We recommend installing Read&Write onto a blank formatted USB drive.

If you’re restoring to a USB that has a previous copy of Read&Write Mobile, you can format the USB by choosing the Format target device before installation checkbox available during installation of Read&Write. Otherwise, we recommend manually formatting the USB key before running the USB Key setup.

WARNING:  This will delete existing data on the USB key.  Data that you wish to retain should be copied to another storage device PRIOR to installation.
