Okay.

No feedback available on this issue? Am I the only one encountering it? I was hoping not to have to buy a 64GB flash drive just to work around it, as I have no need for that anything larger than 32GB generally. If I don't hear anything I'll assume it's a bug and file a report. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
