  1. Unplugging power before the PC boots into the USB stick. Can it corrupt files?


    How would I know? I've unplugged the PC 2 seconds after booting it by mistake. It didn't get to enter into the stick boot, but I wonder if it could deal damage. I am seeing the setup worked without any errors and it gets the updates after the windows installation.

  2. Corrupted file RAR

    If the archive has been created using WinRAR, why don't you try WinRAR itself? It has a built-in repair feature for repairing corrupted archive (ZIP as well as RAR). Follow the steps given below:
    • Open WinRAR application in your system.
    • Now click on File tab > Open or simply press Ctrl+O.
    • A small window "Find Archive" will pop up. Locate the corrupt RAR archive from your system directory and select it.
    • Now click Open button.
    • Click Tools tab > Repair archive or simply press Alt+R.
    • Again a small window "Repairing File name.rar" will pop up.
    • Now click Browse to select a location to save the repaired archive.
    • Check the box "Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and click OK.
    • WinRAR will start repairing of corrupt RAR archive. Once it gets completed click Close.
    I hope the above steps will help you repair the corrupted RAR archive.

    Thanks.

    Installing windows off of a USB stick

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk

    Unplugging power before the PC boots into the USB stick. Can it corrupt files?

    Strange usb stick/keyboard issue

    Sounds like the one USB stick may have some corruption issues or drawing too much power? One suggestion is that you could take the keyboard and plug in the back non 3.0 usb port? It is going to waste on a keyboard when you could have that slot open anyways for high speed transfers! Just a suggestion. Or also try copying the files all the one USB stick and reformat it and then copy the files back and try again. Hope the ideas help!
