    Hello visitor

    You may wish to consider obtaining a USB Flash drive. They hold anywhere from 32 MB to 512 MB and plug into your USB port. They are fast and practical and do not cost much.

    They are available at your local electronics shop or shop online.

    Best wishes

    Hi QSection

    Just wonder how such thing be delt with in the past
    when there weren't USB flash drive. Its true they are not expensive but is not worth buying it just for sake of transfering few links.
