And get your own KTD to make sure you have information which could save your life. It is free, you can do it yourself, and you can carry it with you everywhere. I keep mine on my keychain, and it can boot all of my computer with the exception of my android tablet, but I can still access the files on my tablet, or any other computer with a USB drive.
Next month I will be getting a 32 GB SD card to ensure I can use the SD card or Micro SD card to boot a computer either from it's card reader or a SD Card Reader USB adapter. I will be posting my progress on it.
