Using USB Memory To Back Up
I have an old laptop running Slackware 9.1 which has no CD writer or floppy drive. In order to be able to back up, I have bought a 128Mb USB pen drive, so I can copy files to the drive and transfer them to my main PC.
Upon transferring files to the drive, they seem to be instantly marked as executable and the icon shown for the file in Rox-Filer, my file manager of choice, changes.
Is this a fault in Rox, or is it related to the USB drive? Do I need to format the drive in some way to ensure that the relevant information is preserved?
