Making a bootable flash drive with separate storage partition?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I wanted to create a windows bootable pendrive. I have a 32 gb (around 29 gb usable space) pendrive and the windows iso is hardly 6 gb. So what I thought is if I make a 7 gb partition and keep windows bootable image there. And make the rest 22 gb separate partition for normal usage for keeping files etc.

Will it work or is there any better method to get this job done?

You're overthinking this. Once you create the bootable Windows USB, the free space is available as part of the primary partition.

 

Just create a folder and call it whatever you want.

 

For example, I have several install USB's with Software and Drivers folders, and I keep a ton of files on them. On top of that, USB drives really don't like to have multiple partitions, and while you can do it, there's really no reason to do so.
