Thank you for your reply.
It's not really static protection I'm looking for, as that would be really difficult. Protecting from a few hundred thousand volts with almost no current...
But rather protection from an under or over voltage situation when plugged into a bad USB port.
I would be surprised to learn that none of these expensive, ultra weather proof 'lifetime warranty drives haven't included some kind of simple circuit reset?
Every time it happens I lose the data. And it's quite common as most computers in use are older, and older solder joints don't hold up.
