Question by Otn Gnillet: why do flash drives have “locks” on them?
I mean, there doesn’t seem to be a point to them. They can be “unlocked” with the flick of a switch, so they’re not for security…
Answer by …………….
If the flash drive lock switch is set to lock then you cannot overwrite the data inside it. It’s similar as the lock unlock switch found on the floppy disks.
If you have really important data on a flash drive you simply lock it and there is no way you can overwrite them. So wrong they do secure and protect your data.
