View Full Version : USB flash drive for G75VW Win 8 recovery: 16 or 32 gb?

Hi all,
I'm considering buying a USB flash drive for creating the recovery drive for the Windows 8 on my G75VW.
The recovery prompt says "at least 16gb".
So how much is the capacity of the drive I need? Would one at 16gb be enough or one with greater capacity?
Thank you in advance.

Hi rrnkenshin,

I have just done that. I bought a pendrive of 16GB. It said 14,7GB in Windows, but the BackTracker program completed well the copy. Now I'm trying to boot from the USB to see if it works fine. That's why I'm in the forum haha.

PS: I chose the first options in Backtracker.

Just to make you know,

It used just 9 GB, and to boot from it you need to shut down the computer. If you restart it, it will not boot from USB.

i think 16GB is enought, but you scare you can buy more 16GB.

Thank you!
I'll get an 16GB. It would save me nearly 10$ apart from getting the 32gb.
