Jump Drive/Thumb Drive

The name given to small easily transported devices (approximately the size of your thumb, hence the nickname) that utilize flash memory for data storage. Jump drives benefit from being plug-and-play, as the computer recognizes the drive nearly instantly and can access the drive without configuring or installing. Thumb drives are currently available in sizes ranging from 8MB to 2GB.
