It became known why important files should not be stored on a flash drive for a long time

Many people have been saving files on USB flash drives for years. At first glance, this approach is absolutely correct.

After all, why use a flash drive if not to save important information? However, the real purpose of the device may surprise many users.

It turns out that a USB flash drive is not intended for long-term data storage at all.

How to use a flash drive correctly

< p>The device has only one purpose – transfer information from one device to another.

For example, you need to copy a file with a movie, presentation or text document from your own computer to someone else's. In a similar situation, a flash drive will come to the rescue.

However, it is definitely not necessary to use a USB flash drive to store important information for months or years.

It is possible that a flash drive will cope with this task, and the user will retain access to the files after 5-10 years.

But it's still not worth the risk. There is a high risk that the drive will simply fail.

It is better to keep important files on an external hard drive or cloud storage.
