What is a Thumb Drive?

Thumb drives are also known as USB drives, Jump Drives and go by a few other names. It’s basically a 2-3 inch portable drive that becomes an external drive when plug into your computer. Original uses have been for media storage or transfer, but now they are being used as external drives with programs.

They can be found with up to 8 gigs of space!

Programs have been developed that can be copied rather than installed.

Typical Windows programs have to be installed. It writes files in Windows so if the program is just copied it won’t work. Developers have created programs that run right from these Thumb Drives and don’t have to be installed in a Windows environment.

They can be combined with free software and you can secure them/encrypt them and it creates a situation where you can carry your files, documents and keep them secure. Without a password they can’t be accessed. So if it’s stolen or lost it can not be accessed.

Who would use this device?

A student for example may not have a laptop or computer of their own. They may use several computers like their parents, friends, or at school. With a thumb drive they can securely carry around their use email program, music files, pictures, documents etc…

Go to

Take any application and write it into the Mojo environment onto an external hard drive you can take it with you and plug it into any machine and run AutoCad from that external hard drive. It does not install the program to the machine.

If your work environment does not give you administrative access it won’t work. Check with your company first.
