4 out of 5 eggsLoads as local disk, not removable

Pros: It works

Cons: After much research, Sandisk has decided to have all there newer USB drives be listed as Windows 8 certified. In order to be Windows 8 certified, the drive must load as a local disk, and not load as a removable drive.

Other Thoughts: Since it loads as a local disk, you have the ability to partition the drive in to multiple partitions. This could be a plus for some users (this cannot be done on a drive that loads as removable).

The problem with this is, I have two laptops, as about everyone knows now, when you buy a new laptop, most come with some way to create recovery media. The choices are typically DVD and USB drive. While it is always good to create a set of DVD's for recovery, using them is very time consuming as you need to be at the laptop through the whole process and you will be swapping disks in and out multiple times. I'm not talking about swapping disk one out for disk two, I'm talking about swapping the entire set out up to three times to complete the process.

If you create a USB recovery drive, its a 'boot from USB' process, follow the prompts and let it do it's thing until it is complete.

I have yet to run in to a recovery program from any manufacturer that doesn't require the USB drive to be loaded as removable. I.E. if you buy a sandisk USB drive, and you load the recovery program thinking you are going to create a recovery USB drive, think again. The program will not list this device as an option to use for recovery media.

After spending 45.00+ on two different sandisk drives, I found out the hard way, do not use a USB drive certified for windows 8 for this purpose. The irony is, to create a recovery USB drive for my MSI laptop that came with Windows 8, I used a PNY flash drive, not listed as windows 8 certified, in order to get a successful recovery flash drive.

This drive works, but a person really needs the option to be able to load it as removable, if Microsoft is going to require it to load as local to be certified. I've used Sandisk in the past, they are reliable, but this process of getting this sorted out has soured me from buying any more of their drives as they can't be used for what I typically need them to be used for.
