Do not backup on a thumb/flash drive. Flash drives have a limited read/write cycle and are notorious for crashing. They are meant for transfer of data, not long term storage.

"Do not backup on a thumb/flash drive"

I've had mine 7 or 8 years.

"The results The good news: all 3 drives handled more writes than they were spec'd for. For example, the cheap generic drive handled 77 million writes before failing.

Even better news: the premium Memorex drive did not break! FWIW they predicted failure after 60,000,000,000 writes - they just didn't have time to do that many"

John, I've got about 6 or 7 of them and in the 5 or 6 years I've had them I've only had one go bad myself. Personally I've had a good track record with them

However, if you look at the hundreds of posts in here with people complaining about their drives going south, I wouldn't chance data being lost on them.

Fair enough THX 1138, even if it is a temporary measure, cause as you can see, the OP hasn't done anything. I'm sure the > backup netscape 7.1 email < link I gave him, has others ways.
