Extra backup folders on Windows 7 USB install?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey, I have a 32GB USB which has Windows ready to go.

I also need to backup loads of files. Is it possible to put my backup on the USB in another folder, and the install will run smoothly without losing it?

I've installed Windows 8 with a couple PDF files on the USB before, and it installed fine. PDF files were safe after install.

Yep. I store drivers, software, movies, music, all on a 64GB universal usage/repair drive. The installation files are equivalent to a CD. They are not modified when you install Windows to an HDD and nothing else is touched. Everything that's installed to your drive comes out of the main install.wim file anyway.
