Hi,

I have a 64GB USB flash drive, and since it would take a while before I get the SSD I ordered (my 1TB HDD died), right now I'm installing games on my USB Flash Drive. They work fine, but I'd like to know if I'm damaging the flash drive in any way.

Thank you.

Whatever you install your games on, they actually run in RAM when you are playing them, so you are not damaging your flash drive by installing them on it. However, don't assume that flash drives last forever, they may not have any moving parts but they still wear out or become corrupt eventually.

I don't think you are damaging your flash drive.
