- Portable Storage Guide

If you're on the lookout for a portable means of data storage, there's certainly plenty of options these days with the most obvious being that of your usual USB flash drive (and even those come in quite an assortment of sizes and models). HardCOREware take a closer look at some of the best means of portable storage on the market today, including 3.5/2.5" hard drive enclosures, usb 2.0 flash drives, and also Seagate's rather unique 5GB "PocketDrive".

When I set out to write a Portable Storage Guide for the end of 2004 (by the way, these things make great gifts!), I thought I had a good idea on the subject matter. Things have changed since the days of having to wire up a pair of systems with a crossover ethernet cable, or burn to CD's whenever you need to transport data. There are now many different solutions to transfer almost as much data as you want.

The first devices that came to my mind were the obvious - USB flash drives that were all the rage to give out as freebies at tradeshows a couple years ago. They have matured quite a bit since those days - they are now available in USB2.0, with capacities as high as 2GB.
