As far as I have seen they can take a lot of physical punishment before the data becomes unreadable. However as far as long term integrity of a flash drive left in draw for ten years I don't know. I think this is because they are a fairly new product so we are the guinea pigs testing there longlevity. Just as you can't age scotch or fine wine other than by the passage of time, the evaluation of the long term survival of data on a flash drive will take time.

Thanks friend, a great load of information with further links. I'm soon off to the ethernet to lose myself in the glorious technology of USB thingies. Before I go I will tick 'Resolved'.
Thanks again.

Please accept my apologies and those of the NHS.
My arthritic fingers don't help a lot in making nippy answers.
