I have a couple of portable 1 TB USB drives that I use
data storage that are beginning to fill up. (They've
half-way mark.) I've got my eye on some 5 TB
alternatives to replace
them. However while the 1 TB units draw their current
off the USB
port, all the 5 TB units I'm looking at require an
supply. Devices that require external power supplies
are by definition
non-portable. Is the problem that a 5 TB USB drive that
current off the USB port is technically impossible or
is it just that
no one's got round to making one yet and therefore I
should wait a
The confusion is over the difference betweeen a "drive"
and a "memory
stick". A drive has a spinning magnetic disc inside on
which the data
is stored magnetically. A memory stick is a solid state
(no motor no
magnetic disc) flash memory, which is a solid state
device, designed to write one/read many times.
It's hell being a computer engineer and having to
explain this stuff
all the time to an ignorant puiblic! But it's OK, that's

Now I've tried to be nice to you since you have a
debilitating mental illness, but if you're going to be an
ass about things...You shouldn't make fun of people when
your knowledge is so out of date. Yes, WORM drives/memory
are still around. But most Thumb Drives are WMRM. Also, in
the era of Virtual Machines, Solid State Drives and
Storage Area Networks, the distinction among Memory/"Disk"
Storage/Aux Storage is largely determined by use - not the
technology implemented. My current computer has "Drives",
but they're all solid state. They are memory that is used
as drives by the OS. They are not USB, and are assumed to
always be available. Memory or "drives" attached by USB
are considered transient, but not necessarily WORM. The
servers I work on are all VM and have no real drives. They
are connected to a SAN that has a combination of solid
state, fast disk and slow disk. The SAN determines where
the data goes. You are no more a Computer Engineer than I
am a High School Senior.
once - a long time ago. Besides, you just worked a Help
Desk. Poorly. Has your RN License lapsed yet? If so,
you're not a nurse either. If not, how DID you manage that
and will I be able to look it up? Your work history is so
spotty and I can't imagine you're keeping up with your
Cont. Ed. requirement.
Be a lot less snotty on here.
Um, no, I've worked in computers as a help desk

Then most recently I achieved a Bachelor's degree in
nursing, and then
passed the NCLEX-RN exam in Missouri, making me a BSN-RN

You do a good job of explaining why you SHOULD know what
you're talking about. Why, then, do you not know what you're
talking about (as I pointed out)?

standing. So I dug a little further and found the following.
