    It’s not a crazy thought at all. It’s what we do especially in big biz when we Raid 5 a group of drives to act act as one. A person could plug in 5 or 6 in one of those cheap USB hubs and gain a Big Drive. Too much trouble for me. I would just as soon have 6 little 8GB flash drives, F:G:H:I:J:K: and L:. YMMV.

    Could flash drives be “daisy-chained” rather than in parallel?

    Don’t know why a manufacturer or consumer would want this. It’s just a crazy thought:)

    [@Seamus McSeamus] [@Pravin] I think it was actually a sign of giving up on Pravin who didn’t understand the sarcasm in Seamus’s first post.

    [@Seamus McSeamus] Seamus, I must be out of it today. I haven’t checked on the wires to my head. What does “goes back to bed” mean? Oh please, master of words, tell me…

    For removing your USB device without properly ejecting it first, you are hereby sentenced to 6 months working a level one helpdesk.
