Then put the TXT file on all of them. It will be a whopping 63 bytes in size. I am sure each thumb drive will have the space.

Like you do with you supply of shoes, purses, and ( well I better stop there if I want to stay on here)!
I'd still need to locate the them. As to the shoes/purses equation, that wouldn't work here. I'm not a shopper, have one purse (3 or 4 years old) and probably have more USB sticks than I have pairs of shoes.

I was teasing. Your suggestion is a good idea and may indeed work for someone needing this solution.

Corrine,
I would have lost my behind on betting you had more shoes and purses than that.
I took the test and it would take a hacker 117 days to crack mine so I guess I better think of a better one.........right now it's "PassWord" just joking of course.
