I know many of you might have several, but what is the size of the one you use for everything?

What do you generally store on it?

I only have it up to 32GB, assuming most of you can't afford 32GB's

I have a 16GB, 4GB, two 2GB, and a couple single GB's here and there. The price for the 16GB was 31$, but I received a 20$ rebate on it, so it really only cost me 11$. Unaware of great USB deals on the internet, I bought my first 2GB at Wal-Mart for 20$ a few years ago, which was a complete rip off. NEVER buy USB drives from chain stores, they are always overpriced.

I store everything on my 16GB, but since it has a great deal of space, its primary use is to hold games or software. I carry the 2500$ Adobe CS4 Master's Collection on it just in case I ever encounter someone I'm working with that says "I would create a logo for our project, but I can't afford Photoshop!", well guess what, BAM, copy over the CS4 directory, bitch. Yeah, larger ones come in handy sometime. Besides the chunky files, I carry your usual papers and lab write-ups that I know I'll never use again in my life but I still refuse to delete them (I even have crap from last semester, but I'm too stubborn to erase them). I also have a bunch of random .swf's just for those emergencies when you come in contact with a computer or laptop with no internet or games. You can always pretend you're on the internet by playing a bunch of flash games, eh?

So tell me..how big, and how do you use it?

1GB, for school and emulation. It's sadly small. :(

2x4GB and 256MB.
latter is obsolete, but was basically what I have now in a more conservative manner. Former has... 3D stuff, programming stuff, pixel art for when I'm bored, any writing papers I need to work on, some music, and random stuff.

I used to have a 32GB, but the fuckering thing got broken for no apparent reason ...

8GB cruzer. Just got it last night, but I already stuffed it with programs I need for Architectural purposes. Some hacking tools might be hidden in there too ^^

ALL PRAISE YOUR SUPREME LORD CORBO

I HAVE A 16MB DELL USB, YEs, MB, WHAT NOW.

Uh, I have a 2GB one besides the 16mb one fo carry videos, models, and more stuff. I use it for uni/work. I need a bigger one, though, since I recently encountered that my portfolio is composed of images that are around 50-100mb. 300dpi :(



fuck you all

aka idmontie

I have two 1 GB, and two 512MB. One 1 GB is used for mods, the other is used for school and small programs. The 512 MB I don't use at all. O, and I have a porable .5 Terabyte harddrive, which I use for everything.

I don't get why someone would but a $160 thumbdrive when you can buy a terabyte for the same price.

It's not in flash drive form, but it is portable. The one I have needs an electric outlet, but I believe there is a version of a terabyte external hardrive that is the size of a book and needs two usb ports, but does not need an outlet.
