    Picked as best answer

    It depends on the size of the 8000 name list.

    The determine the size right click on the file.
    Then go to properties.
    Once the properties window opens you will be able to see the size of the file.
    As long as it is less than 8gb it will fit. (The actual size of the usable space on the drive will be less than 8gb.)

    Assuming each name was 200 characters (which is pretty generous) your list would be somewhere around 1.6 MB.

    Your 8GB flash drive (which equals about 8192MB) can hold over 5,000 copies of your list.

    Assuming this is just a plan text list of people’s names, you’d probably even be able to get it to find on a old 3.5″ Diskette.
