This tiny flash drive is AWESOME!,
I love this flash drive. Let me tell you now that this thing is small! About the size of a penny, but as thick as a standard USB plug. So if you're afraid you might lose it, DO NOT buy this (more on that later). But, if you want an ultra small USB flash drive, then by all means, DO go out and buy this. I bought the 8 gb version of this flash drive at Best Buy about 2 weeks ago, and have been using it for work basically. The 8 gb was roughly $20 there and I just happened to have a $10 gift card. Being that the 4 gb model was only $5 less, and the 16 gb model was $20 more, I opted to get the mid range 8 gb model. For me personally I think 8 gb was enough. about 3 days into using it, I lost it out of my pocket. OOPS! I looked around all day, only to happen upon it the next morning in the parking lot as I was going into work. It had obviously been ran over by 1 or more vehicles by that time, due to the obvious deep scratches in the drives storage sleeve. when I got into my office I opened it up and seen a slight bend in the plug of the USB. Using a small key, I straightened out the bend and plugged it into a port on the front of my computer. EUREKA! THE DRIVE STILL WORKED! I was fully expecting it to be crushed up and un-salvageable, but that was not the case. I guess being that small has its benefits when being ran over by automobiles. If I can come up with one complaint for the item it's that it does not come with some type of key chain loop or something like that. However, I seen how small it was when I bought it and accepted the risk. So like I said before; if you want a well made, high quality super small USB flash drive. Be sure and give this one a try.

As long as the file format is fat32 you can use it on windows mac or linux.

If using exclusively with windows though it is definitely better to format it to NTFS so you can save files larger than 4gb. (If that's not an issue it's ok to leave it as Fat32 which gives you better inter operating system mobility)

Everything mentioned here is true. There is one small but serious point to consider when you use NTFS - you should make it a habit to always stop your removable storage devices before pulling the plug on them. If you do not remove them securely, then you may cause some stored files to become damaged.

Just wanted to add that I have had this drive for about a year and a half now and still have not had any problems with it. I use it almost daily.

The problem with NTFS is that it's a journaling file system. Which means that it just writes for every time a file is even accessed.
It's highly recommended to use exFAT if and only if the computers in question are newer than Windows Vista (and if not the appropriate updates are installed).
