USB Flash - age

Recommended Posts

Does anyone worry about the age of a flash?  It occurs to me I'm still on my original, of 12 years.   Not any parts to break but still.  


A USB 3 might load and update faster.   Yes/no? 


Any good suggestions for a robust, USB 3 flash?  Plenty out there, but I know they need to have a digital ID number to work with Plex.

The difference is just a few seconds during the bot sequence.  The rest of the time there will be no noticeable difference, and USB2 has proved more reliable than USB3.  It would not hurt to have a spare ready but no rush to replace the current flash drive if it keeps working.   Just make sure you have a backup (particularly of the config folder) in case the current one ever fails.
