As their capacities have grown, USB thumb drives have become the method of choice to transfer data between PCs for many consumers. Some have also started using them as backups for their hard drives.

The latest SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus flash drive takes the concept even one step further by making backups of its 4GB storage automatically to an online company, BeInSync. The $60 drive comes with six months of this online service, after which an annual fee of $30 is charged.

When the Cruzer is plugged into a connected machine, the contents are automatically synchronized both ways and the data can also be accessed via the Web site. According to BeInSync, communication to and from the device is secured using 256-bit SSL encryption to ensure that your private data remains private.
