USB thumbdrives are not really suitable for backing up data. They have a shorter life span compared to other storage devices. They are also prone to virus infections especially if they are plugged into different computers. Thumbdrives are also easily misplaced because they are very small. You need to bring them with you if you need to access your data. If you forget to bring your thumbdrive, you need to go back and get it to access your files. If you are looking for a convenient method of storing files, you might want to look into an online file data storage service.
