memory sticks

  jarani 13:59 25 Sep 06

i need to come off my long suffering floppies and i am considering their replacement with the memory sticks

reliability is paramount - what should i be looking for ? there is a great variation in price online from £12 to £60 for a 1GB item

i want to keep the work off the computer hdd for security and mobility

any advice would be much appreciated - jarani

Virtually all USB drives these days are reliable. I have seen 1Gb drives for as little as £30, it is a buyers market, so look around to find the best you can for a fair price.

If you click here and click here you should get good examples of some of the best USB drives.

Remember though, just using one back up is really not best practice. You should also make a second back up of your most important data.

The price seemed quite reasonable and their delivery system has never let me down yet.

I always use Kingston memory sticks.

IMHO they are the dog's dangle bits of memory sticks. ;-))

or even 'dangly' bits

jackcoms - i got the picture, but looking at the options they have different facilities at greatly different prices - which spec do i need for adequate quality - they all carry a 5 year guarantee - jarani

"which spec do i need for adequate quality"

Like 1minute I use the Kingston DataTraveller II range.
