Flash drives are useful little gadgets because they’re small which means that taking it with you on the go is easy. Some are small enough to fit into pockets and on keychains, but the problem with being so small is that they can be easily stolen, lost, or misplaced. This can be disastrous if you have sensitive information on it.
