What is the purpose of USB drive?
USB flash stick drives are often used for storage, data back-up and transferring of computer files. Compared with floppy disks or CDs, they are smaller, faster, have significantly more capacity, and are more durable due to a lack of moving parts.
How reliable are USB flash drives?
USB flash drives can withstand between 10,000 to 100,000 write/erase cycles, depending on the memory technology used. When the limit is reached, some portion of the memory may not function properly, leading to loss of data and corruption.
Life Expectancy of a USB Flash Drive
USB flash drives are great to use for storing digital files and are replacing CDs & DVDs as the preferred storage media of choice.
The advantages of flash drives is that they are portable, durable, and have incredible storage capacity. Furthermore, they can retain the memory even after the power is turned off. But does the memory last forever though? Should you use them to store important documents and files? How long do they last?
If you simply write data to a USB flash drive and put it away in a safe place for 10 years, it will work again, and all the data will still be there.
But if you continue to use it repeatedly, it will wear out eventually.
