A USB Flash Drive is a small, portable flash memory card that plugs into a computer and functions as a portable hard drive. They store data like documents and photographs and are used to transfer information between computers or other devices with a USB port. They are touted as being easy-to-use as they are small enough to be carried in a pocket and can plug into any computer with a USB drive. USB flash drives also known just as flash drives, or as thumb drives, jump drives, pen drives, key drives, or memory sticks.
