Various kinds of brand flash on the market have different qualities and prices that also affect the useful life of the flash is concerned. However, it is not absolute. It would be nice if we get used to minimize the process erase-write flash for flash is more durable age. Get used to work carefully and correctly so we do not repeat to save on the flash that means repeating the process of writing on the flash. Minimize edit data directly on the flash. Should do well on computer editing, after all correct and no correction then move into the flash.
Also not recommended to run the program directly stored in the flash, although the mini-games or portable applications, because it will reduce the age of the flash itself. Move the first program into a computer.
