I was in a predicament a few months ago when a friend of mine called me telling me he had a virus on his computer and Petey had my laptop in Washington D.C. doing a job down there so I had to find the simplest way to help my buddy. I stopped at the Staples in Frederick and saw these PNY Mini Attaché USB 2.0 Flash Drive P-FD 4GB/MINI-EF and I grabbed me one at $6.99.

Right off the bat I saw what I needed the most, a place to put it on my key ring for future calls. When I got home I uploaded the latest Combofix on it along with SpyBot Search and Destroy, then the new AD-Aware, NCleaner, and couple of my own select programs. After I loaded it all up and then can this 4gb drive a name. With all my programs loaded I removed the viruses in a hour, hived his registry then ran my cleaner on it I was done. But on the way back I stopped and got three 2 packs of these USB 2.0 PNY Mini Attaché and during the next couple days I was putting all my music that I have stored on my computers just in case of the worst scenario.
With another one I used for my photos and videos which is really nice. Then I got on my work computer and uploaded 12 years of filing records, bills and contracts on another. Another nice thing about this drives is there is no cap to take off all you do is push to the left and it comes off its cover with a easy push, then just slide it in your computer. I was able to put my whole Ubunto programs and files from Linux Operating system on one stick. With another stick I put on all my reviews on it. So it does not matter it will work with both Windows and Mac.
Just to give you a quick idea, I put close to 1,000 photos on one stick and over 300 songs on another with room for more. It saves on emailing contracts if your customers have printers. The other day I uploaded contract forms on it and went to 5 customers. I had them print out two contracts sign them and hand me a check so what could have taken a month to do cost me the money of gas to go there, but in the long run physical contact with the customer is better because some do have questions about service and what not and I cleared that up with a face to face conversation.
Those of you who takes work home with you this is a perfect set up for you to do your work and just upload it when your done and bring your presentation or whatever and download it at work. This flash memory drive is 2.3 inches long and 0.6 thick.. You can put it anywhere but one of mine with all my virus programs is on my key ring. the others are taped with what's on them in my desk and my music stick is in my media computer. Overall I love the simplicity of this flash drive because it's compatible for both Windows and Linux. Even interchanging from Window to Linux on the same stick is priceless, just need to have your Linux machine in Windows convert. You can't beat it for the price of $6.99 for one or 2 pack deal for $11.00 dollars.
