Do you have a USB drive loaded with your favorite tools? What is your setup?

Do you have a USB drive loaded with your favorite tools? What is your setup? Personally, I have a 64GB flash drive with a few partitions in it.


I have one partition with all my windows based tools and the remainder of the free space from the other partitions.

In my other partitions I have everything from Linux boot disks (Tinycore, DEFT, Kali, WinFE <<Awesome for those who are just learning forensics OR want a bootable Windows installation with programs already in it.)

On another Partition I have some bootable tools like

  • Hiren's Boot CD,
  • SpinRite,
  • Windows 7 AIO Installer Disc(x86/64 All versions w/ N and enterprise),
  • Win XP AIO x86/64 Installer Disc ( I know, but it does recovery console too and we have some production floor machines (literally printing presses and punch machines and things like that) that still run it),
  • (Working on Making Win 8 and 8.1 AIO Installers)

And I put those in the last partition (Hirens to Windows AIO Installers) all on one partition using YUMI.

What are your favorite tools to bring with you?
