I need transfer important data from one PC to another. The data amount is
not large: portions near 120 -150MB. Using FTP is not
conveniently since there are slow internet connection.
Is the copying data into flash memory (removable drive) reliable way for
short keeping(up to 24h) and transfering data? I need transfer my data
without any changing - byte-to-byte. What is more reliable way, flash memory
or write data into CDROm?


Thanks

You got lots of answers (and the answer is "yes") in the other group to
which you posted this question. Please don't multipost; crosspost
judiciously if you must.
