USB Drives Troubleshooting Removable Storage

For over a decade, the PC industry has been looking for a serious replacement for the floppy disk. The physical vulnerability of floppy disks makes them unsuitable for transporting data and for long-term storage. The USB Flash Drive provides a solid-state technology that is far less vulnerable to damage and also has a capacity many times greater than a 3.5-inch floppy disk. In addition, the PC industrys universal adoption of the USB (Universal Serial Bus) interface standard makes it possible to take your files round to a friends house and be confident that you can plug your Flash Drive straight in, without any further software installation. This article will discuss different types of Flash Drives. It will also help you to solve the most common Flash Drive related problems, including the inability to access data on your Flash Drive or the corruption of files on your Flash Drive.
