Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Corsair Flash Survivor Drive. I bought my first one of these over 7 years ago and I love this tool as much today as I ever have. This thing is built like a tank, I mean it will protect your data.
It is so well made it makes a pretty decent stealth impact weapon. I broke a one inch pine board with a hammer fist using it and it didn’t mar the finish.
This is what you need to keep a back up of all your important emergency data. Phone numbers, account numbers, etc. To make your drive secure just password protect any important documents and you are good to go.
We have all gotten to the point of relying on our cell phones for so much of our data. It makes sense but two is one and one is none. And to make this tool even more versatile just install the free version of LibreOffice Portable on it. So when you want to open that spread sheet and the PC you have access to doesn’t have excel, you just won’t care.
What you may want to do is take a way back ride on TSP today and put together a documentation package. You can learn about that all the way back in episode 148 “Bug Out Planning and Documentation” and build a binder for all vehicles and one for the house but keep the soft copy on a USB drive like this.
In that episode I give you simple ways to protect things like credit card and bank account numbers. Where you will always be able to get to your numbers but anyone getting possession of your drive would find them worthless, even if they did get the document to open. I will give you info on how to password protect a document in the PS below.
Anyway I feel we should all have a back up of important files, photos, etc beyond our phones and “the cloud”. When I got my first Corsair Flash Survivor Drive 16GB was the largest size you could get, it is now available in up to 256GB, which is a LOT of space. I have the 128 GB one and still have plenty of space.
