Picture Storage, flash drive or external hard drive? Tags: Flash Media Storage Flash Drive External Hard Drive Last response: August 1, 2012 8:47 AM in Storage Share yang0409 July 27, 2012 4:42:25 AM I was thinking of getting an external flash drive for storing pictures but I was advised it's not a good idea. I'm wondering then, for this purpose is it better to use a flash drive instead?
