On travel I never carry more than I need. My new portable drive is this with a 32GB card in it.
Yes I dropped it and it still works.
I recently lost a great deal of media due to a crashed Western Digital 1TB passport. A tech-savvy friend says the drive seems like it was mechanically damaged- grinding sound on start up, and the drive is not recognized when attached to my laptop. The drive is less than a year old, and I have NEVER dropped it, or handled the drive carelessly.
