Blog How to back up music, images and documents to a USB Flash Drive

Here at Flashbay, one question we are often asked is how to back up files from a desktop computer or laptop onto a USB Flash Drive. Whilst this process is somewhat manual, it could not be simpler:

  1. Insert the USB Flash Drive into the USB slot of your computer or laptop

  2. If you’re using Windows, go to “My Computer” and select “FLASH DRIVE”

  3. Either: select and copy the files on your computer that you wish to back up; then paste these files onto the USB Flash Drive

    Or: select the files you wish to copy from your computer and drag them onto the USB Flash Drive window

  4. Safely remove your USB Flash Drive. That’s it!
A USB Flash Drive will last at least 10 years, much longer if it is made from the same high-quality parts that we use here at Flashbay and if you look after the Flash Drive properly, such as storing it in a cool, dry place where it won’t get damaged. Combine the longevity and the portability of a USB Flash Drive and it is little wonder that they continue to be the storage device of choice for millions of people around the world.
