watch out for fake large space USBs on Amazon. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. You can't get 1TB flash USB for $15

is fine but slow, ensure use tmp dirs, cache, and variable files in ramdisk and not in usb to long usb life

are you kidding, or being serious? The TB flash drives will show up in Windows (and maybe other OS's I dunno)--but they don't actually have that amount of space available. I thought they seemed fishy when I first saw them...

and by chance one day I watched a YT video about them. If you have found a TB drive, and actually put that amount of data on it, and are able to read the data, I would be very curious to know where you got it/brand name.

Running an OS likely means you'll be dealing with frequent write cycles, which will kill the flash drive quicker.

If you plan on going this route, be sure to backup your data often.

If you use this flash drive on a daily basis, consider using a Virtual Machine or even dual-booting instead.
yes I agree with this 1000%. Use external hdd or ssd

USB sticks will die after a certain amount of read / write actions. For installation its OK, to run it just use a HD.
