You know, when I was packing for our move a few months back, one of the things I noticed was that I have amassed an amazing number of thumb drives over the years, of all sizes. Once upon a time I did have a number of tools on thumb drives that helped me do trouble shooting or boot to an OS so I could recover files and what not, but that was a long time ago, when I did a lot more tech support type stuff. While I was traveling, thumb drives were a great way to make sure I had backups of important files, or could use a portable program no matter where I was, but that probably won’t be as necessary. I’m going to keep this handy though, and spend some time thinking about having an emergency thumb drive though. You never know when it might be needed.
