SanDisk’s new Cruzer Glide is a retractable USB drive that comes in storage capacities of up to 128GB. The review unit we received from SanDisk came with a storage capacity of 16GB. The Cruzer Glide USB flash drive has a sleek, streamlined design with an attractive black and red color scheme. Its compact size means it can easily slip into a front pocket or purse. The USB drive’s connector retracts with a pull of the slide, protecting the drive when it’s not in use.

Each of the Cruzer Glide USB flash drive comes preloaded with SanDisk SecureAccess software which lets you create a password-protected folder for your confidential files and folders. The password protection uses 128-bit AES encryption, so you’ll be able to share your drive without sharing private documents.

The SanDisk Cruzer Glide is a USB 2.0 device and hence the data transfer speed was average. In addition, the Cruzer Glide USB flash drive’s packaging also says that it provides you with free secure online backup offered by YuuWaa (a service owned by Gemalto), an online data storage and backup service.

If you are on the market for decently performing USB drive, the SanDisk Cruzer Glide might be up to the task. In addition, the bundled SecureAccess software is a plus.
