SanDisk Cruzer Blade 32 GB flash drive is originally partitioned with FAT32 filesystem, where first partition starts on 32nd block. The USB insert part is made of plastic instead of metal which could make it prone of being physically damaged after multiple re-insertions while the SanDisk warranty does not cover any flash drive which is physically damaged. SanDisk Cruzer Blade does not come with a protective guard for the USB insert part.
SanDisk Cruzer Blade flash drive is not registered as a removable USB device and some programs may not recognize it.
