    You can keep your backup image on any drive that windows PE can see. Windows doesn't support partitioning of pen drives - it will only see the first partition so it wouldn't see partitions > 1 if you have partitioned it in another OS.

    You could (I suppose) put both the backup and the rescue image on the same pen drive if you wanted to.

    Once your rescue drive is made you can add anything you want but it all must be in the first partition. When you boot into MR recovery you would then see your backup image on the X drive.

    This is only half true. If you get a pen drive recognized as basic disk then can be treated it as a hard disk which will allow to create partition(s). see screen shot: Disk 6 & 7 both are 16GB Sandisk Cruzer, 6 recognized as Removable, 7 is basic.

    Yes, I have read it somewhere to make pen drive a basic hard disk with third party software. What are the advantages viz disadvantages of making a pen drive a hard disk.
