Windows 7: Save apps for a clean install?

29 Aug 2009   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

I've been doing the same thing as the "SDHC" guy. I use an 8GB flash drive. It's very nice. You can install and get all your apps running in 20 min.

20 min...sounds great...can you give me the details of how to do it? Can I use my external hard drive in place of a flash drive?

Not to be rude, but you should refer to it as SDHC, not SD.

I think I've read that SDHC cards are not compatible with SD card readers...
Some are, depending on age, firmware versions, ect...

I have a 16Gb U3 I use to install Windows...
It's nice =)
