What is a USB Flash Drive?

A USB Memory Stick or Flash Drive is a small device that is capable of holding massive amounts of data. To use a USB memory stick you simply plug the drive into a spare USB port on your computer then it shows as an available drive for you to copy information to. They are perfect for storing and sharing documents, pictures, music and pretty much any other data you need to transfer.

The main benefits of using a USB Memory Stick over an external hard drive are the increased portability, higher resistance to shock that often causes data loss in external hard drives and no need for an external power adapter like some larger external hard drives require.
