Minimum USB Size for Windows 10 - jknepp - 01-18-2017

I am having issues getting my Windows to Go installed. I purchased the Professional software and I can install it on an external hard drive with no issues; however, I've tried both a 16GB and 32GB stick to install windows 10 and it keeps coming up with insufficient space, do I need more space than that? Most W10 installations are less than 16GB. Thank you.

Sorry for my late response and thank you for buying our product(s). 16G is large enough when using an ISO to create Windows To Go. If you want to clone an existing Windows OS installation to USB drive, the USB drive must be 20% larger than the used space on source boot partition ( usually C: ). You can find the used space in this window:

Every time I've tried I encounter this message.  No matter which I select (legacy, etc)  Please help as I think this could be an invaluable tool for me but I haven't yet been able to make it work on a 16GB or 32GB stick.
