    Question I need some Information Please

    Hey,

    I'm just new to backtrack 4 and i have installed it on a USB but before i boot i just want to check that it wont do anything to my hard drive that i have win vista on for example editing the partitions etc
    i would like to know if it would stay confined to the pen

    Yes. It will only run from USB.

    Assuming you don't do anything with it or run anything from it that you don't understand you should be fine.

    When you boot from the USB device it might mount your HD and you will still have access to forensics tools, partition tools, an installer, etc.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
