comment What is the difference between size and size on disk?
Allow me to add to your answer. The allocation unit (bucket) size is chosen based on the size of the disk. If you're using a bucket to empty a bathtub, you would choose a smallish bucket. If you're emptying a swimming pool, you'll use a bigger bucket.

comment JPEG vs PNG vs BMP vs GIF
jpg allows for different levels of compression. A more highly compressed file will suffer a greater loss in quality. It is up to you to decide how much quality you want vs how big the file is. (You can't regain quality once it is lost.)

comment Can I upgrade old case USB 1.1 sockets to USB 2?
From your description, is sounds like the (memory?) stick may be a 1.1 device.

comment What if a USB was plugged in backwards, what would happen, and would Windows warn you?
A luser would never force it. They'd just get a bigger hammer.
