    Running programs from microsd cards and usbs

    Is there any issues with installing programs to microsds or usbs? My definition of this is changing the install location, when the installer asks if so and so location is okay, then changing it to the appropriate drive or using a portable version. Or am I better off installing to 4gb dvds?
    The issue is that I have a really large program that I need for college and if I install in the current state, I won't have any space left. Also my toshiba is dying (its been a faithful machine for the past several years, that's been abused by 3 teenagers, subject to food and liquefied cheese, and a cat who thought it was his bed). Previously I would have used my toshiba, but it's getting annoying with crashes in the middle of college work.
    I do use cleanup utilities found in the control panel, and store all non programs on usbs, harddrive, and SD cards.
    I am obsessed with deleting duplicates, unnecessary files, and uninstalling programs I don't need, to maximize my free space.
    Also I would like to be able to use some of the programs in my college's computer lab, running off storage(usb, dvd, or ext. harddrive).

    So pros or cons any one?

    Also I saw something that it wasn't recommended to format flash drives in nfts- is that true?
