Dear Doctor Murhpy
Being a USB thumb drive newbie, I'd like to know how long you think they
would last ?
I've heard some UCCans brazenly use them as a live file system and I
thought they'd be a a lump of refined sand after a shortish time.
If I use my thumb cautiously for backups and file exchange, how long
should it last ?
If I use my thumb with disregard of it's finite flashiness, when should
I be buying a new one ?
But most importantly, how can I tell that my thumb is beginning to wear
out (I use Linux and should know better) ?
