Q: (from Gary)

I was at the seminar and asked you about the specs on a jump/flash drive for Windows to Go setup. Could you let me know the which one would work best for me? I have tried LEXAR, KINGSTON, Data traveler and a few off brands that we have here. I haven’t been successful with any 32G or 64G drive… I should have written down the one that you were using but my colleagues were in too much of hurry.

 

A:

Since my peers posted their blogs about compatible devices (Woody with New USB Flash Drives Certified for Windows-to-Go!!!) and how to build a Windows To Go drive (BVA with Creating Windows 8 USB Windows to Go Drive), there have been some changes; specifically a huge increase in the number of compatible devices. Here is a link to the current list of devices that are certified for Windows To Go and what makes them special:
