Using a USB flash drives on daily basis is not an uncommon thing in this digital era. Even when data kept in them aren't as important as it seems, we may not realise and appreciate the value of USB flash drives until you've lost the data by accident - both physically or "technologically" (is that even a word?)
Fortunately there are some things that you can do to help prolong lifespan of your tiny storage device. Below are our simple tips to keep your USB memory data safer.
Two things that you need to remember, make sure your computer disconnect the USB before you remove it physically from USB port. Remember, the icon "Safely Remove Hardware" is there for a reason. This is the only proper way to shut connection down between your computer and the USB and ensure there is no damage or lose data happening.
Prevent fall where possible. Add lanyard, key chain, string, and keep it nicely attached to your backpack, purse, around your neck etc to prevent loss or damage. Just Also keep the cap on if you have one, dirt can easily get trapped.
c) Back up
Goes without saying - its always better to have extra backups in case you are out of luck.
