Copy to USB

I have a very large program that I would like to copy to a USB drive. I have never attempted this, so, I would like to know if it is possible and a suggestion as to how to do it. I have IMG burn and Ashampo Burning Studio. Thank you.

Copying to a USB drive is no different than copying to another internal drive or to a different folder on the same drive. Just use the Windows Explorer to copy from your hard drive to the USB drive. A large file may take a little time but nothing else to do. The burning programs such as IMGBurn or Ashampo are ONLY for burning data to a CD or DVD.

Have to agree with fireberd on this one.

Though the more files you have the longer it will take, up to the point where windows crashes. Large files are no issue, having a LOT of files is.

However if you were looking for an app other than Windows Explorer, there would be this:

Haven't used it myself but I think it is worth a try, if this was something you had in mind?
