It's a shame you can't see it. The background is a lovely manga style image.

Two months ago I was going to buy a couple of usb 3.0 128G flash drives, but at the last moment I switched to a usb 3.0 3T external HD because I also could use it for system backup and data backup at the same price. Nevertheless it helped after I made 2 adjustments: set syzygy probe depth to 24, and defragment syzygy files. I keep the 3-4-5 men syzygy files on a usb 3.0 flash drive in the other usb 3.0 port.

Hi Ted:

That looks like a very good flash drive.....but why not get a SSD with twice the capacity for similar price as the 256GB flash drive?? (or a SSD with the same capacity that costs less)
