Best 1GB flashdrive to use to backup data on a notebook.

by Big Steve / January 18, 2007 5:14 PM PST

For a first time user who knows little about this; what's the best brand of a 1GB flashdrive to use to backup data on a notebook computer? The data I'll be backing up is Quicken; not much data right now. I prefer something not too expensive but at the same time something that will last and not break tomorrow.

Did you mean to say Office Depot when you said Home Depot? Thanks for the link and your post.

We sell a lot of networking stuff. We had a Belkin 350 VA UPS for fifty-nine bucks a couple of weeks ago. Had to buy it.

Apart from cosmetics and bundled software, I have found that there is little difference between the big names, like Sandisk and Lexar, and all the others. I have various brands of models from over 5 years ago that work just fine. Just treat them nicely.
