Flash drives loaded with diagnostic apps, portable tools, and other goodies have become a significant part of most geeks’ computer fixing tool kits. What’s in your kit?

This week we want to hear all about the contents of your flash drive. What tools do you have squirreled away in there? What do they do? Which ones have really saved you in a time of need?

Come Friday we’ll round the responses, compile a list, and share all your favorite tools with the greater How-To Geek audience. The more detailed your list and description the better chance we’ll share your tool kit goodies.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
