I post the below based on the topic "EDC USB drive - what do you carry, what's on it, and why?"
After I started reading I see that the thread is really about I.T. issues. Maybe the title should reflect the actual subject matter?
I don't carry a thumb drive but several microsd cards which will fit in my phone.
The main one is a Kingston 128gb in the phone.
This has all my pictures and music
A folder collected over many years that I call TEOTWAWKI.
I also have offline maps for OsmAnd
Zim files for Kiwix
My EDC includes 3 microsd cards with backups:
1 with wikipedia zim files and the app apk.
1 with all other files and apks
1 with favourite movies encase I have to evac my house and stay in a motel room for some reason. I like to plan ahead.
For I.T. problems maybe have Portable Apps on an USB drive would be useful.
