These questions weren't asked to me, but:
While Terabyte support often weighs in here, I've seen it said that email to firstname.lastname@example.org
often results in quicker, more helpful assistance.
I can't remember whether I've actually backed up to USB flash drives or not. These days, I back up to an external USB hard disk, but I periodically copy the backup file from there to a USB flash drive to have the backup physically separate from the PC just as an extra layer of safety.
