Question about Windows 7 on bootable flash

I have two quick questions, I used the Windows USB tool to put ISO on my flash drive, but it made me delete everything first. Do you know why this is?

Also, once I have Windows on there, is it okay for me to put other things on my flash driver? Like drivers I want/like or even music? Or will it only work as bootable if just windows 7 is specially put on there?

Thanks.
