    Yes, its enough and make sure you turn off superfetch and the page file otherwise you will burn through the read/write cycles.

    In turns of lag, make sure you use a usb 3.0 to be on the safe side.

    It is enough but... do what @TechFreak1 mentioned and try to disable Windows Updates. I do think that only certain Windows-To-Go flash drives work with portable windows installations... unless you're talking about USB hard drive of 32GB and you still might have trouble with installation. I could be wrong but hey.

    I would go with 64 honestly. The install can blow up quite a bit with updates and whatnot.

    I would also choose 64GB over 32GB really.

    64 is the more wise choice over 32GB but it is a possible installation on the cramped 32GB
