Any recommendations for a 32GB flashdrive/memory stick?

You can buy a budget 32Gb from Play.com for just £18, while "quality" brands (Corsair, Sony) are around £50. Depends on how reliable you want it to be, and how fast you need it to read/write. If you are going to use it as your vital backup drive, or you want to copy big files often, it's probably worth spending that bit more. I can recommend Sony vaults - never had any probs and they are fast - but I also use cheapo sticks for some stuff. Bear in mind that a £50 stick will probably cost £25 by the end of the year!

I bought an Integral 32 GB USB drive through Amazon some time back and it seems okay.

Forgot to say, do you have a usb3 socket? If so and speed is important (big files or in a hurry) it's worth considering a usb3 stick (should be 3 times faster than usb2) otherwise don't!
