Jump Drive, Data Replication
A jump drive is also referred to as a USB drive. Other common names include flash drive, keychain drive, disk on key or P-drive; they are all plug-and-play portable storage devices that uses flash memory and small enough to fit on a key-chain, yet dangerous enough to lose then and any replicated data.
Jump drives are about the size of a pack of gum and can be used for a number purposes, including storage of documents such as pictures, work files and even databases. When the user plugs the device into a USB port, the operating system recognizes the device as removable storage and gives it a drive letter that you can access just like you would a floppy or CD.
Jump drives ranges in storage size and range from 512K to 4 Gigabytes! The bad part about these high capacity portable jump drives are their small size; the smaller the size, the easier it is to lose them and any confidential data you might have as well!
There is one free data replication software that you can download to protect your valuable information and itâ€™s called the Replicator! Data replication happens in real time and backups are encrypted, so if you lose your jump drive, another person will not be able to replication the data in any way!
Before you jump and buy one of these portable drives, download the replicator first!
