Flash drives connect to computers and other devices via an integrated USB Type-plug plug-in, making a flash drive a device that combines USB and cable.
Flash disks are commonly known as pen drives, USB drives, or jump drives. USB drive and SSD drive terms are also used occasionally, but most of the time refer to USB storage devices that are larger and not portable.
How to use Flash drive
To use a flash drive, insert the drive into the free USB port on your computer.
On most computers, you will be notified that the flash drive has been inserted and that the drive’s contents will appear on the screen, just as other drives on your computer appear when you browse the file.
What happens when you use the flash drive depends on your Windows or another operating system and configure the computer.
Flash Drive size available
Most flash drives have storage capacities between 8 GB and 64 GB. Smaller and larger flash drives are also available, but they are harder to find.
One of the first flash drives was only 8 MB. The most significant memory I know of is a USB flash 3.0 drive with a capacity of 1 TB (1024 GB).

Flash drives can be written and rewritten almost an unlimited number of times, just like hard drives.
Flash drives have completely replaced floppy drives for portable storage, and see how big and cheap flash drives are, even replacing CDs, DVDs, and BDs for data storage purposes.
