Flash drives, also known as thumb drives, are one of the most useful storage tools for computer users. With a vast range of storage capacities, from less than 8GB to 256GB and more, these devices support the file needs of all types of users. Choose 256GB flash drives to benefit from their incredible amount of storage space, which is large enough to back up vast file collections. Choose from options with fast USB 3.0 technology, encryption features and secure storage mechanisms.

How Much Data Do You Need to Store?

Though 256GB is a lot of data, with the extensive amount of media computer users store in the form of digital music and movie collections and massive high-resolution photo libraries, this size may fit your needs. Those with businesses can store large Excel worksheets and marketing presentation files without concern about running out of space. If storing music and photos, consider that a 256GB drive can hold more than 32,000 8MB MP3 files and more than 26,000 10MB raw image files, with the ability to store more files if they are of a smaller size.

Transfer Files Quickly with a 256GB Flash Drive

USB 3.0 technology is available in almost all 265GB flash drives at Staples, so users can transfer files as much as 10 times faster than with a 2.0 flash drive, with speeds that may include up to 185MB per second read and 135MB per second write times. These speeds accommodate users who need to backup files immediately for personal or business reasons, and they are fast enough to transfer a full-length movie of about 1.2GB in less than 40 seconds. Even if you don’t have a USB 3.0 drive in your computer, the devices are backwards-compatible and will work with USB 2.0 ports.

Secure Data with Protective Mechanisms

An extra level of protection is important to anyone who is backing up their files or systems or who wants to be assured that their documents are safe. Choose a 256GB USB 3.0 flash drive that incorporates 128-bit encryption and password protection software. This software allows you to create a password-protected folder that is automatically encrypted, safeguarding the files from theft. To alleviate the risk of deletion or corruption, users should opt for recovery software that will retrieve deleted or damaged files, including images, videos, music and documents. Some security systems also offer the option to securely delete files that are removed from the vault, so there’s no risk that they will get into the wrong hands.

Choose an Appealing Design

With so many flash drive designs available, you can choose one that with the look and features that you want. For a drive that is easily attached to a keychain or backpack, choose one with an integrated loop. To eliminate concerns about losing the cap, choose a swivel or sliding capless design that ensures the drive is protected while on the go. A gray, black or white color scheme presents a sleek and professional appearance that's suitable for corporate environments.
