I read a high capacity thumb drive can be used just as effectively as an external hard drive (you recommended seagate on your recommended product page). The article said that you delete the ssd and format it to the apple os extended journal just as you would with the seagate backup device.
What do you think and would you recommend? Samsung and Scandisc make a 128 GB and even higher capacity memory. It would probably be easy to take it and put it in your pocket in case of an emergency.
