      Hi Neil, I'm not sure where to post this, but you seem to be up on a lot of issues and have been very helpful in the past, so I thought I'd run it by you. I want to make a bootable flash drive. I did it before using WinToUSB, burning a 64 bit 8.1Pro ISO onto a flash drive, and all went well. Then I realized I couldn't use that if I wanted to access a 32 bit computer, so decided to burn my 32 bit Win8Pro onto the flash drive. I am able to make the bootable flash drive easy enough, but the program partitions my flash drive into two partitions [a small boot drive (C) and a larger OS drive (D)]. The problem is everything seems to be downloaded to the small boot drive (including Windows updates), so it quickly runs out of space. Rather than dual booting, I'd like to have a backup flash drive that would allow me to access a computer if the OS crashes. Have you any thoughts or suggestions to address this? Thanks for all your help. Barry
