No, you didn't help, because you didn't answer the question. It wasn't "are USB flash drives crap for backup", it was "WHY might they be crap for backup." I heard all sorts of derisive replies saying that they are crap, and very few (and only recent) giving any good reason for it. A couple posters suggested that it was because of cheap components, although I find that to be sort of a half-answer; are they regular parts that failed higher binning standards, or are they actually marginal designs, or a different kind of flash, or what?You do you boo. We tried to help, they (you?) don't want it.
I personally don't care, but I find it irritating when people answer a different question from the one asked, and then get all pissy about it when the original question is pursued.
