program saving


when i download a program and install it, instead of just deleting the download i save it to a usb flash drive,
when/if i need to reinstall my operating system then i don't need to mess about looking for programs to download - just grab the usb, shove it in and off i go,

anyone else do this ?

This sounds like an excellent idea to me.

The last USB thumb drive I bought did not work for me, or I would use it.

I have been thinking about getting another USB drive, and could use it for that purpose.:)

I've got three USB drives, 1gb, 2gb and 4gb, they all have bit's and bobs on them for easy access or transfer.

I've also got a partition on one of the HDD's loaded with goodies. In fact, I've got partitions galore, loaded with bit's and bobs.
