What is a good flash drive for a 10 year old to use to bring Word and Power Point documents back and forth to school?

Q: Need a small flash drive for my 10 year old son to bring word and power point documents back and forth to school. I does not have to be big. What is the difference in brands or types of flash drive. Is one safer or more reliable?

    Picked as best answer

    More or less any flash drive you purchase should work. You can buy them from staples or even local Walmart.

    If you are looking to just transfer a handful of files a drive as small as 512MB should be sufficient. It should also cost only around $5-$15.

    If you look online for a flash drive that can be had for the same price with more storage. sites like http://www.newegg.com is a great place to look.

    If you are looking for a drive that is child proof they also make ones that are rubber and can withstand quite a beating.

    Additionally, make sure your son keeps his files backed up, it’s pretty easy to lose a flash drive, and even the best ones can get corrupt and lose a paper.

    Might want to consider a http://www.dropbox.com account or something similar as a backup if that’s available within the school’s firewall.
