hi
so to be clear:

this is about wanting to replace portable thumb flash drives which seem to have difficulty when used for 1-2-3 monthly back ups using freefilesync

https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-Ultra-Flash-Drive-Read/dp/B07857Y17V/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=250gb+flash+drive+sandisk&qid=1619505954&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyWFUwUEQ4RjJGMkRGJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMDEyODU4MlE4TVNWQzVROUtaViZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwODUwODY0MVRCTkxCMk82UlZETSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

freefilesync is incredibly reliable but backing up to flash/thumb drives seems to mean not being able to delete files / access trash) when syncing.

The portable ssd drives im looking at is something like this for eg :

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Passport-Portable-Technology-Speeds-1050MB/dp/B08F2CMHP7/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=128gb+portable+ssd+drive&qid=1619506098&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExVjZKMEdYUlVMWUdMJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTgzNDIyMUhLNzVMMjRQS1RIQyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNTg2OTk4M0hFNUw5RDY1S01GQyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pioneer-External-Portable-Solid-APS-XS03-240/dp/B07PXCYCX1/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=portable+ssd+drive&qid=1619506138&sr=8-6

So what im trying to do is keep the ultra small size portability but find a work around for the re-write issues i encounter on flash/thumb drives. portable ssd drives are better for ultra small size than portable hdd drives -

ALSO to ask - how long is it before ssd drives start to lose data ? I'd be backing up every 1-2-3 months .

cheers
