The Dell XPS 9000 is still around, so there are lots of variations over the years.

I'd guess it is a near certainty that 1.5 TB would be fine.

Kingston Data Travelers are not speed demons. Perhaps average. I've owned several of them.

You can format it FAT32 using third party format tools if Windows won't do it.

I've never run it in Safe Mode.

I have no idea why you wouldn't want to use it.
