I recently changed my USB to a FAT. I don't understand all of it but accept on faith.
I did have it set another way which let my Windows also see the things on the Drive. Of course now it can not. I store my backup on the USB.
Also on my USB is a partition that holds several live OS. I have KDE, LXDE and XFce.
I am able to reboot and bring up the LXDE and XFce but not KDE. It has been concluded that I don't have enough memory to bring up KDE.
I posed this question to someone: What if I got a new computer which had Windows on it..
and I wanted to transfer my stored Folders to Windows. Or what if I wanted to transfer some of my Folders to a friend's computer running Windows?
As I understand the answer, I can plug in the USB in my (imaginary) new computer with Windows OR into a friend's computer, reboot and bring up either LXDE of XFce Live OS. There I would see the different partions of what ever computer I was on...including Windows and do a copy/paste and transfer any Folder/Files from the USB.
I have done this myself with my own computer. Bring up the live OS, mount whatever partition I want including Windows and make the transfer. (But actually I did the transfer from the partition and not from the saved folders on USB....)
I have taken my USB to two friends each who run Windows. When we plug in my USB and reboot, nothing happens. The USB does not boot. It does not even show as being there in any drive.
I am not sure what my question is, but there must be a question somewhere.
