Create a tech support USB drive for your toolbox

Don’t let your spare USB drives go to waste! Use them to prepare for disaster and turn them into toolkits that might one day save your neck.

USB jump drives are a dying breed. As the process of transferring data becomes increasingly wireless, many are left with underutilized USB drives crammed into drawers.

Anti-virus, anti-spyware, operating system (OS) installs, and file recovery: all of these options and more are available on your thumb drive. That is if you make use of it. Read on to turn your spare USB into a geek utility belt!
