This summer I have become a major fan of those great little portable hard drives from Western Digital that plug in to your computer or laptop via USB.  I have one for music, and another for videos, and yet another for important documents, bills, files, etc.

I’m addicted.  There’s something fantastic about being able to visually organize your hard drives and benefit from the inexpensive and fast little hard drive that takes up no space hardly in your back pack or desk.

That said, it can be a major mistake to reboot or start up your pc computer or laptop with one of those great little drives attached.  This can be a sure fire way of passing on a virus to your machine or cranking up a nice little systems error as your machine gets confused by the hard drives listed in its BIOS.
