UBS drives and mini storage solutions have all been big hits. In parts of the world where having your own PC is a luxury, mini drives are essential. The ability to carry your own files just makes sense even if you own your PC. If moving between systems is something you do daily, and they are not networked, portable storage drives make a great deal of sense.
Over the evolution of the PC there are have been a slew of storage solutions. Zip drives, assorted diskettes and CD rewritables, all of these have been around to address the issue of storage. Usually, size, space and simply the ability of the device to work well in multi computer environments have caused problems. Factor in size, interoperability and performance and you start to see where many past solutions fall short.
