USB Jump Drives
What are USB Jump Drives? They are small finger size portable USB data
storage drives. They are often called flash drives because they use flash memory technology for data storage. The USB
Jump drive plugs directly into a computer's USB port and works as a portable hard drive. You can
carry them in your pocket and travel anywhere with them.

USB flash drives have less storage capacity than an internal or external hard
drive. However, because they have no internal moving parts they are much more durable. They are the best laptop or
desktop computer accessory to have for extra storage for your application data documents. I personally own about 8
Jump drives that are used for my documents, internet downloads, document backups, videos and pictures from my
digital camera. I could not see myself living without any USB Jump Drives in my life today.
Judging by the quantity of USB Jump Drives on
the market, it is a good guess that they could very well be the computer hard drive replacement of the future.
Imagine a computer with no moving parts. Basically the internal computer hard drive is just about the last
mechanical part in a PC if you exclude the Cd/DVD drive and the computer cooling fans. The only thing stopping
that from happening today is the limit storage capacity of USB Jump Drives at the present time.
Today USB Jump Drives maximum storage capacity is 128gb
gigabyte. They will soon match or exceed hard drive storage capacity no doubt soon enough. Flash Drives have
already become the inspiration for innovation by major computer companies. So look for larger and larger storage
capacity on USB Jump Drives soon.
USB Jump Drives or Flash Drives data storage capacity available on the market at
the present time is: 512meg, 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, 8gb, 16gb, 32gb, 64gb and 128gb.
