The great thing about USB flash drives is that they’re tiny, so you can bring your data everywhere. The scary thing about USB flash drives is that they’re tiny, so you can lose your data anywhere. If you’ve ever temporarily—or permanently—misplaced a flash drive, you’ll appreciate the clever new 4GB SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus, which comes with a free six-month subscription (after that, it’s $29.99 per year) to BeInSync, a dedicated online backup service that works with Windows computers (the flash drive itself will work with Macs as a basic storage device, minus the BeInSync uplink). The seamless online mirroring means that it’s helpful not just in case of loss, but also when you’re simply forgetful. Like, if you leave the Cruzer at home, but you need it at the office, you can still access the files on it by logging into your BeInSync account.
