WinToUSBWinToUSB ›  Cloning Windows 10 on a bootable stick with WinToUSB

0 votes

I have a 64 GB flash drive and want to clone just the Windows 10 system files (54.2GB), not the whole 118G SSD C:\ drive. Is this possible?

Judging by the application's online documentation, I don't think that is possible as WinToUSB also clones the third-party tools installed on your Windows. However, I recommend contacting the developers using this email address:
and asking them directly if there is any way for you to select which files and programs get cloned to the USB memory stick.

Alternatively, you could try installing a secondary Windows on a different partition, setting up the applications that you need, then cloning that operating system instead of your main one.

WinToUSB will copy all the files in source boot partition (Usually C: ) to the destination USB drive, so the destination USB drive must be larger than the used space on source boot partition. And WinToUSB requires that the destination boot partition must be 20% larger than the used space on source boot partition, the used space on your boot partition (C:) is 54.2 GB, so you need at least a 66GB (54.2GB * 1.2 = 65.04GB) USB drive if you want to copy your Windows OS to it as a portable Windows.
