Or - extract E2B to an empty folder and then run .\UPDATE_E2B_DRIVE.CMD.
See this page for more details.
If you wish, you can add all the ISOs and .mnu and .txt files, etc. into the extracted folder too, so that when you run UPDATE_E2B_DRIVE.CMD, any new or updated files will be copied across to your E2B USB drive (but no files will be deleted from the USB drive).
If you run the MAKE_E2B_USB_DRIVE (run as admin).cmd file from an E2B USB drive, then a new E2B USB drive will be made and all your payload files, etc. will be copied across to the new USB drive as well.
If you have more than one E2B USB drive and you want to update them all, just connect as many E2B USB drives as possible to the Windows computer (e.g. use a multi-port USB hub) and double-click on \_ISO\docs\make_E2B_USB_Drive\

Looking for things to do with your new E2B USB drive? Look here.
If you are very short of space, you can delete the \_ISO\CONTIG.ISO file if it exists (but you will have to remember to defrag all your ISOs).
Problems using MAKE_E2B_USB_DRIVE.cmd?
Some AntiVirus products may block the \AutoRun.inf file from being copied to the USB drive (or may warn of a possible virus) - this file is not essential. You can either disable your AV or just not have a nice E2B icon displayed in Explorer. There is no virus and the E2B autorun.inf file does not run any program.
Some products which may interfere with process of making or using an E2B USB drive are:
- Bit Defender Client Security
- Genie Timeline Backup Pro
- Lexar JumpDrive Secure USB device
- Panda USB vaccine
- RealPlayer Cloud
- Trend Micro OfficeScan and some other versions of Trend Anti Virus.
- USB Drive Letter Manager (USBDLM)
Trouble when Installing Windows Vista\7\8\10 ISOs?
Note: Check if your USB Flash drive is of the 'Removable' or 'Fixed' type (as listed by Windows Explorer or RMPrepUSB).
If the USB Flash Drive or USB HDD drive is listed as a 'Local Disk' or 'Fixed Disk' then you will either need to
A) also make a USB E2B Helper Removable Flash drive for some functions (e.g. Windows Vista/7/8 install ISOs)
- OR -
B) you will need to use MakePartImage to create .imgPTN bootable files from your Vista/7/8 Windows PE ISOs.
