Are usb flashdrives reliable? have you ever had a bad experience about it?


Are usb flashdrives reliable? have you ever had a bad experience about it?
Just asking because I have a USB FLASHDRIVE (Twinmos) and my important files are stored in it.. and i have no duplicate files of it.. Do you think it's reliable?

I won't put my important files on a flash drive without having a backup... Although I think they're reliable, I only use it to transfer stuff from pc 2 pc when no network is available

I've never heard of a problem with them but if I were really concerned about a file I would have it in multiple locations... (on my hard drive, backed up on CD, emailed to myself, etc)
