Re: Old fashion
However, you should never plug an unknown USB in without a hardware writeblock....ever. Agree with this as well. If you found a ISB drive not worth to plug in to your computer.

Yeah, now they are at the point where they can hold a TB of data. They are smal and lightweight and much faster transfer times then cloud. However, you should never plug an unknown USB in without a hardware writeblock....ever.
