Gone are the days when you had had only 1.4 MB space in your floppy disk. Now, the USB drives (pen drives) come with at least 1 GB and up to 32 GB as the storage volume. Those days, the CD or DVDs were the only installation media but, now we can use USB disk as the installation media as it is re-writable and performs faster than the optical disk drives.
