USB

USB is a hardware interface that is used for low-speed peripherals, such as a keyboard, mouse, joystick, scanner, printer, and modem. USB supports plug-and-play installation and hot plugging, and up to 127 peripheral devices can be connected to one USB port. Flash USB drives are now becoming popular, so it may be wise to backup files to a flash memory USB drive to make sure the important information is always at hand.
