Repeated corruption running linux on USB flash drive

view full story

http://www.unix.com – I have a HP Proliant N40L server and in the internal USB socket I have a 16GB HP v195b flash drive on which I have a full copy of Debian installed from a copy of the DVD1 ISO image. In as far as installation and operation goes my setup works okay, but I keep experiencing corruption of the file system on the flash drive. Originally I used a 4GB flash drive (same brand and model but bought from a different supplier) but needed more space so upgraded. Both drives have experience this problem with corruption, so I can rule out it being just a unlucky experience with bad flash drive. In ord (HowTos)
