    It's kind of problem for me to use the cloud.. I'm concerned for my privacy. Besides, I installed in the SD some programs for there's only 32GB HDD, 13GB used by the OS, 16 by other programs and files which i need to open frequently.,. Leaving me with 4GB in the HDD and they are going and fading away..

    Do not give anyone your log in credentials, strong password, the Cloud drive is secure. If this is a tablet, there is not much you can do, other than place stuff on the SD card. You should be able to use a 128gb. They are running around $100 on newegg.com.

    It was Windows to go that was an issue for me. It won't use a USB thumb drive if its flagged as removable media. Some USB thumb drives are coded as fixed disk, the ones Windows To Go certified for example. I also had some Sandisk thumb drives flagged that way. They were too small for Windows to go though. I have a Kingston HyperX 64 GB USB 3 drive I wanted to use for Windows To Go but it rejects it. Then it allows me to install to a junky old 5400 RPM laptop spinner drive in a USB 2 enclosure? It just irks me. I tried all kinds of things to try and make Windows To Go treat the thumb drive as fixed but eventually just gave up. I just let the Pi do its thing. I'm sure the OS can ignore the flag on the drive and treat it as it wants.
