The Airport Extreme can share access to a external USB hard disk -- would a USB thumb drive work?

External USB hard disks run $60 or more. We probably just need a few GB for temporary storage when transferring files between machines (in case the machine it's being sent to is off at the moment), so for an economical solution could I just plug an old USB thumb drive into the Airport Extreme and have it share that?

  • Yes, as long as you can re-format it properly, you can use it.
