Creating Boot Flash Drives
Dr.Web LiveCD may be used as a portable operating system customized according to a user's needs to access data on any computer regardless of the OS and software installed. To save and reuse individual settings created during a session in Dr.Web LiveCD, it is necessary to write Dr.Web LiveCD files to a flash memory. For this the CreateLiveUSB command is used.

All Dr.Web LiveCD files are written to the /boot catalog. CreateLiveUSB changes the configuration of the partitions of the flash drive, if necessary; the original configuration is saved to the file /boot/partition.backup. CreateLiveUSB copies the MBR on the flash drive storing the original master boot record to the file /boot/mbr.backup.

To create a boot flash automatically
1. In the graphic shell, double-click the Create Live USB icon on the desktop. CreateLiveUSB will switch to the waiting mode of a device connection through the USB port.
2. Connect the flash drive. It takes maximum ten seconds for a connection to be registered. If the connected flash drive has several partitions, LiveCD files will be written to the bootable partition, the bootable flag will be removed from other partitions.

To create a boot flash drive manually
3. Open the command-line terminal: In the graphic shell, click the icon of the application on the desktop. In the safe mode, select Start Shell on the main menu.
4. (Optional.) To check drives mounted on the computer, and partitions on flash drives, issue the mount command: /bin/mount or mount.
5. Execute the command create_usb [device] or CreateLiveUSB [device]. For example, create_usb sda1
