An year long through a hundred college events that flaunted their food specials but wait they always had the tints of unhygienic and unoriginal stale taste. Yet, more than that was my disability to click more pictures as I won’t agree to delete the previous. And while hundreds of other solutions were processing in the background, I bought myself the SanDisk iXpand mini Flash Drive.
No, I mean.. I do save a back up on Google Drive but it is of compressed resolution.. and when I wish to post it, I would have to download it again and then upload it on some social media that would undergo it’s automated file compression algorithms. I prefer to keep a backup of my pictures in its original resolution.
I have an iPhone and as legends say or rather show, it’s a pain in the ass. It just doesn’t work properly. And it’s not just pictures! My song playlist and yes, my own hummingbird-like recorded Bollywood song audios, daily mischief videos, read-as-you-go travel time ebooks, app cache and what-not is stored in them. For iPhone users, there is a different tab for transferring each of the files. Simply put, accessing the file management system is frustrating.
I could. But, my phone would become vulnerable to a lot of viruses, it’s durability would decrease and things would be messy sooner or later for no reason which I do not plan to concentrate on near future.
This device eliminates the need for iTunes to serve as an intermediate in transferring files. The file system management has become convenient since I have started using my SanDisk iXpand Mini Flash Drive with 128GB storage. It is portable and definitely, my time saver!
I just had to download one iOS app, that is, the SanDisk iXpand Drive which is developed by the SanDisk and takes about only 170MB of my phone’s storage. It helps me take up a back up of my files present in my iOS devices and allows me to view them later. So, I also get to play my videos and music directly from the Flash Drive instead of using my phone’s battery. But, of course at the expense of my phone’s battery. The drive does not have a battery of its own.
Attending events has become far easier for me now! Thankfully, now I don’t need to compromise on clicking hundreds of pictures a day of the smallest of things, as I get to free up space on phone via this iXpand drive.
This SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive has one lightning connector to access files on my iOS devices and another USB 3.0 connector to access files on my PC or make a secure transfer of files in between my iOS devices and PC.
Yet, I would love to give out another disclaimer. Selecting files on this app for transfer is a bit of a hectic problem for it is too slow. But yes, it does not prevent me from utilising all of its benefits. Hence, it may look up to be a pretty expensive commodity, but till now it has proven to serve my requirements. I definitely recommend its purchase!
