I've used a ext4 formatted, unencrypted (!) 64GB SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0
thumbdrive together with Unison. I sync a collection of documentation,
some application configurations and a bunch of git repositories to it.
The sync was done 4-5 days a week. The amount of changes was less than
5MB a day.
IMO SanDisk is a trustful company with products of high quality. But the
thumbdrive has not even lasted a year!
By the way... hdparm reports that the thumbdrive supports TRIM, but I was
never able to use it!
So much for the topic "the firmware will do that". ;-)
