Samsung USB 3.1 Flash Drive FIT Plus (64GB-256GB)
In need of something smaller? The Samsung FIT Plus is designed to plug in and stay. With it you can expand your storage with a compact flash drive that is seamless and unobtrusive. The penguin edition of the drive includes options for formatting with GNU/Linux friendly filesystems such as ext4 making the drive a better fit for GNU/Linux users looking to transfer large files (those over 4GB), doing routine data transfers between GNU/Linux systems, and backing up data all without running into permission (with the selection of ext4 we'll make sure the ACL bit are appropriately set for maximum ease of use between GNU/Linux systems) or other issues.

We're not going to be holding back any secrets to achieving a smooth user experience either. If you've never formatted a USB drive before or ran into issues like we're describing and want to learn how to format a drive for optimal results check out this great little video.
  • Optionally formatted with ext4 and set with the right ACL bits to ensure maximum functionality and use between GNU/Linux systems without having to deal with user permission issues

  • Optionally formatted with fat32 so there is no need to install special drivers on any operating systems

  • Optionally formatted with NTFS for optimal compatibility on larger drives between GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows systems
When you select the ext4 w/ acl option under file systems our drives work great for performing offline backups of your data: Check out this video tutorial on how to securely perform a backup up & restore of your entire home folder using Déjà Dup even between different distributions and releases (included with many popular distributions).

Don't forget an extension cable. If your ports are too close together there may not be enough room for connecting components. Pick up a short 1' / 12 inch USB extension cable with your order.
