- Apr 7, 2004Another less expensive option, would be one of those new pocket USB drives.
I forget their technical name, but I think you can get them up to 128 MB,
probably bigger, and they plug into any USB drive. They are not much bigger
than the plug on one end of a USB cable and have a cover with a clip to put
in your front pocket. If both PCs have USB ports, I think this should meet
the needs for grabbing your files and data off the old PC. I think prices
are about $30 for 64 MB. With the near ubiquity of USB, this may be the
thing that can finally replace the floppy. This is really important since
more PCs are being made without floppy drives.
I plan to get one to save having to email stuff between work and home.
