    I would assume all your precious files are already redundantly backed up on different hard drives and dvd's - the usb is only for transporting files not as backup ?!?

    So you have to re-case it every time you use it. Most flash drives will be fine if you drop them in water

    This is just to make sure its completely secure if you accidently jump into the pool with it. Yes you would have to re-case it every time, but it insures that your precious family photos, files, etc. are safe.
