    Do people actually use USB keys anymore?

    Between phones with GB’s of space, and people moving to cloud services, what do people keep on their keys? I can’t personally imagine using them for anything more than the occasional sneakernet, or last-minute “put this on the presentation machine: type situations.

    I certainly wold never keep any single-copy data on a USB key.

      @eClipse I still use mine on a regular basis for sneakernet type activities. I manage a training room at my day job and will often use USB keys to copy large software installations. Sometimes it’s faster to do that than access the files from our network…

    What happens when you use a USB 3.0 key drive on your machine with a USB 2.0 port? Obviously you’re not getting the full speed that 3.0 is capable of. But then, how fast?

    It’s limited to the speeds of USB 2.0 just like using a USB 2.0 device in a 1.0 slot. Still works, but slower.

    I use USB all the time. Especially one’s with a hardware write protect switch on them. If I have to stick it in a clients machine, I want it protected. Client machines are the digital equivalent of the red light district.
