Removable Storage Devices (USB and Flash Drives)

  • To store your information externally, IT Services recommends students buy a USB flash drive with the slimmest connector (available at UFV Bookstores).

How to use your USB Flash Drive

  1. Insert your USB flash drive and Microsoft Windows will recognize and initialize the new device.
  2. Save your data on the USB flash drive.
  3. Click the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the bottom-right system tray of Microsoft Windows.
  4. When message says Safely remove USB Mass Storage Device, remove your USB flash drive.


  • Please label your flash drive with your name or number to increase the chances it can be returned to you if ever you accidentally lose it.
  • Please save your work often.
