Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
 
 

I tried that whs, created a file on the USB drive but it didn't work for me. According to windows you can't include a folder from a removable device in Library's.

Although it does show USB drives could work.

On a USB flash drive
Only if the device appears in the navigation pane, under Computer, in the Hard Disk Drives section. This is set by the device manufacturer, and in some cases, it can be changed. Contact your manufacturer for more information.

Which is interesting because my USB drive does show up under Computer and also shows up in the navigation pane but it wouldn't let me include the file I made on the USB drive in Library's. Maybe I didn't do something right?

You can include folders in a library from many different locations, such as your computer's C drive, an external hard drive, or a network.
Where is the folder stored?
