    Hi,
    Portable Workspace Creator in Windows 7989 needs 32 GB to create it.
    if it's possible, please tell me how,
    thanks

    In theory, it should work considering they both store something, and they come in different sizes.
    Give it a try.
    I don't know exactly how to create a portable workspace, that's up to the people posting after me :p
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
