents, small files, drivers, PC fixing tools... the lot. It has been everywhere with me, on planes, on trains, on boats, that one time I got launched into space and in my pocket throughout it all. I had a bunch of them once but sold them, kind of wish I had not now.
