Your Guide to USB Drives

USB DriveUSB drives provide a convenient way to back up your data and move it between PCs. USB drives can either use flash memory (typical for the USB thumb drives), or can store their data on a traditional hard disk that has an external enclosure.

This guide will show you how to use a USB drive, how to fix some common errors you may encounter with one, how to secure your data these drives, and how to boot from a USB drive.
