Patriot Xporter Magnum 128GB Capacity Ultra-Fast Flash Drive

Updated on September 29, 2010

 

Large capacity flash drives solve the problem of backing up large amounts of data, digital photos or videos onto a single device. Imagine having 128GB capacity in the space of an inch or two and at a weight of barely more than a half ounce. In addition to saving space and weight the Patriot Xporter Magnum 128GB Flash Drive saves time. Designed to read data at the speed of 200X (translates to approximately 32MB per second) and writes data at approximately 20MB per second it is receives the designation of an ultra-fast flash drive.

Many of us may not have the concept of how fast the Patriot Xporter really is. To further explain – 1024MB (megabytes) is approximately 1GB (Gigabytes) so a full 128GB hard drive can be backed in approximately 1.5 hours (give or take a few minutes). Backing up your data is so important. Much of the backup can be accomplished while you eat dinner so there is no good excuse to skip it.

 What types of files can be saved on a flash drive? Any type of file can be saved to a flash drive. In order to use the files on a different computer the corresponding software has to be installed on that computer. For example, my Word documents can be viewed and edited on any computer that has Microsoft Word or other compatible software that can read the .doc extension. The same is true for digital photos with the JPEG extension which is common to most any computer. PDF files are popular for this very reason – the software to read them is free and has been downloaded to most computers.

Why would you want to backup your files to a Patriot Xporter Magnum flash drive (or any other flash drive you own)? Portability is a huge advantage. Files can travel between home and office with relative ease. Files can be accessed directly from the flash drive, edited on the flash drive and resaved to the flash drive. This process cuts down on any confusion between which files is the latest version. While visiting friends and family you can show off your digital photos and if you wish - transfer some photos to their computer.

 

 

Last but not least – remember that it is a good idea to backup the flash drive just as you would a hard drive. This task can be accomplished in several ways. Slit the files onto several smaller capacity flash drives. Digital photos can be saved to one flash drive while your work files can be saved to a separate flash drive. You could purchase a second high capacity flash drive such as the Patriot Xporter Magnum and copy the files to it via your computer. I have a folder on my desktop that my flash drive files are copied to. After a few weeks I replace the files on my computer with the updated files from my flash drive. This is the way I have multiple copies of important files both at home and in my bag wherever I go.
