- Durability- Usually, those hard drives inside our desktop computers and laptop computers are big and most of the time, made of hazardous materials which can even emit radiation. Those bulky hard disk drives can be easily damaged if dropped accidentally. A flash drive of today has basically no moving parts inside it and to some, it’s considered as a miniaturized solid-state drive which makes less defenceless to damage that can be caused by drops or shocks.
- Portability- While you can still carry around an external hard drive and connect it from one PC to another, nothing beats the portability a flash drive can give to its users. Nowadays, you can easily slip your trusty USB drive into your pocket without anyone noticing it. And, you can even attach it to your key chain which makes it easier to carry around. Some USB flash drives are bigger than the conventional ones but still small enough to be carried by your hand. And since they are both durable and portable, USB flash drives are just one of those things you can easily carry around on a daily basis.
- Capacity- One of the best benefits of using USB flash drives in today’s world, despite the emergence of SD cards, is the capacity a flash drive can carry in terms of file sizes. Believe it or not, some of the manufacturers of these tiny drives have upped their game, extending the memory capacity of some of their flash drives to a whopping 1 Terabyte.
