I plan on using a Flash drive to back up my computer. How large should I get one? 128GB? 256GB? or smaller?
I don't know why you are thinking so small. I would get the largest one available. Better yet, get an external hard drive.
Oh, they make flash drives that big these days? I would recommend an external hard disk too. Find out what you want to copy onto the hard drive and determine the space you need accordingly.
Right-click folders and select properties to see the size, add it all up to know what you need.
