Question: Many people have asked me this question at school and I would like to know the correct, technical answer. What is a jump drive?
The IT Guy says:
As far as I know, people today are using various terms to describe small USB devices that are used for removable computer file storage. These devices are sometimes called â€œthumb drives,â€ â€œflash drives,â€ "jump drives," or â€œkey drives.â€ These devices can generally store much more data than a floppy disk, and as long as the computer has an open USB port, jump drives typically will â€œjust workâ€ with current operating systems like Windows XP and Macintosh OS X. Lots of good deals are available online for jump drives / key drives. One source with many available products is Everything USB.
