Live File System

Hello Everyone!!!!!!!
One day when i was browsing through my windows 7 i found an amazing feature of creating CD/DVD as a flash drive. I googled about this but had some confusions:
*Once data is written on them will that space be reusable(after deleting those files) in case of Non Rewritable disks?
*Can the same disk be reformatted to work as a normal disk?
*will it use full dvd5 memory for data storage or just some % memory of it?

  1. *Only works on re-writeable discs.
    *If is re-writeable, yes
    * there is a small space overhead for the type of formating, but almost all of the discs capacity should be accessable.
    *discs may not be recognized on other machines

    Hey Thanks for the reply but then what is the use of this feature as any Rewritable disk can be used multiple times & can be reformatted.

    I agree. The special format allows it to be used in real time as though it were an actual hard drive, vs. the burn/erase/reburn process.

    Personally external USB memory keys and external USB harddrives are more convenient and way faster.
