I am not entirely sure what you mean

If you mean as in just copying and pasting the data, there is a tool avalible called teracopy (make sure to download 2x beta) that will make copying large amounts of files easier

If you mean as in software and drivers, well no luck there. If that is what you are looking for, maybe you should look on the manufacturers website.

The normal answer is that windows may or may not allow that as you state it.

Two issues really. One is you installed stuff with links in registry and maybe hidden or unmoveable files on C or D.

Saying that I have done it. A simple ntbackup and restore to different location and then edit registry for a week might do it.

Other way would be to create a virtual machine from your system and run it off the usb drive as a virual system.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
