Latest pen Drives, USBs in Indian
 Written By Dipti Prasad Padhi
 
It’s been briefly 10 years when pen drives or USB drives are launched in the market to replace the floppy and compact disks. Compact disks first replaced the floppy drive as floppy drive as a device has minimal data storing capacity and then the CDs though have good data storing capacity it was not convenient for the users those who wanted to erase data on a regular basis to store new data. Though the writable CDs were available in the market they were costlier then the usual Cds and there was no guarantee about how many writes are allowed, these writable cds have short life span, hence they are no user friendly.
Looking at the loopholes of the compact disks USBs are far more convenient, they are popularly named as Data traveler, key drive or flash drive. Do you know most USB drives allow approximately 1 million writes and it can store data up to 10 years? Now when they were launched in the market with a storing capacity of 1 GB it seemed huge for the users but slowly as the users needed more space in their flash drives, manufacturers started to expand the storage capacity.  Now interestingly various data travelers from 2 GB to even 256 Gb capacity are available for the users.
