USB drives are small, portable flash memory cards that can be plugged into USB port of a computer system and act as a portable hard drive. USB drives are more popular because of their features like they are small enough to be carried easily and also easy to use.

USB drives are also called as jump drives, thumb drives, pen drives, tokens or simply USB flash drives. The main advantage of storing data inside USB drives is they are preformatted with file system architectures (such as FAT 12, FAT 16 and FAT 32) and can also be defragmented like that of the internal drives.
