Hello and Good Morning Everyone,
I am wondering if it is possible for new and unused external USB flash drives to become defective or bad over time. The reason I ask is because I am considering buying a pack of external USB flash drives for quick and convenient data backup and restore purposes. Realizing there might be some new ones which might not get used for several months or even a year, I do not want to take a chance on them going bad simply because of non-use.
Any thoughts shared to this question will be appreciated.
