    Default I'm a bit confused.....

    I want to install BT4 to a USB drive. I've been doing a bit of reading on what size driver I would need to install the OS and came across three different points of views regarding the size. I first read that 2GB was needed for a successful installation, then came across something saying a 4GB minimum. I just now came across a post saying 8GB. My question is how big should the drive be? I just got a 4GB driver in the mail yesterday, will that work or does it have to be bigger? Thank you all for any help.

    You could have remained in a topic on this subject.

    To answer your question: I've had BT installed on a flash drive, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB, all worked perfectly for my purpose. Currently I have installed on a 4GB!

    Well, it depends ... 2Gb will do the job, however if you run a persistent BT setup you will need room for updates, new packages, rainbow tables ... so go for a 8Gb thumb (at least 6 Gb for changes).
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
