    Not a bootable USB but a full install.

    If I install Diskwarrior on that same OS it won't make much difference right?



    16GB safe?

    How come people installing DW on a full install of OSX on a flash drive are recommending 32?

    Strange indeed.

    8GB is a very tight fit and doesn't allow a recovery partition, but 16GB give more room for additional applications.
