Poll: How much portable storage do you have?

Poll: How much portable storage do you have?

Long gone are the days when we carry around 3.5″ floppy disks for copies of important documents and files. Even CDRWs are seldom used as well. It’s now mostly flash drives and portable HDDs.

Our poll this time asks how much portable storage do you carry around. USB flash drives are very cheap nowadays and have become a staple giveaway.


There are other types of micro media too like SD cards, CF, Memory Sticks and such. I have a total 7GB (4+2+1) of USB flash disk, 8GB (4+2+1+1) of Compact Flash and 2GB of miniSD. That does not even include iPods and other portable music/media players that double as a portable hard drives.

So, how much portable storage do you carry around? Send in your answers in our poll.

    I have a 512MB flash drive/mp3 player + a 2GB Sony M2. To be honest though, the 512MB flash drive is more than enough for a college student like me. :P

    60GB on my laptop. Since all I do is programming, 60GB is a lot. Most of the space is taken by youtube videos. :P

    I have a portable 160 GB WD Passport that I carry around with my laptop especially when I have to go out of state. It has all my website files, design files, and media. It’s the best!

    Since I designed Sheryn Regis’ and Christian Bautista’s websites, I ALWAYS have to keep the hard drive close to me lalo pag kailangan i-update yung website nung dalawa. :)

    Look it up:

    I also have a 4GB Sandisk Cruzer Mini that I pretty much have on my keychain. I use it in school lalo na pag walang Firefox. U3 is great for those portable apps so you won’t miss them when you’re in another computer.

  24. I use my phone’s storage capability. Its about 1 gig.

  26. I have a 2gb flash drive but don’t use it that much, 512mb-1gb would be enough for my very basic needs. I burn a lot of dvdr’s though.

    I remember buying a 256MB MMC for 2k+ back in 2005!

  27. jerald guillermo says:

    I have a 120GB portable HDD that I carry with me always when I got to work. :)

    Just the same as Mark Above. Since we’re on the same field. Although I don’t cater to Celebrities yet (I hope Mark outsources some to me he he he) Anyways as for the poll I voted more than 8GB of portable storage, I carry around most of the time about 20GB at least and 350Gig at most. Not on my list are the default storage of my computers which amount to about 1Tera.

    In my wallet I have two 2 Gig SD Cards. In my camera pouch I have another two, on my neck a 2gig Imation thumbdrive, and on my car a modified laptop HDD hot plug which is about 80gig. Add to that when I go for a long trip I bring along my Seagate 300Gig portable external.

    Now i feel like a portable storage myself. I am just too paranoid losing data, I still keep all my college HDD’s when it got full.
    Maybe it depends on a persons job and needs…

  29. i always carry this
    1 256MB usb drive
    1 1gb usb drive
    apple ipod 20gb
