Found this item on Retrevo, and it was a steal! More than made up for the space lacking on my 8Gb stick. Flash drive is still in use today. I have a 32 Gb drive that I now use day to day, but the 16 GB drive here is still in use for storing files on. I do have some files that I use the password protection on, and that does not cause any slowness or access problems at all.
