    Can I use the empty space on my bootable USB drives for storage?


    Hi Long story. But I suddenly find myself urgently needing some disk storage but without the chance to get hold of new hardware. I have several USB flash (SSD) drives which are either emergency/bootable disks for 1) Windows 10 disc image / create installation media or2) Macrium Reflect Rescue PE/ disk images for my computer's C: drive ...and which have a lot of free space on them. Can I store regular files on the empty space without damaging the functionality / bootability ? thanks Win10 Home 64bit / Macrium Reflect Home v7.3.5758

    :)

    Multi-bootable USB

    Hey guys from TPU, couldn't find any specific thread pertaining to the question asked on title. As mentioned, I'm trying to create a bootable USB, but with many specifics boots available.

    I've been trying to create one with multiple boot device including one that enables me to run Windows 10 directly on the USB Thumb Drive but to no avail.

    The list of bootable images i'm trying to create are

    1. Windows 10 (A full OS running from thumb drive)
    2. Windows 10 ISO (Bootable disk image for fresh install)
    3. MemTest86+

    Have tried YUMI or UUI from the website USB PenDrive Linux but as this is my first time, i don't know how am i screwing up or am doing it right.. Anyone got a rough idea on a step by step guide? Thanks!

    How to remove a bad drive in Windows 10 storage spaces pool

    Could someone list the steps involved in replacing a bad drive from a Windows 10 storage spaces pool? I cannot find any info on the Microsoft support site that is specific to Windows 10. Also, could you list the steps to remove a 'good' drive and replace
    it with another drive if the process is different?
