bootable media and system backup in the same pen drive.

I have a pen drive with enough capacity and I wonder if I can i have a bootable media and a system backup in the same pen drive?

    Welcome Jurodj, thank you for the question. I understand you are interested in putting backup files or other files onto a USB utility. I have created many Aomei USB utilities, and then put backup files, or small other files onto a separate folder onto the USB drive, and it has always worked.
    Before trying this, of course always backup your essential files onto a 3rd drive to be kept separately for safety.
    If you are new to using Aomei USB utilities, you should use the standard USB creator. If you are experienced, you could use Ventoy to create an Aomei USB.
    Backupper WinPE USB:
    Add custom drivers, such as NVMe, if necessary. Does not work on some Monitors.

    Partition Assistant WinPE USB:
    Add custom drivers, such as NVMe, if necessary.

    Aomei (Win)PE Builder USB:
    Best for PCs before 2020, includes Partition Assistant, Backupper, Recuva, 7zip, OSF Mount, CPU-Z, Bootice, DiskMgmt.msc. Supports x64 portable apps. Does not support any additional drivers, such as some internal M.2 NVMe disks.
    Free utility not from Aomei:
    Ventoy - Best Multiboot USB Creator
    Put all bootable ISOs on 1 USB Stick, open source

  • @Jurodj, You need to first create WinPE bootable media, and then create backup to it.
