You could pay every month for access to your files. As long as you have an internet connection… And you’re okay with companies having unlimited access to your files…Or you could just get one of these fucking things???Most people don’t need any of the features that come with cloud storage services. Usb drives are like ten bucks for 128 gb and it’s not a subscription that locks you out of your data if you stop paying.I don’t get why people use that shit unless they’re forced to by an employer. Even for sharing files, just use FileZilla or some shit.
>>92171334USB drives can randomly die on you or get misplaced. Data loss is technically a problem with cloud storage too, but it's much less likely to happen.
>>92171334Curious shape for such a device
I went to college at the time when USB drives were too new for Windows to have drivers for them, and floppy disks were too small so I had to use Yahoo briefcase to transfer files from college to home.
i only upload files to jewgle or anything else if i wish to share it with other people
>>92171334>>92171721I've had that exact 32 GB flash drive for over a decade.Likewise, I still have 64-256 KB drives from the 90s that are still running fine.The only ones that have gone bust have failed in the first couple of days of usage, not suddenly after many years.
>>92171721I have never had those issues with a usb drive. They tend to include holes so you can put them on a keychain. There are also carriers for them.If you are using a usb to transfer files, you will never have an issue with a drive failing. Not that one has ever failed on me to begin with. It would be a dumb idea to work from a usb drive, you should be copy-pasting your files from your usb drive to your machines. So you have backups everywhere and you never lose much work.
cheapest blurays and dvds are the most reliable storagedisc rot is just false advertising to sell overpriced m-discs
Just encrypt your files before uploading
you are basically giving the cops a reason to suspect you if you have encrypted files on your drive
>>92173453They're still not gonna be able to decrypt it.
Can i plug one into my phone? Phones need an easy way to transfer data that does not require app or internet connectionI was looking though my photos, i have some dating back to 2006 but majority come in 2019+ when i discovered syncthing and was easily able to move my photos from my phone to my desktop. But even that has limits unless you run your own server.
>>92173754Yes of course. It's very easy to do this. You simply use a cheap adapter to plug the usb drive into your phone.

>>92172808>KBDamn what are you storing?text files?
>>92171902I was in college then too, but I guess our school had a better budget for tech, we used Zip disks. 100 MB. only problem was if you accidentally formatted your disk as hfs and had to use one of the Dells.
>>92171721Can the jews lock you out of using your USB drive at any moment, though?
>>92171334>comparing local storage to cloud storage>lolwutThrow more harddrives in your computer for more storage?? Guess you're a zoomer conflating being able to share files easily with cloud storage, but yeah use shit you own and use files, you're on the right track.
>>92171334>copy 5GB file>4 days remaining
>>92171334>3 PHYSICAL copies locally, 1 being off-site>one cloud-based backup with a service that won't cuck you for encrypting your data, like AWS S3
>>92173754otg cable isn't that much money and will allow you to plug in other usb devices into your phone. Keep in mind some older versions of android don't support USB peripherals.
USB NEVER DIESUSB NEVER DIESI've not seen a good USB-C version of these flash drives ever
>>92171721sorry retard, this shit only happens if you're a brain damaged faggot, bitch. fuck off back to your iphone, dumb fuck.
>>92171334Files cannot be deleted from flash memory.
>>92182463they can be deleted and overwritten
>>92182475But you can't be sure data has been overwritten.
>>92182519you dumb or something of course you can verify that by analyzing the binary of the device
>>92182548>he thinks the retained data is accessible through LBAs
Man this board is fucking retarded
>92182443So much anger coming from an animu poster.
>>92173352>sell overpriced m-discs>me who backs up animation projects to m-discs;_;At least my data will last 1000 years when I'm a brain in a robot...They're not too much expensive I think. I think I payed like $20 for 5, and still haven't filled them up. Really useful for storing single frames of animations.
>>92183454>20$ for 5 m-discs when it's 20$ for 50 regular ones
oh you probably mean the bdxl discs. never mind
