    I'm a high school student, so I always carry a USB. Most of my stuff is on google drive, but our school proxy is a little fickle with email related services, so I keep a flash drive just in case I need to transfer something from my own netbook to the school computers.

    I used to load up a linux distro on it (usually the latest mint LTS or lubuntu 12.04, both 32bit to ensure the greatest compatibility), but now I carry a live DVD, keeps my flash drive freer. I've never needed it, but I'm hoping that someday someone's laptop hardrive will go kaput and I'll be able to whip out my disk and show off my tech prowess.

    I carry one so that I can copy the plans for world domination if I happen to stumble across The Evil Dr. Pork Chop's notebook.

    I carry an encrypted drive with scans of my vaccination records, passport, ID, Driving license, Wedding certificate, insurance, etc.
    I have a similar one in my BOB.
